INT: LAST WEEK; Beneath the flashing lights of the E! Holiday Christmas party.
GGC sees a familiar face across the bar. She squints and tries to remember how/why she knows the attractive young woman. For the life of her she cannot remember where they have met. Through business? Pleasure? Were they old friends? She waves, anyway.
The MYSTERIOUS YET FAMILIAR GIRL waves back and approaches her, drink in hand.
MYSTERIOUS YET FAMILIAR GIRL:
Hey Rebecca(GGC)! Cheers!
Mysterious yet familiar girl clinks her plastic cup with GGC. GGC tries not to look confused.
GGCBut the truth was, GGC was dead sober. She bought the MYFG/BABYSITTER a free drink and pretended to pass out in the garnish tray.
It's good to see you again...um...you. I like your dress.
Thank you. So how have you been?
Great. You know, Archer and stuff... Life. Heh. And what about you?
You don't recognize me, do you?
I'm so sorry! I know the face, I just don't, um. WELL...I'm drunk.
I'm your babysitter. I babysit Archer.
Did I say I was drunk? I'm actually wasted. Trashed! Out-of-my-mind hammered.
I am a terrible mother. The worst. Just awful. I leave my child's life in the hands of people I can't even recognize in public. Shoot me, now. Like a lame horse. OH GAWD, just shoot me now...
