/DOOR CLOSES/

BEN: Hey, you’re back.

GRACE: Yep.

BEN: Everything good?

GRACE: Good. Fine. How’s Olive?

BEN: Hanging out in her room.

GRACE: Were you seriously not gonna tell me about our daughter shoplifting? You don’t think that’s something that I would want to know?

BEN: Olive asked me not to. I’m trying to gain her trust back.

GRACE: She’s 15 and in trouble. Of course she asked you not to.

The Danny connection

BEN: How’d you find out?

GRACE: That’s not the point, Ben.

BEN: Danny. You talked to Danny. I thought you ended it with him.

GRACE: I did. He only called me to tell me what happened with Olive. He felt awful. Ben, you can’t keep secrets from me about my own daughter!

BEN: Our daughter.

GRACE: Of course that’s what I meant. I want you to be half of this parenting team. I cannot do it alone, but neither can you. Trust me, you have no idea what we’ve been through with her.

BEN: “We”? Meaning you and Danny?

GRACE: Ben, you weren’t here.

BEN [SCREAMING]: I am now! And neither one of you seem to be able to let this guy go. [PAUSE] But maybe it’s not fair for me to ask you to.

GRACE: Ben It’s okay.

BEN: I’m gonna get some air.
