INT./EXT. CAR/DRIVE THRU WINDOW - DAY

 

WORKER DUDE

Two strawberry shakes. One Neopolitan. And a

large fry. That'll be $16.92

 

TIA

Escándalo!

Tia puts her nail polish brush back in its bottle.

VANESSA

Times have changed Tia, cough it up.

 

Tia pulls down her top a little and pushes up the twins. She leans over Vanessa toward the drive-thru window, laying the accent on thick.

TIA

Escuse me hansom youn man- it's my daughter's

birthday right here.

She blinks flirtatiously. Vanessa fake smiles. 

 

VANESSA

No. It isn't. And she isn't my mom.

 

TIA

She's a shy. Plis. She jus' turn seventeen.

Almost legal!

 

Vanessa pushes Tia's face away. She digs in her backpack.

 

VANESSA

I actually don't even know her.

TIA

She needs a date to the dance!

 

WORKER DUDE

Just take the free shake, kid.

 

The worker dude puts Vanessa's credit card into a Square reader and hands her a bag of fries.

 

WORKER DUDE(CONT'D)

Careful they're hot.

 

Vanessa grabs the fries and quickly plops them in Tia's lap. They catch on fire. Tia smacks them to snub them out.

TIA

!Ay! !Ay!

She throws the smoking bag of fries back out the window. It hits the worker dude's face as he holds out the shakes.

TIA

Bainesa that was young and hormonal and tonto.

Have you been taking your pills?

 

VANESSA

He said they were hot.

 

TIA

You're grounded.

 

VANESSA

Are you cereal?

 

TIA

No.

They look at each other, then both crack up. The worker dude clears his throat. Vanessa reaches for the shakes.

 

VANESSA

Just the shakes, thanks.
