SCENE 6: SYLVIA TALKS TO TEDDY

EXT. ROOFTOP LAUNDRY AREA-NIGHT

Teddy's all wet and covered in suds as he washed the clothes. Sylvia sat next to him, and starts to help him with the laundry.

SYLVIA

What are you doing here? It's very

late, why are you washing the

clothes in the middle of the

night?

TEDDY

Can't sleep. Plus I need to

finish this.

SYLVIA

You seem to be a little off earlier

tonight, is everything ok?

TEDDY

It's ok mom. Just

go back to sleep. I'll finish

this.

SYLVIA

If you need to talk about anything

you know you can always

talk to me.

TEDDY

Thanks mom.

SYLVIA

Teddy, you need to take care

of yourself. Did somebody tease you

today? Those are college kids

they will always tease.

If they call you Laundry Teddy.

Big deal. There's nothing wrong

with being Laundry Teddy,

as long as it's not Laundry Sylvia

(smiles) Sometimes in life, you just

have to tough it out.

TEDDY

For how long?

SYLVIA

As long as it takes until it

no longer hurts.  Believe me, they'll

get tired of teasing you.

It might be funny to see a 40

year old guy going around

school with laundry bags. But

that guy is a good son.

And his mother is damn proud of him.

TEDDY

Mom, do you need anything?

SYLVIA

Not much really, just you.
