SCENE I
JUDITH McFARLAND: [ENTERING FROM THE ELEVATOR] Yello! Hot dish coming through. And she's carrying a casserole.
GRACE: Who's that?
WILL: Jack's mom.
JUDITH: Whew! 86 minutes. Not bad. Yeah.
WILL: Judith, you do realize that Thanksgiving is tomorrow.
JUDITH: I'm doing a dry run, Will. I wanted to see how long it would take me to get here while carrying a casserole dish. The other benefit of a dry run is that I power-walk the whole time while clenching my buttocks like so. You can't tell I'm doing anything, but my ass sure can. Oh.
GRACE: Like mother, like son.
WILL: Mm-hmm.
JUDITH: Ha ha ha. You must be Grace. Ha ha. Jack said you were sort of funny.
GRACE: Oh, yes. I--I am Grace. Jack said I was funny?
JUDITH: No, he said you were sort of funny. You're a cutie. I can see why Jack wooed you. Bet you made an adorable couple. [PRESSING THE ELEVATOR BUTTON] Come on, come on, come on!
GRACE: Uh... Wh-wh-whoa! Adorable couple? I...
JUDITH: Yeah. And I think it's terrific that you and Jack have stayed friends even after he dumped you. Bye-bye. [JUDITH EXITS INTO THE ELEVATOR]
GRACE: Dumped me? What are you talking about? Jack's a ho--my god, she has no idea!
SCENE II
WILL: The Russian Tea Room? Wow. You'd do that just to save us from the monster?
JACK: That's the kind of friend I am.
WILL: Yeah. I thought it might be because you haven't told your mother you're gay!
JACK: [GASPS] I don't know what you're talking about.
WILL: She came here yesterday, Jack.
JACK: Damn her and her dry runs!

Happy Thanksgiving, everyone!
