INT. DINING ROOM. HOME - WEEK BEFORE CHRISTMAS
With the television on, two female FRIENDS since their days of college in the 1970's, are dining.
Remember the love-ins?
How can I forget? That's how I met Jake.
How's it been since the divorce?
I miss him, Susan.
Susan nods sympathetically. After a brief silence, a program grabs her attention.
Oh my God. Look what's on.
INSERT TELEVISION PROGRAM:
For this entire week, our special guests will be John Lennon
and Yoko Ono. Welcome back, John, Yoko.
Remember the episode where they tried to spread the word
of love by randomly calling people and saying I love you.
We were idealistic then.
As she excitedly turns to Cynthia,
Let's do it!
Make calls and say I love you.
It wasn't then.
It's different now.
What jaded adults we've become. Well, I say, as adults,
it's up to us to keep that flame of love burning.
(shaking her head)
Where is it?
Susan searches for and finds the telephone book. As she sits,
I feel like burning incense and turning on a lava lamp.
While Cynthia lightheartedly rolls her eyes, Susan runs her finger down a list of names, then stops.
Don't frighten her.
Hello? Is this Helen Davis.
My name is Susan Turner. I'm calling to say I love you
and if you would spread the love by...
She hung up!
You know that's all we're going to get.
Cynthia's eyes light up.
After she dials, Cynthia hears a man's HELLO.
I wanted to call to tell you...
I love you and if you would spread...
So, you're watching the old Michael Douglas Show
with John and Yoko too.
Susan and I are.
Those were the days.
I'll never forget them.
Nor I, Cyn.
Merry Christmas, Jake.
Merry Christmas, Cyn.
When she hangs up, she begins to CRY. Susan rises to hug her. The telephone RINGS. They stare at the telephone, then exchange glances. Answering it,
I love you too, Cynthia.
FADE TO BLACK
