Script & Commentary
STEVE: Oh, aren’t you supposed to be at work? Day off.
MICHAELA: I thought we could eat some pizza and catch up like old times.
STEVE: Come on. I’m sick of sitting out here alone.
STEVE: What’s up, honey? Hmm?
MICHAELA: I miss Mom, Dad.
STEVE: Yeah. Yeah. Me, too. Most nights, I sit out here just to feel close to her. Well, I appreciate the pepperoni, but what’s on your mind, kiddo? Hmm?
MICHAELA: Today, I saw one of Mom’s afghans.
STEVE: Oh she was always making those damn things. I mean, I couldn’t sit down without getting a crochet hook in my ass.
/THEY BOTH LAUGH/
STEVE: Ah. You’re young. You can still have all that and more.
MICHAELA: I know, but on the plane, I made the decision I was gonna say yes.
STEVE: You still want to be with him?
MICHAELA: Of course I do, Dad. How could I not?
STEVE: Then go get him, sweetie.
MICHAELA: He’s married.
STEVE: Only because he thought you were gone. I told your mom. I-I didn’t think. he ever stopped loving you.
MICHAELA: So what would she tell me to do, then? She’d want you to be happy.
STEVE: I mean, if you love him, tell him.
MICHAELA: That is crazy advice, Dad.
