Mr. Billings-Stevens: Wait. [bends and picks up an object] Is this [pause, dramatic musical cue, quick zoom] your pen? [holds up a pen]

Dr. Perkins: No. By the way, how was that cookout? Did you have any [pause, dramatic musical cue, quick zoom] fish?

Mr. Billings-Stevens: Well, as a matter of fact, we did have some [pause, dramatic musical cue, quick zoom] fish.

Dr. Perkins: Well, I’m sorry I missed [pause, dramatic musical cue, quick zoom] it.

Dr. Perkins: Well, that sounds nice. Did you ask Veronica?

Doctor: Oh, not yet; I’ll do that now.

Dr. Perkins: Well, great. Thanks a lot. [dramatic musical cue, quick zoom] [the doctor has nothing further to say]

Mr. Billings-Stevens: I love Applebee’s. So, anyway, be sure to tell your wife I said [pause, dramatic musical cue, quick zoom] hello.

Dr. Perkins: Why don’t you tell her? After all, she’s carrying your baby.

[no quick zoom occurs, so the doctor rushes up to the camera and then rushes back] [dissolve to backstage]
