GRACE: Hey, babe.
Ben is playing a game on his tablet.
BEN: How was your day?
BEN: Well, how about I hang out with him? He’ll start school soon, so I want to max out all the free time we got left.
GRACE: I thought you were doing resume follow-up.
BEN: Done and dusted. It’s just a waiting game now.
GRACE: Well, I’m sure you’ll get a lot of great offers.
GRACE: Well, get going. And have fun.
From across the room, Cal shouts.
CAL: Dad! “Fortnite” totally rocks. You gotta learn to play.
BEN: Well, then you gotta teach me
As he walks toward his son, he stops suddenly.
CAL: Um, Dad?
BEN: Hey. Do you ever feel like someone else is controlling your life?
CAL: Only, like, all the time. You, Mom, Grandpa, all of my doctors.
BEN: [CHUCKLES] And being controlled is no fun, right? So what do you say we try a little chaos theory? Be unpredictable.
CAL: Cool. How?
BEN: We don’t make any decisions. We flip a coin, and we leave it to chance. And nobody’s in charge. Okay?
He holds up a coin.
CAL: Sounds great.
BEN: All right. Here we go.
He flips the coin. /Coin Clinks/
BEN: All right, let’s go! Masters of our own destiny.
GRACE: I like the sound of that. Have a great day, guys.
BEN: We’ll see you later.
They leave out the front door.
