Raleigh: You have a visitor, my darling.
Margot: Margot answers without opening the door: Who is it?.
Etheline: It's me sweetie.
[Silence. A key slides from under the door to Etheline's feet. Etheline looks to Raleigh. Raleigh looks embarrassed.
INT. BATHROOM. DAY.
Margot is in the bathtub watching Planet of the Apes on her little black-and-white television set. Etheline sits on the edge of the tub with her coat in her lap.]
Etheline: Raleigh says you've been spending six hours a day locked up in here watching television and soaking in the tub.
Margot: (pause) I doubt that.
Etheline: Well, I don't think that's very healthy, do you? Nor do I think it's very intelligent to keep an electric gadget on the edge of the bathtub.
Margot: I tied it to the radiator.
[Etheline examines the television set. There is a length of red twine wrapped around it and knotted to a pipe.]
Etheline: Well, it can't be very good for your eyes.
[Margot turns off the television set with her foot. She looks to Etheline. Etheline smooths back Margot's wet hair.]
Etheline: Chas came home.
Margot: (pause) What do you mean?
Etheline: He and Ari and Uzi are gonna stay with me for a little while.
Margot: (frowns) Why are they allowed to do that?
Etheline: (hesitates) Well, I don't know exactly, but I think he's been very depressed.
Margot: (urgently) So am I.
Etheline: (pause) So are you what?
