Sahara Sunday Spain UNDER THE TABLE Two people are sitting at a table in a restaurant for lunch. The table has a cloth, and there might be a small flower arrangement or unlit candle in the center. FINN is a college student and is staring at his sister LILY. LILY is staring at her menu. They both seem to be on edge.

FINN Are you going to talk to me? Or did you just call me here to… stare at the menu. (pause) Lily. (pause) Lily. LILY doesn’t look up at him. FINN tries to get her attention. FINN (CONT.) Great zombie impression. But you asked me to come here, and I could be somewhere else. LILY Hmm? FINN What’s going on? LILY It’s complicated… FINN Uncomplicate it. LILY doesn’t respond. FINN (CONT.) It’s easy. You say “Finn, I am sad and I called you because of blank.” and then you fill in the blank. 20
