TITLE CARD: FRIDAY 7:59 AM -- ALARM
INT. MARY’S APARTMENT - MORNING 2 EXTREME CLOSE-UP: Mary’s closed eyes
The RADIO ALARM CLOCK STARTS TO PLAY PEPPY MUSIC. MARY DELANY opens her eyes. She’s in her twenties and needs something to happen in her life.
MARY’S POV: the radio alarm clock, the lava lamp, the rice-paper light overhead. Mary turns the clock radio off.
Still sleepy, Mary dresses.
Mary boils water. She opens the tea tin: empty.
Mary frowns and then looks into the trash can. She shrugs and takes a used tea bag out of the trash, cleans it off and puts it in the tea cup. Mary pours boiling water over it.
Mary pulls out the tea bag and throws it away again. She sips the tea and winces in disgust -- but keeps drinking.
MARY’S POV: an alley, trees, an antennae dish.
CUT TO: MARY’S POV: she washes the tea cup and puts it away.
