P&P will begin shortly!

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Hello and welcome to Episode 21 of the Passionate & The Privileged! Previously on P&P…

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Dr. Bishop sought the help of T.J. to get in touch with Brynn for a date. He was a single guy, she was a single girl… or so he thought.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
T.J. put Lyle on the case, who unwittingly brought the subject up in front of Simone, putting her on edge.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Despite an agreement to give each other some space, Simone turned immediately to Brynn for comfort.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Lydia called a family meeting to discuss the dreaded Logans returning to Hunston Hill. She booked out the entire weekend, of course.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Determined to turn an internet romance into something more, Meta invited virtual sweetheart MeatBroker96 to the Berkshires for the weekend.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Lyle can’t understand why the mere suggestion of Brynn dating Dr. Bishop makes his wife so snippy.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Of course, Lyle has no clue Simone and Brynn had kissed in the greenhouse. And the pantry...

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Episode 21 “Whistle While You Wait
zou

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
We cut to the RANDOLPH RETREAT in THE BERKSHIRES - EARLY AFTERNOON...

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
The stately Randolph country retreat is nestled on a quiet lake surrounded by a lush green forest.

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

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
She hums as she adjusts the place settings. On each plate rests a framed picture of a blown up avatar.

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

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Meanwhile, inside RANDOLPH ESTATES...

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Lydia wears black. She paces purposefully in front of a roaring fire. Lyle sits calmly with his legs crossed, reading the family newspaper.

Lyle Randolph pandplyle
@pandplydia We’re so heavy on the human interest stories lately.

Lyle Randolph pandplyle
@pandplydia *reads* “Former Police Chief Finds Solace In Beekeeping”? “Local Teen Reunites Lost Turtles”? It’s a bit much.

Lydia Randolph pandplydia
@pandplyle It’s bad enough that lump of lead you call a sister has chosen her pathetic personal life over our survival. But Timothy James?!

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Somewhere far off, the front door heaves shut.

Lyle Randolph pandplyle

T.J. Randolph pandptj
@pandplydia Sorry I’m late. No, I don’t want to talk about it and no, I’m not hungry.

T.J. Randolph pandptj
@pandplydia *checks his watch* I have to pick up Addie in a few hours. We had to cancel our trip thanks to this.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Lydia stares at her youngest son, her eyes filled with scorn.

Lydia Randolph pandplydia
@pandptj I must have born the bastard child of my neighbor’s husband in a previous life...

T.J. Randolph pandptj
@pandplydia Mom, please. Can we just get to it?

Lydia Randolph pandplydia
@pandptj Certainly! I’m so sorry to cause such disarray in the busy life you wouldn’t have if I hadn’t spent MINE protecting the four...

Lydia Randolph pandplydia
@pandptj...the three of YOU.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Lydia sticks something in her mouth and sucks on it as she talks.

Lydia Randolph pandplydia
@pandptj Perhaps I’ve called meetings before, that you didn’t deem them worthy of your attention. But I assure you, this is no false alarm.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
T.J. looks at Lyle for the straight scoop.

Lyle Randolph pandplyle
@pandptj It’s bad. What I know of it.

T.J. Randolph pandptj
@pandplyle Is it the business? I thought you were working on that broadband thing?

Lydia Randolph pandplydia
@pandptj LYLE doesn’t have the answers, dear!

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Lydia smiles and something shiny flashes in her mouth. She sucks it back in. T.J. looks genuinely concerned.

T.J. Randolph pandptj
@pandplydia Okay, so we’ll get through it. We always do.

Lydia Randolph pandplydia
@pandptj You always were such a foolish optimist, Timothy. It’s hurt us in the past, don’t you agree?

T.J. Randolph pandptj
@pandplydia Why is this suddenly about me?

Lydia Randolph pandplydia
@pandptj Wasn’t it you who struck up a schoolyard palsy walsy with that LOGAN boy?

T.J. Randolph pandptj

Lydia Randolph pandplydia
@pandptj A long time ago, yes, but I don’t recall you ever really expressing remorse. For putting us all at risk like that.

T.J. Randolph pandptj
@pandplydia *stands up* Is this a JOKE?

Lyle Randolph pandplyle

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Lydia sucks voraciously as she edges up to T.J.

Lydia Randolph pandplydia
@pandptj The Logans have come back to finish the job on this family.

Lydia Randolph pandplydia
@pandptj They planted a very clever ticking bomb many years ago. And now? Time’s up.

T.J. Randolph pandptj
@pandplydia Can you PLEASE speak in a language I can understand?!

Lydia Randolph pandplydia
@pandptj Let me try. They’ve got a new claim to everything we own, my son. That suit you’re wearing? It will belong to a Logan.

Lydia Randolph pandplydia
@pandptj Their strategy never changes. All they have to do... is find the weak link.

T.J. Randolph pandptj
@pandplydia And that’s me?! Is that what you’re saying?

Lydia Randolph pandplydia
@pandptj *sucks* I’m saying it can’t happen again. Have I made myself clear, boy?

T.J. Randolph pandptj
@pandplydia No, mom, you HAVEN’T. In fact, I don’t have a clue what you’re talking about, and you know what? I DON’T WANT TO!

T.J. Randolph pandptj
@pandplydia Now, let me tell YOU something. I’m a grown man. Not a boy. So I’m going to act like one.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
T.J. turns and storms out. Lyle races after his younger brother.

Lyle Randolph pandplyle
@pandptj This is way over the line, T.J.! What, you’re just going to walk out?

T.J. Randolph pandptj
@pandplyle I’m sure the two of you can figure this out. You don’t need us. You never did.

T.J. Randolph pandptj
@pandplyle And what the fuck is in her mouth?

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
T.J. leaves before he gets an answer. The front door slams.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Stunned, Lydia spits out what appears to be a shiny penny. Beat. She puts it back in her mouth. And swallows.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Later, at the RANDOLPH RETREAT in the BERKSHIRES...

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Hours have passed. Meta is flopped on the leather couch, staring at the ceiling. Her dress hiked up, a bottle of wine between her legs.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Without warning, she lets out a scream.

Meta Randolph pandpmeta
Aaaaaaaaahhhhhh!!!!!!!

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Meta gets her laptop and stumbles over to the kitchen table. She sweeps everything off, sending it crashing to the floor.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Meta looks down. MeatBroker96’s framed avatar picture is staring at her.

Meta Randolph pandpmeta

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Meta stomps the picture violently, smashing the glass. She checks Facebook. Twitter. Message boards. Chat rooms.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Suddenly, she sees the avatar she’s looking for. It blinks “online now.”

Meta Randolph pandpmeta
*gasps* THERE YOU ARE! *cries* Why aren you here? Why?

Meta Randolph pandpmeta
*squints* Who the fug are you talking to Meatbroke? Dont try to hide, I gotta spy account you ash hole!

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Meta logs on and enters a chat room. She watches with one eye open as MeatBroker96 chats away with another woman.

Meta Randolph pandpmeta
What the... you tellin her you’re a butcher? A fugging busher? You’re not a busher you’re a commonoties trader! Oh my fugging GOD!!!

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Moments later, in SIMONE’S KITCHEN, Simone sits at the kitchen table staring at her cell. Her eyes red from crying. Her cell rings.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Simone’s face lights up, then falls when she sees it’s META RANDOLPH.

Simone Randolph pandpSimone


Simone Randolph pandpSimone
@pandpmeta Oh, God. Have you been drinking?

Meta Randolph pandpmeta
@pandpSimone Jush a little bit. Guesh what? You were right about Meatbroke! He wash so playing me, OMG!

Simone Randolph pandpSimone

Meta Randolph pandpmeta
@pandpSimone I sink I’m gonna end it. Righ here and righ now! So jus saying ta ta. Tell my mom shorry about the rug. She’s gonna be pisssed.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Meta lets out a drunken cackle. Simone leaps up, alarmed. Her senses come alive.

Simone Randolph pandpSimone
@pandpmeta META! Wait. Where are you?

Meta Randolph pandpmeta
@pandpSimone I toll you, the Bershires. Member when you saw all the Lebanese?

Simone Randolph pandpSimone
@pandpmeta That’s right, okay, I’m... I’m... going to come get you.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Simone looks outside. It’s getting dark soon. She winces.

Meta Randolph pandpmeta
@pandpSimone Ooh, thas a long drive Shimone. I’ll prob be gonne by then.

Simone Randolph pandpSimone
@pandpmeta NO! I’ll leave right now. We can talk all about this MeatBroker when I get there. Okay?

Meta Randolph pandpmeta
@pandpSimone *chokes up* You do that for me?

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Later, in CRESTON’S GOURMET GROCERY... 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. 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...

Dr. James Bishop pandpdrbishop
@pandpBrynn No, no. Let’s just zoom right over the awkward moment thing.

Dr. James Bishop pandpdrbishop
@pandpBrynn I saw you looking at art at the gala so I thought, why not give it a shot? I had no expectations. It’s all good.

Brynn Logan pandpBrynn
@pandpdrbishop I am so sorry for not calling you back. I never do that. I’m just in the middle of a... thing right now. With someone.

Dr. James Bishop pandpdrbishop
@pandpBrynn Ah, now that makes sense. See I was told you were not in a thing.

Brynn Logan pandpBrynn
@pandpdrbishop *laughs* It’s a new thing.

Dr. James Bishop pandpdrbishop
@pandpBrynn Is it a serious thing?


Dr. James Bishop pandpdrbishop
@pandpBrynn Well, he’s a lucky guy.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Brynn’s cell rings. It’s Simone. She answers.

Brynn Logan pandpBrynn
@pandpSimone Feeling better I hope?

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Simone speeds down the highway, talking on speakerphone in her Lexus.

Simone Randolph pandpSimone
@pandpBrynn I’m so sorry to call again, but I’m dealing with an emergency. It’s Meta.

Brynn Logan pandpBrynn

Dr. James Bishop pandpdrbishop
@pandpBrynn Of course. I just wanted to... *backs off and waves* ah, never mind.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Brynn waves goodbye to James and walks away.

Simone Randolph pandpSimone

Brynn Logan pandpBrynn

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Simone nearly loses control of the car.


Simone Randolph pandpSimone
@pandpBrynn *choked up* How could you?

Brynn Logan pandpBrynn

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Simone pulls over, growing hysterical. She clutches her chest.

Simone Randolph pandpSimone
@pandpBrynn Oh, God, I can’t do this. I thought I could but I can’t. I’m not strong enough! *looks out the window* And it’s almost DARK!

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Inside Creston’s, Brynn drops her basket and runs outside.

Brynn Logan pandpBrynn
@pandpSimone *calmly* Where are you? I’m downtown.

Simone Randolph pandpSimone
@pandpBrynn *sobs* I know. At the art gallery.

Brynn Logan pandpBrynn
@pandpSimone No, I’m outside Creston’s.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Simone stops clutching her chest, confused.

Simone Randolph pandpSimone

Brynn Logan pandpBrynn
@pandpSimone Simone. I ran into him in the store.

Simone Randolph pandpSimone

Brynn Logan pandpBrynn
@pandpSimone I know what you thought. You really are losing it. Where’s my icequeen who can knock anyone down to size?

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Brynn’s sweetness flows over Simone like a warm breeze.

Simone Randolph pandpSimone
@pandpBrynn She’s here. Somewhere. It’s just been the worst day. And now I have to pick up Meta in the Berkshires.

Brynn Logan pandpBrynn
@pandpSimone The Berkshires?! But that’s hours away. Why does...

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Brynn closes her eyes, searching herself. Finally...

Brynn Logan pandpBrynn
@pandpSimone Nevermind, you can tell me in the car.

Simone Randolph pandpSimone
@pandpBrynn *sits up* Really? Oh, Brynn, would you?

Brynn Logan pandpBrynn
@pandpSimone Only if you promise to let me drive.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
TO BE CONTINUED

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
COMING UP THURSDAY, MAY 19th on P&P…

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Brynn and Simone take a road trip to the Berkshires in Simone’s Lexus...

Simone Randolph pandpSimone
@pandpBrynn I just realized I don’t know a thing about your lineage. What’s your descent? I’d say western European.

Simone Randolph pandpSimone
@pandpBrynn Your mother’s French, but your father was... English? Scottish?

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Brynn tenses while Simone studies her face intently.

Simone Randolph pandpSimone
@pandpBrynn No, Irish. Yes, that’s it. Am I right?

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
And later at the RANDOLPH RETREAT in the BERKSHIRES...

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
A fire crackles in the massive fireplace. A giant painting of John Randolph hangs above it.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Brynn stares at it, reminded of just how surreal her circumstances are.

Meta Randolph pandpmeta
@pandpSimone Simone, I’m really sorry I put this on you, it was so out of line.

Simone Randolph pandpSimone
@pandpmeta What are friends for? So, shall we get your things?

Meta Randolph pandpmeta
@pandpSimone We can’t drive back tonight. There’s supposed to be a terrible storm.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
And later... Simone and Meta sit at the giant wooden table sipping wine. Brynn sets down a plate of perfectly assembled hors d’ouvres.

Brynn Logan pandpBrynn
@pandpmeta @pandpSimone This should get you started.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Brynn rushes back to the kitchen. Meta takes a bite.

Meta Randolph pandpmeta
@pandpBrynn *Loudly* Mmm. These are divine, Brynn!

Meta Randolph pandpmeta


P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Meta watches Brynn bustle in the kitchen. Ponders.

Meta Randolph pandpmeta
@pandpSimone Do you ever wonder why she’s not seeing anybody?

Simone Randolph pandpSimone
@pandpmeta I suppose she’s waiting for the right person.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Thank you for watching! We’ll see you on Thursday, May 19th at 3PM EST for more P&P!
