P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Hello and welcome to Episode 3 of The Passionate & The Privileged! Let’s recap what happened last week on P & P…

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Lyle was forced to find a new nanny at short notice, because his wife fired their old one for sleeping with the gardener on the job.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
He offered the nanny position to the very beautiful Brynn Leveque, by recommendation. Of course he had no idea she was a Logan...

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Brynn worried about them finding out her real name, but was convinced by her brother Arthur to take the job anyway.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Brynn arrived at the Randolph residence for her first day on the job only to have the door slammed in her face by a furious Simone.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Assured by Lyle that Brynn was not his secret lover, Simone reluctantly agreed to keep Brynn on for one week...

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
After all, they had to make it to Lydia’s dinner party that night.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Oh, and who was that handsome stranger Simone nearly ran over with her car?

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Let’s find out more in Episode 3…


P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
We open inside the glorious RANDOLPH ESTATE where guests enjoy pre-dinner cocktails in the lavishly furnished living room.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Champagne is being served as SENATOR ADAMS, late 60’s, arrives. Lydia stamps out her lit cigarette.


Senator Adams pandpsenator
@pandplydia Lydia. You look stunning. How is it you never age?

Lydia Randolph pandplydia
@pandpsenator A glass of milk before bed and a lifetime of lovemaking.

Senator Adams pandpsenator
@pandplydia Oh, that is quite a diet.

Lydia Randolph pandplydia
@pandpsenator *grabs his arm* Come meet my daughter. Meta darling?

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Lydia’s daughter, META RANDOLPH, early 40s, stands in profile. She is attractive at first glance...

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Until she turns, revealing a MASSIVE DARK MOLE erupting from the right side of her petit nose. Even Aaron Neville would be shocked.

Lydia Randolph pandplydia
Meta, this is Senator Adams.


Meta Randolph pandpmeta
Great to finally meet you and congratulations on your re-election. What is this, your fourth term?

Senator Adams pandpsenator
@pandpmeta *stares at mole* Yes. I mean, no! My fifth and I’ve enjoyed every day serving the people of this great state.

Lydia Randolph pandplydia
Meta is my second eldest and quite the world wide web entrepreneur.

Meta Randolph pandpmeta
@pandplydia No one calls it that anymore, Mother.

Meta Randolph pandpmeta
@pandpsenator I own several internet start ups.

Lydia Randolph pandplydia
None of which have made a dime, but dammit, she perseveres!

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Meta glares at Lydia and takes a long gulp of her cocktail.

Lydia Randolph pandplydia
I prefer to stay away from those terrible machines myself. Someday they’re going to grow skin and start rounding us all up.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Simone and Lyle enter the living room. Simone looks ravishing.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Lydia’s youngest son and Lyle’s brother TIMOTHY JAMES (T.J.) greets them. He’s impeccably dressed. He hugs Simone.

T.J. Randolph pandptj
@pandpSimone How’s my favorite prize orchid owner?

Simone Randolph pandpSimone
@pandptj Oh, you know. Staying active, raising Max... smiling through my tears.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
They laugh together. Lyle doesn’t look amused.

T.J. Randolph pandptj
I think uptighty over here needs a drink.

Lyle Randolph pandplyle
@pandptj Nice to see you too, little brother.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Lyle walks over to the bar. T.J. leans in.

T.J. Randolph pandptj
@pandpSimone How are you really, Simone?

Simone Randolph pandpSimone
@pandptj I’m great! I’m good. I’m... *exhales* I don’t know how I am.

T.J. Randolph pandptj
@pandpSimone How’s the... you know...

Simone Randolph pandpSimone
@pandptj The same. We either can’t find the time or we’re too tired or... I don’t know. It’s like...

Simone Randolph pandpSimone
@pandptj ...something’s missing but I don’t know what.

T.J. Randolph pandptj
@pandpSimone Have you talked about it?

Simone Randolph pandpSimone
@pandptj Of course we don’t talk about it. That would be the well adjusted thing to do.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Lyle returns with a drink. T.J. changes the subject.

T.J. Randolph pandptj
@pandpSimone Well, you look amazing! What is that dress, Dior?

Simone Randolph pandpSimone
@pandptj Bravo! Someone knows his designers.

T.J. Randolph pandptj
@pandpSimone I credit that to Addie. I should buy stock in Bergdorfs.

Simone Randolph pandpSimone
@pandptj Speaking of your lovely fiancé, have you set a date? I’d love an excuse to take a little 5th Avenue field trip.

T.J. Randolph pandptj
@pandpSimone Not yet, I’ve been up to my ass in alligators with a new exhibition. Turns out the artist is the real piece of work.

T.J. Randolph pandptj

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
We cut to MAX’s ROOM in the RANDOLPH HOUSE. Max and Brynn sit cross-legged on his floor. He arranges numbered blocks in piles...

Max Randolph pandpmax
@pandpBrynn The yellow ones always make more than the red ones cause I’m missing the red seven.

Brynn Logan pandpBrynn
@pandpmax How about you tell me a story about them?


Brynn Logan pandpBrynn
@pandpmax Sure. You can make a story out of anything.

Brynn Logan pandpBrynn
@pandpmax So, let’s pretend all these yellow blocks are... explorers. And these red ones are... pirates. ARG!

Max Randolph pandpmax
*holds up a red block* Jack Sparrow!

Brynn Logan pandpBrynn
@pandpmax That’s right! Now... tell me a story about how the red seven went missing.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Meanwhile... back at the LYDIA'S PARTY… Everyone is seated as the first course is served.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Lydia sits at the head of the table. An EMPTY PLACE is set to her right. Senator Adams is seated next to Lyle.

Senator Adams pandpsenator
@pandplyle *whispers* Are we missing a guest?

Lyle Randolph pandplyle
@pandpsenator My mother always sets a place for my sister Rosalee. She’s no longer with us.

Senator Adams pandpsenator
@pandplyle Of course, my apologies. I just saw the empty chair and...

Lyle Randolph pandplyle
@pandpsenator No apology necessary. I find the tradition a bit offputting myself. But it comforts her, so we all go along.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Lydia stands up. Taps a spoon on her glass.

Lydia Randolph pandplydia
Thank you all for coming. The Hunston Herald is in its 236th glorious year with the Randolph name behind it for nearly two centuries.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Lyle notices META IS TEXTING at the table.

Lyle Randolph pandplyle
@pandpmeta *whispers* Meta. Meta...

Lydia Randolph pandplydia
Together we will continue to serve as the anchor of Hunston Hill...


P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Lydia stops and shoots daggers at Meta.

Lyle Randolph pandplyle
@pandpmeta Mother’s making a speech.

Meta Randolph pandpmeta
*shuts her phone* Sorry. *chugs her drink*

Lydia Randolph pandplydia
Where was I? Oh yes, in the words of Napoleon... four hostile newspapers are more to be feared than a thousand bayonets! Dinner is served!

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Outside the LOGAN MANOR that night the handsome hitchhiker, JACE, walks up to the door. He checks a printout from GOOGLE EARTH...

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Satisfied, he rings the bell a few times. Waits. He knocks. Nothing. Knocks again loudly. A dog barks in the distance.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Meanwhile, back inside at the LYDIA'S PARTY… The staff swirls around, serving quail and sweet potato mash.

Lyle Randolph pandplyle
@pandpsenator Senator, I don’t believe you’ve been properly introduced to my wife, Simone.

Senator Adams pandpsenator
No, but how could I not notice the loveliest woman in the room *kisses Simone’s hand*.

Simone Randolph pandpSimone

Lydia Randolph pandplydia
Oh, Simone is an angel. I always say, my son is the luckiest man in the world!

Lydia Randolph pandplydia
@pandpSimone How is that Ghost Orchid you spend so much time tending to, dear?

Simone Randolph pandpSimone

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Meta flags down a server.

Meta Randolph pandpmeta
Macallan and soda, rocks.

Lydia Randolph pandplydia
I suspect it’s not the only thing that needs drying out.

Lyle Randolph pandplyle
@pandpsenator I heard the stimulus broadband grant came through last week. Well done.

Senator Adams pandpsenator
@pandplyle 5.5 million courtesy of the USDA.

Lyle Randolph pandplyle
@pandpsenator *low voice* Senator, I’m hoping you might indulge me in a private meeting.


Lyle Randolph pandplyle
@pandpsenator Broadband service in Greater Hunston County will mean quite a change.

Lyle Randolph pandplyle
@pandpsenator I believe Randolph Media Group needs to stay ahead of that change.

Senator Adams pandpsenator
@pandplyle My scheduler will give you a call.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Later, inside the RANDOLPH HOUSE, Brynn tucks Max into bed and turns out his light.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
As she walks down the stairs, her cell phone vibrates. It’s Arthur.

Brynn Logan pandpBrynn
@pandparthur They should be back within the hour.

Arthur Logan pandparthur
@pandpBrynn Where were you?! Someone’s been at our door!

Brynn Logan pandpBrynn
@pandparthur What? I was putting Max to bed. How do you know?

Arthur Logan pandparthur
@pandpBrynn The bell’s rung 3 or 4 times, I think I heard some knocking too.

Arthur Logan pandparthur
@pandpBrynn Oh, God, my hearts about to explode... *coughs* I’m freaking out... *coughs*


P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Coming up THURSDAY MARCH 17th on P & P…

Brynn Logan pandpBrynn
@pandpmax I’m going to take you to school today, is that okay?


Brynn Logan pandpBrynn
@pandpmax Is there anything special you’d like to do when you get home?

Max Randolph pandpmax
@pandpBrynn You’ll be too busy feeding Kitty.


Max Randolph pandpmax
@pandpBrynn Our dog. Mommy let me name her. She’s been sick.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Simone enters wearing a stylish outfit. She ignores Brynn, focusing instead on the vase of wild flowers.

Simone Randolph pandpSimone
Where did these come from?

Brynn Logan pandpBrynn
@pandpSimone *smiles* I brought them. I know you love flowers and I thought...

Simone Randolph pandpSimone
@pandpBrynn Well, they’re hideous.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Thanks for watching! Join us again on THURSDAY MARCH 17th!
