Script & Commentary

Scene switches to Bluemercury cosmetic store.

MAKE-UP ARTIST: What can I help you find today?

BEN: Oh, just my daughter. Brown hair, adorable, answers to the name Olive.

MAKE-UP ARTIST: Olive Stone?

BEN: Yeah.

MAKE-UP ARTIST: I’m afraid we caught her shoplifting.

BEN: Oh. Where is she?

MAKE-UP ARTIST: In the back. But I thought her dad was already here. There they are.

Olive is standing next to a man.

OLIVE: Dad, what are you doing?

BEN: Hi.

Man walks up to Ben.

DANNY: Uh, I’m DannyGrace’s—

BEN: I know.

DANNY: Sorry. Uh, Olive called me. She didn’t really know what to—

BEN: Thanks. I can take her from here.

DANNY: Okay. I’ll just – Bye, Olive.

OLIVE: Thanks.

Danny leaves the store.

Though the introduction was inevitable, you had to feel for Ben given the circumstances: Olive, after being pinched for pinching some make-up, decided that her other “dad” would be her Phone-a-Friend. —SOURCE: Matt Webb Mitovich (TVLine)
