An all new P&P will begin shortly!

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Hello and welcome to Episode 14 of the Passionate & The Privileged! Previously on P&P…

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Rattled by a vivid dream about Brynn, Simone made plans to reconnect with her husband Lyle.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Lyle chose to tend to his mother instead, who was freaking out over a letter from a Wisconsin attorney about the Logans.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
TJ recognized Jace in the Hunston Hill Beanery, but he thought it was Arthur.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Arthur pointed out that Brynn might want more than a friendship with Simone. Brynn denied it, but the seed may already be sown.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
EPISODE 14 - "LUCK BE A LADY"

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Brynn cheerfully walks up the long Randolph driveway carrying a Styrofoam tray of COFFEES.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
She pauses, closes her eyes and lets the morning sunlight hit her face.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Inside the Randolph house, Simone lies awake, her back to Lyle. She feels him snuggle behind her. She quickly closes her eyes.

Lyle Randolph pandplyle

Simone Randolph pandpSimone

Lyle Randolph pandplyle
@pandpSimone I’m sorry about last night.

Simone Randolph pandpSimone
@pandplyle You did what you had to do.

Simone Randolph pandpSimone
@pandplyle *goes to get up* Rodolpho’s off today. I’ll make coffee.

Lyle Randolph pandplyle
@pandpSimone *pulls Simone back* Wait. I keep thinking about you. In that sexy thing...

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Lyle leans in and kisses Simone. After, she looks away.

Simone Randolph pandpSimone
@pandplyle I’m glad you liked it. Agent Provocateur. $900 retail.

Lyle Randolph pandplyle
@pandpSimone I’m not thinking about the price, I’m thinking about who was wearing it.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Lyle pulls Simone close and starts kissing her neck. Simone closes her eyes, disinterested. Lyle begs.

Lyle Randolph pandplyle
@pandpSimone I said I was sorry... c’mon, give me a rain check... please... do you feel that? Don’t leave me like this...

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Simone rolls her eyes and lies back down.

Simone Randolph pandpSimone
@pandplyle Just make it quick, darling. Like I know you can.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
In the Randolph driveway... Brynn picks up one of Max’s toys on her way up the steps and enters the Randolph House.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Brynn walks into the kitchen, humming. The front door swings closed behind her...

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
As Lyle makes love to Simone, we hear the front door close with a LOUD BANG.

Simone Randolph pandpSimone
*alarmed* Brynn’s here!


Simone Randolph pandpSimone
@pandplyle *pushes him* Get up, get up! I don’t want her seeing...

Lyle Randolph pandplyle
@pandpSimone Oh, Simone... I’m so close... I’m almost there...

Simone Randolph pandpSimone
@pandplyle Then hurry up and GET THERE. Or you’ll have to finish yourself!

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Moments later, in the Randolph Kitchen, Brynn sets out the coffees and arranges fresh cut flowers in a vase.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Simone enters, wearing her robe. Brynn smiles warmly.

Brynn Logan pandpBrynn
@pandpSimone And who’s in her robe this morning?

Simone Randolph pandpSimone
@pandpBrynn Yes, well, Lyle needed to sleep in. Oh, you stopped by the Beanery!

Brynn Logan pandpBrynn
@pandpSimone Rodolpho’s off, isn’t he?

Simone Randolph pandpSimone
@pandpBrynn You remembered. Brynn...

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Simone hugs Brynn tightly for a long beat. She finally lets go, softly touching Brynn’s face.

Simone Randolph pandpSimone
@pandpBrynn It’s just absurd how pretty you are. Any time of the day.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Brynn feels herself blushing. She turns away, struggling to push the conversation with Arthur out of her mind.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Lyle walks in, dressed for work. A spring in his step.

Lyle Randolph pandplyle
Good morning ladies!

Brynn Logan pandpBrynn
@pandplyle Morning Lyle. How was D.C.?

Lyle Randolph pandplyle
Very productive. @pandpBrynn Brynn, I’m sorry about the little misunderstanding we had before I left...

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Lyle grabs the paper. Brynn hands him a coffee.

Brynn Logan pandpBrynn
@pandplyle Don’t give it a second thought.

Lyle Randolph pandplyle
Well, I should have checked.

Lyle Randolph pandplyle
Oh, and thanks for going to T.J.’s gala on such short notice. My wife tells me you were the best date she’s ever had.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator

Brynn Logan pandpBrynn

Lyle Randolph pandplyle
*looks at his watch* Damn. I have to jet.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Lyle stops and gives Simone a long lingering kiss on the lips. Brynn looks down. As he walks out...

Lyle Randolph pandplyle
I’m going to grab dinner at the office tonight. Why don’t you girls have dinner out on me? I’ll pick up Max from Mother’s on my way home.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
At HUNSTON HILL ACADEMY, Max sits in uniform at his desk. Unlike his classmates who appear older, Max’s feet barely touch the ground.

Mr. Gross pandpteacher
And so, who can tell me the roman numeral for... *writes on the board* 1802.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Max shoots his hand up. A large boy next to him snickers.


Max Randolph pandpmax
*loudly* M-D-C-C-C-I-I

Mr. Gross pandpteacher
Excellent! *writes on board* Because C is equal to 100.

Large Boy pandplargeboy
@pandpmax *whispers to Max* C is equal to Cocksucker...

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
The large boy pushes his cheek out with his tongue and makes a jerky motion with his hand. The kids laugh. Max looks down at his desk.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
LATER at THE FEDERALIST - Hunston Hill’s fine dining restaurant is packed with the city’s wealthiest residents, a line curls out the door.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Brynn sits in the giant center booth alone. A sea of designer dresses parade past.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
She looks down at her off the rack summer dress, feeling out of place.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
A murmur ripples through the restaurant as Simone finally glides through the door. The owner motions for a waiter.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Simone scoots in the booth close to Brynn.

Simone Randolph pandpSimone
@pandpBrynn I’m sorry I’m late. Have you been waiting long?

Brynn Logan pandpBrynn
@pandpSimone Just a few minutes. I had no idea about the dress code.

Simone Randolph pandpSimone
@pandpBrynn Don’t worry about that. You’re with me.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Simone squeezes Brynn’s hand under the table. Brynn relaxes. A waiter sets down two glasses of champagne.

Waiter pandpwaiter
@pandpSimone Will you be having the usual Mrs. Randolph?

Simone Randolph pandpSimone
You don’t mind if I order for you? *off Brynn’s nod*

Simone Randolph pandpSimone

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
The waiter leaves. Simone looks at Brynn with a twinkle in her eye.

Simone Randolph pandpSimone
@pandpBrynn Guess why I was late?

Brynn Logan pandpBrynn
@pandpSimone Your mother-in-law needed you to pick up cigarettes?

Simone Randolph pandpSimone
@pandpBrynn *laughs* I was pulled over by the police. For speeding!

Brynn Logan pandpBrynn
@pandpSimone NO. Did you get a ticket?

Simone Randolph pandpSimone
@pandpBrynn Of course not! Randolphs don’t get tickets. They get badge numbers.

Simone Randolph pandpSimone
@pandpBrynn Anyway, I was speeding because I was coming back from Bridgeport.

Brynn Logan pandpBrynn
@pandpSimone What were you doing in Bridgeport?

Simone Randolph pandpSimone
@pandpBrynn Picking up this. For you.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Simone sets a tiny wrapped box on the table.


Simone Randolph pandpSimone
@pandpBrynn It’s nothing. You know how I like to shop. I saw it and I thought of you.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Brynn stares at the little box without opening it.

Simone Randolph pandpSimone
@pandpBrynn Please don’t tell me you have a phobia of small boxes.

Brynn Logan pandpBrynn
@pandpSimone *laughs* I was just trying to remember the last time someone gave me a gift.

Simone Randolph pandpSimone
@pandpBrynn Well, it won’t be your last from me. So go ahead.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Brynn undoes the ribbon and opens the tiny box. Inside is a simple necklace with a tiny platinum FOUR LEAF CLOVER.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Brynn nearly passes out seeing a symbol so closely associated with the LOGAN FAMILY.

Simone Randolph pandpSimone

Brynn Logan pandpBrynn
@pandpSimone *recovers* Yes, yes. I love it.

Simone Randolph pandpSimone
@pandpBrynn It’s a symbol of luck. And I guess that’s what you are to me.

Simone Randolph pandpSimone
@pandpBrynn For most of my life I’ve already had everything I wanted. Or felt entitled to it.

Simone Randolph pandpSimone
@pandpBrynn So I never really had that feeling of being lucky. Until I met you, of course.

Brynn Logan pandpBrynn
@pandpSimone I don’t know what to say.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Brynn looks at Simone and her heart swells. She’s in trouble and she knows it. She leans in and hugs Simone.

Brynn Logan pandpBrynn
@pandpSimone Thank you. For thinking of me...

Simone Randolph pandpSimone
@pandpBrynn *whispers* It’s impossible not to.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
FLASHBACK to 1994: We are on the HUNSTON HILL ACADEMY football field...

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
A FOOTBALL COACH blows his whistle loudly. Eleven players in uniform slam into each other as the quarterback launches the ball long.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
ON THE BLEACHERS A LONE TEENAGER sits doing homework. The FOOTBALL tumbles into view a few feet away.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Seconds later a BEEFY FOOTBALL PLAYER runs up to fetch the ball. The teenager looks up.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
IT’S JACE. No, wait a minute. IT’S ARTHUR! He’s lean and handsome, wearing his school uniform jacket and tie.

Beefy Player pandpfootball1
@pandparthur What are you looking at?

Arthur Logan pandparthur
@pandpfootball1 *sarcastic* Nothing. Clearly.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Another player trots up.

Skinny Player pandpfootball2
@pandparthur What are you doing here, Logan scum?

Beefy Player pandpfootball1
@pandpfootball2 C’mon man, don’t you know? He’s looking at us. He wants to see some big sweaty dicks.


P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Arthur looks down, silent.

Skinny Player pandpfootball2

Beefy Player pandpfootball1
*grabs his crotch* Is this what you want?

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
The players walk up to Arthur menacingly. He bravely closes his book and waits for the inevitable. Suddenly...

T.J. Randolph pandptj
HEY! Give me the ball assholes!

Beefy Player pandpfootball1
@pandptj Sorry.*tosses the ball* We were taking care of a little PROBLEM.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
The quarterback PULLS OFF HIS HELMET. It’s T.J. RANDOLPH. Homecoming King, drop dead gorgeous... and looking right at Arthur.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Arthur looks away, humiliated.

Skinny Player pandpfootball2
Yeah, we’re telling him he needs to move his gay ass to queersville. *in Arthur’s face* We don’t want you here.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
The Skinny Player swats Arthur’s BOOKS off the bleachers. They scatter. He goes in for a swing.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
In a flash, T.J. pulls the Skinny Player away from Arthur, sending him flying into the dirt.

T.J. Randolph pandptj
Not on my team! KNOCK IT OFF!

T.J. Randolph pandptj
@pandpfootball1 What the hell is wrong with you, man?

Beefy Player pandpfootball1
He likes dudes.

T.J. Randolph pandptj
@pandpfootball1 What are you, five? We’ve got playoffs on Saturday and you’re wasting my time with this shit?

T.J. Randolph pandptj
Get back on the field and get your stupid heads back in the game!

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
The two players glare at Arthur and trot off. T.J. picks Arthur’s books up, dusts them off and hands them back.

T.J. Randolph pandptj
@pandparthur I’m sorry, those guys can be real assholes. You okay?

Arthur Logan pandparthur
@pandptj *flustered* Yeah. I plan on putting all this in my autobiography someday…

Arthur Logan pandparthur
@pandptj When I’m running the world and they’re working at Red Lobster. So it’s actually a good thing.

T.J. Randolph pandptj
@pandparthur *laughs* That sounds about right. I’m T.J. by the way.

Arthur Logan pandparthur
@pandptj Please. I know who you are.

T.J. Randolph pandptj
@pandparthur Yeah, I know who you are too.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
T.J.’s eyes pierce into Arthur.

Arthur Logan pandparthur
@pandptj Our families don’t like each other so much.

T.J. Randolph pandptj
@pandparthur Nope. But history doesn’t always have to repeat itself...

T.J. Randolph pandptj
@pandparthur Anyway, I’d better head back. Nice meeting you, Arthur.

Arthur Logan pandparthur
@pandptj You too… *shouts* and thanks!

Nurse pandpnurse
@pandptj Thanks. You can get dressed now. Mr. Randolph? MR. RANDOLPH?

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
TO BE CONTINUED...

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Coming up on TUESDAY APRIL 26th on P & P…

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
In SAKS FIFTH AVENUE, Simone flips over a tag reading $1900. She nods to a salesgirl who adds the dress to a PILE on the counter.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
From behind Simone...

Meta Randolph pandpmeta
@pandpSimone Shopping binge? I thought you’d gotten help for that.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Simone whips around to face Meta Randolph.

Simone Randolph pandpSimone
@pandpmeta Leave me alone. I’m trying to keep my sanity.

Meta Randolph pandpmeta
@pandpSimone My brother’s being himself again?

Simone Randolph pandpSimone
@pandpmeta NO, this has nothing to do with him for once. Actually I suppose it does, but ANYWAY, I can’t talk about it.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Meanwhile, in DR. BISHOP’S OFFICE...

Dr. James Bishop pandpdrbishop
@pandptj T.J. Can I ask you a favor?

T.J. Randolph pandptj

Dr. James Bishop pandpdrbishop
@pandptj Your sister-in-law, Simone? She brought a friend to your event.

T.J. Randolph pandptj
@pandpdrbishop Ah, Brynn Leveque. She’s their new nanny.

Dr. James Bishop pandpdrbishop
@pandptj *smiles* A nanny. And she’s single, right?

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
And later… Brynn touches the necklace Simone gave her that she now wears.

Brynn Logan pandpBrynn
@pandpSimone I should go. Thank you again for my beautiful clover. And for being...

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Electricity fills the air. Brynn slowly leans in and kisses Simone gently... on the cheek. Simone closes her eyes.

Brynn Logan pandpBrynn

Simone Randolph pandpSimone
@pandpBrynn Yes, we’re good friends. I don’t think I’ve ever had a good friend.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Thank you for watching! We'll see you TUESDAY APRIL 26th as things heat up on The Passionate & The Privileged!
