         (A woman of a certain age enters.  She is on a cell phone, very distracted)

Hello...hi....yeah......I have literally one minute.....what?  You want me to remember the name of the actor in what movie?  Are you kidding?  Why don't you look it up on the computer?

     (Listens, starts poking at the phone)

Okay, okay!  I got it!  It's the one with the actor with the big googly eyes, right?  I know that one!  He's got a son who's an actor.......

I've got it!

Harold something or was in the movie with the dance-y lady......Donald something or other!

I knew it!  And the woman who played the girl, she was oh, also with some googly eyes, and she had that hair around her shoulders, dark hair....oh, you know who that was!  Her name started with a G ...I am pretty sure.....

And the movie was about.......hold it.....

        (She stares at the phone)

No, that's not's not about England......oh, that was The Eye of the Needle, he was this movie he was just like....a zombie!  It was the Invasion of the Zombies.....


Invasion of the Body Snatchers.....I told you!  And look./......there's the girl!  I was right!  Brooke Adams!  Ok, maybe it wasn't a G, a B sounds like a G.....but that's her hair, am I right or what?  And she became a zombie, too...I think!  I knew I could remember it!  I can't remember what I walked into this room for, but I knew I'd remember it......

Yeah, I'd love to go see that movie with you!

        (Turns to leave, stops, looks back at the phone)

Wait, I never liked that movie!  I hated that movie! hated it, too?  We didn't not see it together?  Oh.....well, what about a new heard there's a great one?... it's with the guy Ellen had a massive crush on!..oh, wait.....I know that one!

         (She see a movie whose name she will forget tomorrow)
