P&P LIVE STREAM will begin shortly!

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Hello and welcome to Episode 20 of the Passionate & The Privileged! Previously on P&P…

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Max has been having a tough time at school. His mathematical brilliance seems no match for the calculated bullying he is suffering.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Things between Lyle & Simone have been tense. Once immune to their marital conflict, Simone is starting to feel it.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Lyle asked Brynn for permission to pass on her number to Dr. Bishop, who has made it no secret he is interested in Brynn.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Of course, Lyle asked this in front of Simone, and the moment he left the house, Simone flew into a jealous rage. Brynn snapped back.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
At the height of their frustration they ended up in the pantry… where they started fighting a different kind of battle.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Episode 20 “The Heart Grows Fonder
8xz

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Inside the Randolph Pantry... Brynn finds herself silently walking forward until their bodies touch.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Without a word, Brynn runs her hands around Simone’s waist and presses into her. Simone lets out a little gasp.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Within seconds the sparks they’ve been dousing all day grow into a raging fire.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Meanwhile at HUNSTON HILL ACADEMY... Max walks in uniform down the hall carrying his backpack. Suddenly from behind him:

Large Boy pandplargeboy
@pandpmax *yells* Hey, Max, I wanna talk to you!

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Max knows that voice. He looks down, terrified. The large boy walks faster. Max breaks into a run.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Max bursts through the front doors, turns and sees the boy is no longer behind him...

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Unfortunately, that’s because he’s in front of him! Max smacks into the giant kid, sending his backpack flying.

Large Boy pandplargeboy
@pandpmax *menacing* I told you to stop.

Max Randolph pandpmax
*scared* Leave me ALONE!

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
The large boy picks up Max’s backpack. Beat. He frowns and hands it to Max. Stares at the ground.

Large Boy pandplargeboy
@pandpmax *reluctantly* So... you wanna to come to my Birthday Party this weekend?


Large Boy pandplargeboy
@pandpmax I said, do you want to come to my BIRTHDAY PARTY?

Max Randolph pandpmax

Large Boy pandplargeboy
@pandpmax *desperate* Please? You gotta come. If you don’t I’ll be grounded till like High School!

Large Boy pandplargeboy
@pandpmax *voice quivers* And my dad will lose his job.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Meanwhile, cans have flown off shelves as the fire rages on in the Randolph pantry. Brynn moves down and starts kissing Simone’s neck...

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Brynn’s kisses are so strangely soft that Simone struggles to breathe. It’s all she can do to hang on... until she can’t take it anymore...

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Suddenly Simone is unbuttoning her blouse and taking way too long.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Brynn impatiently pushes Simone’s hands away and quickly unbuttons it herself.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Her hands are seconds from Simone’s bare skin...

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
When the tiny voice in her head screaming at her finally gets through.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Brynn stops, leaving them both panting.

Simone Randolph pandpSimone

Brynn Logan pandpBrynn
@pandpSimone No. We can’t... not like this.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Brynn steps back, desperately trying to clear her head. Finally:

Brynn Logan pandpBrynn
@pandpSimone How are we going to do this?

Simone Randolph pandpSimone

Brynn Logan pandpBrynn
@pandpSimone We couldn’t even get through one day!

Simone Randolph pandpSimone
@pandpBrynn *buttons her blouse* I know. So we’re just going to have to try harder. I’ll take responsibility for this particular incident.

Brynn Logan pandpBrynn
@pandpSimone I don’t know how many I can take.

Simone Randolph pandpSimone
@pandpBrynn Maybe we could agree on some sort of Pavlovian code word.

Brynn Logan pandpBrynn
@pandpSimone Please tell me you’re kidding.

Simone Randolph pandpSimone
@pandpBrynn *smiles* Brynn, we can get through this. We’re both very strong. It’s just going to take some time.

Simone Randolph pandpSimone
@pandpBrynn *reluctantly* And maybe some space.

Brynn Logan pandpBrynn

Simone Randolph pandpSimone
@pandpBrynn Of course not. But it’s almost the weekend. As much as it pains me to suggest it...

Simone Randolph pandpSimone
@pandpBrynn Why don’t you take the rest of the week off and come back on Monday.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
The next morning, in Simone’s bedroom... the room is dark and silent. The LOUD BUZZ of Simone’s alarm clock goes off.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
We see Simone’s silhouette as she rises and turns it off. Lyle murmurs from his side.

Lyle Randolph pandplyle
@pandpSimone Why are you up so early?

Simone Randolph pandpSimone
@pandplyle *mumbles* Brynn has the day off.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Simone crosses into the bathroom and flips on the light.

Lyle Randolph pandplyle
@pandpSimone Really? Are we paying her?

Simone Randolph pandpSimone
@pandplyle *annoyed* Yes, Lyle, we are.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Later in the RANDOLPH KITCHEN...

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
The sun rises through the kitchen window. Simone sits at the table alone. Her list is blank. She gazes out the window.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Max shuffles in wearing Pirates of the Caribbean P.J.’s.

Max Randolph pandpmax

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Simone snaps out of her trance and rises to make breakfast. Max pulls himself up onto a kitchen chair and waits.

Simone Randolph pandpSimone
@pandpmax She’s taking a little vacation, darling. Daddy’s driving you today.

Max Randolph pandpmax
@pandpSimone Wow. Where’d she go on vacation?

Simone Randolph pandpSimone
@pandpmax *pours cereal* I don’t know.

Max Randolph pandpmax
@pandpSimone I think she’d like Pawis. I’d take her there.

Simone Randolph pandpSimone

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Simone sets cereal and a glass of juice in front of Max. She watches him eat, relieved for the company.

Max Randolph pandpmax
@pandpSimone Yep. She’d love it. We could ride the boats AND she wouldn’t be scared to go on that giant Fewis wheel like you.

Simone Randolph pandpSimone
@pandpmax I wasn’t scared, Max.

Max Randolph pandpmax
@pandpSimone Uh, yeah, you were. You said it was for your hair but you were scared.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Before Simone can respond, Lyle enters dressed for work, cursing at his blackberry.

Lyle Randolph pandplyle
@pandpSimone Son of a... Senator Adams needs to reschedule our Monday meeting!

Lyle Randolph pandplyle
@pandpSimone He’s leaving town Sunday now. I’m going to have to meet him tonight.

Simone Randolph pandpSimone
@pandplyle *tense* You’re taking me out, Lyle. Reschedule over the weekend.

Lyle Randolph pandplyle
@pandpSimone I told you, Mother’s called a family meeting.

Simone Randolph pandpSimone

Lyle Randolph pandplyle

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Simone feels herself on the verge.

Simone Randolph pandpSimone
@pandpmax Max? Why don’t you...

Max Randolph pandpmax
Yeah, yeah. I’ll go get dwessed.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Max pushes his cereal bowl away and stomps out of the kitchen. Simone becomes enraged.

Simone Randolph pandpSimone
@pandplyle How NICE. Max is so used to us fighting he’s excusing HIMSELF!

Lyle Randolph pandplyle
@pandpSimone And that’s my fault?

Simone Randolph pandpSimone
@pandplyle You’re saying it’s mine?

Lyle Randolph pandplyle
@pandpSimone You make such a big deal out of every little thing, Simone. It’s ONE NIGHT. I’ll take you out next week.

Simone Randolph pandpSimone
@pandplyle I might not be available next week!

Lyle Randolph pandplyle
@pandpSimone *laughs* Oh, right, I’m sure your schedule’s jam packed because you have SO many friends. Please!

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Simone stands with her mouth hanging open. Lyle checks his watch.

Lyle Randolph pandplyle
@pandpSimone I’ve got to get Max going. Just pick a night and we’ll go. Geez.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Lyle leaves and jogs up the stairs. Simone feels a tidal-wave of emotion coming on.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
She grabs her cell phone off the counter as the first tears start to flow.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
She frantically pulls up Brynn’s number and presses the button to connect.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
In BRYNN’S ROOM at the LOGAN MANOR... Brynn sleeps. Her cell phone buzzes on the nightstand.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Her eyes open, she fumbles for it and sees Simone’s number on the caller ID. She flops back on the bed and answers.


Simone Randolph pandpSimone

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Brynn waits. Simone just sniffs on the other line.


Simone Randolph pandpSimone
@pandpBrynn No. Not really. Lyle and I...we just had a terrible morning and I don’t know, I needed to... *sobs* Hear your voice I guess.

Brynn Logan pandpBrynn
@pandpSimone *soothing* Oh... okay... okay...

Simone Randolph pandpSimone
@pandpBrynn I know I shouldn’t be calling, please don’t be mad...

Brynn Logan pandpBrynn
@pandpSimone Of course I’m not mad.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Relief washes over Simone’s voice.

Simone Randolph pandpSimone
@pandpBrynn Thank you, thank you... I wasn’t sure.

Brynn Logan pandpBrynn
@pandpSimone Do you want to talk about it?

Simone Randolph pandpSimone
@pandpBrynn *cries* No, I think that might make it worse.

Brynn Logan pandpBrynn
@pandpSimone Just breathe, okay? Take a deep breath and blow it out slowly. For me.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Simone does as she’s told. After she exhales, she seems to start calming down.

Simone Randolph pandpSimone


Simone Randolph pandpSimone
@pandpBrynn Oh, Brynn, I really thought I was going to lose it.

Brynn Logan pandpBrynn
@pandpSimone No. Simone Randolph doesn’t lose it.

Simone Randolph pandpSimone
@pandpBrynn *laughs and sniffs* She does over her son’s beautiful nanny but other than that...

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Brynn’s heart skips a beat.


Simone Randolph pandpSimone
@pandpBrynn I know, I’m sorry. I take it back.

Brynn Logan pandpBrynn
@pandpSimone You can’t. I’m keeping it.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
We can almost hear Simone smiling on the other end.

Simone Randolph pandpSimone
@pandpBrynn Thank you for picking up. I don’t know what I would have done...

Brynn Logan pandpBrynn
@pandpSimone I’m here. Whenever you need me. You don’t even have to call, just know that, okay?


Brynn Logan pandpBrynn
@pandpSimone I’m hanging up now because it seems like the adult thing to do.

Simone Randolph pandpSimone
@pandpBrynn *laughs* And I’m off to buy a case of champagne at Creston’s. Hopefully when I wake up, it will be Monday.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
That night, in SIMONE’S BEDROOM...

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Simone sits alone in bed with her Kindle. A glass of champagne on her nightstand, next to a half empty bottle.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
She scrolls through the Kindle Store, bored. Suddenly she stops. Beat. She hesitantly types into the search box:

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Simone stares at the word. Then bravely clicks.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
A book cover pops up, in giant letters: “TOP LESBIAN SEX TIPS, TRICKS AND TECHNIQUES”


P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Simone frantically pushes the OFF button, traumatized. Grabs her cell and scrolls through her contacts until she finds BRYNN LEVEQUE.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Simone touches the screen and takes a deep breath. Exhales. Hugs the phone to her chest and turns out the light.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
The next morning in SIMONE’S GREENHOUSE... Simone wears garden gloves, furiously scrubbing a pot with a wire brush. Lyle enters.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
As he walks in, he clips a tray of freshly potted orchids nearly sending it over.

Simone Randolph pandpSimone

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Lyle moves the tray back into place.

Lyle Randolph pandplyle
@pandpSimone It’s fine. Good morning to you too.

Simone Randolph pandpSimone
@pandplyle *wipes her brow* Those are from Malaysia.

Lyle Randolph pandplyle
@pandpSimone So, I’ll drop Max at his sleepover party on my way to Mother’s.

Simone Randolph pandpSimone
@pandplyle And I’ll be here not doing anything with all the friends I don’t have.

Lyle Randolph pandplyle
@pandplyle Are you still holding onto that?

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Simone goes back to scrubbing her pot.

Lyle Randolph pandplyle
@pandpSimone Why don’t you invite Brynn over? You two seem to be getting along.

Simone Randolph pandpSimone

Lyle Randolph pandplyle
@pandpSimone Right, James invited her to some art opening tonight.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Simone stops in mid-scrub. The color drains from her face.


Lyle Randolph pandplyle
@pandpSimone She didn’t tell you?

Simone Randolph pandpSimone
@pandplyle *on edge* We haven’t spoken.

Lyle Randolph pandplyle
@pandpSimone I hope it works out for her. There seems to be some chemistry there.

Simone Randolph pandpSimone
@pandplyle *laughs* Really? Oh, Lyle, you wouldn’t know the first thing about chemistry. Trust me on that.

Lyle Randolph pandplyle
@pandpSimone I don’t get what your problem is! He’s a nice guy, a doctor, financially secure... no wait, I do get it.

Lyle Randolph pandplyle
@pandpSimone You want to keep her here. Working for YOU! Selfish, Simone. Very selfish.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Simone stares at Lyle blankly. He rarely bites back.

Lyle Randolph pandplyle
@pandpSimone For her sake? I hope she falls for the guy. She deserves better than to spend her life dealing with you on a daily basis.

Lyle Randolph pandplyle

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Lyle walks out, slamming the greenhouse door behind him. Two. Three. Four. Simone bursts into tears.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
TO BE CONTINUED

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
COMING UP TUESDAY MAY 17th on P&P…

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
At the RANDOLPH RETREAT in the BERKSHIRES...

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Inside, the giant dining room table is set for two. Meta Randolph wears a skin tight black dress and heels. And a little too much makeup.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Meta checks her watch. She grabs a glass of wine and walks over to the enormous front windows. She scouts the circular driveway and sips.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Meanwhile, at CRESTON’S GOURMET GROCERY...

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Brynn carries a basket and inspects a pack of skinless chicken breasts. From behind her:


P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Brynn turns, finding herself face to face with Dr. James Bishop.

Brynn Logan pandpBrynn
@pandpdrbishop Hi! What a surprise... running into you here.

Dr. James Bishop pandpdrbishop
@pandpBrynn *holds up his basket* We all gotta eat.

Brynn Logan pandpBrynn
@pandpdrbishop Yes, we do. *looks down* James, I...

Simone looks outside. It’s getting dark soon...

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
