And I’m not giving you money… And I’m not buying you cigarettes… And you can’t borrow my car.

FINN You’re pregnant. LILY Don’t be stupid. If I were pregnant, you’d be the last person I’d go to for snuggles. I have friends. And I wasn’t going to ask for money. And I never…I don’t even like your car. And—(I don’t smoke) FINN Lily. LILY What? FINN Talk. LILY Dad’s cheating on Mom. (beat) Finn. (beat) Finn? FINN I don’t believe you.
