All of them didnt seeem in the mood to do anything but sit there and wait. Nick and Jillian sat on the couch together while Joe and Grace wre in the kitchen trying to find some food.)
JILLIAN: So how is Kevin handling everything?
NICK: Oh, hes fine. Hes just so worried about Beth. He wouldnt tell me what they talked about on the phone, but he seemed different after they talked.
JILLIAN: Beth told me what happened. She was really upset with herself because Kevin told her he loved her, and she didnt tell him that she loved him back, even though she really does. She said she was just really overwhelmed with it all and didnt have to courage to say anything back.
NICK: (to himself, almost) wow, smooth Kevin. Did he really think in a hospital over the phone would be the right time to tell her that?
JILLIAN: (smiling) Hes a hopeless romantic, they both are. He would think any place would be romantic.
(Nick and Jillian Lauged. It was the fist time theyd laughed or smiled all night. It felt good.
JILLIAN: So, I wonder how those two are getting along.
(Jillian gestured toward Grace and Joe who looked like they were talking and smiling)
NICK: Looks like theyre getting along fine to me.
(Grace and Joe were sifting through the cabinets and fridge.)
JOE: so what do you have a taste for?
GRACE: Oh, you know me. Ill eat anything.
JOE: (Smiling) We have so much in common.
GRACE: I know
(Grace was silent for a moment in thought. She was taking it all in. she looked at Joe and he was looking at her funny.)
JOE: Nothing. Just looking at you.
GRACE: (laughing) well I can see that. Any particular reason?
JOE: Youre beautiful. Thats all.
GRACE: Way to be subtle. But thank you. No ones ever called me beautiful before.
JOE: Really? Thats hard to believe. Like impossible.
(Grace smiled at Joe and he smiled back. At that moment, they both realized how perfect for each other they really were. Joe looked at Grace and she looked up at him. They both smiled and Grace giggled.)
GRACE: ITs funny how things can happen, isnt it? I mean, Im just a little nobody from Indiana and youre one of the biggest stars on the planet. And Im here with you right now. Its wild.
JOE: youre definitely not a nobody to me.
GRACE: (smiling) to everyone else I am. But I guess your opinion is all that matters.
JILLIAN: Aww, you two are adorable.
(Joe and Grace turned and saw Nick and Jillian turned on the couch watching them.)
JOE: we didnt realize we had an audience.
NICK: well, we couldnt help but overhear.
JOE: Yeah, yeah. Whatever.
JILLIAN: Have you guys found any snacks yet? Im starving.
GRACE: Nope. Theres nothing good here. Joe ate it all.
JOE: this is true. But its ok cuz Grace and I will make a food run later, ok?
NICK: Later? How about now. I need food.
JOE: Oh, whatever. Grace, lets go find a vending machine.
GRACE: ok, I saw one down the hall.
JOE: Race ya?
(Grace was running toward the door before Joe even said Race Ya.)
JOE: No fair! No head starts!
(Joe shut the door behind him and Jillian and Nick looked at each other and rolled their eyes.)
NICK: Joe will never grow up. I swear.
JILLIAN: Neither will Grace. Theyre meant to be. Its fate. I knew it.
(Jillian smiled at Nick. Just as Jillian was about to say something, Nicks phone rang. They looked at each other. They were both nervous and Nicks face showed it.)
JILLIAN: (reassuring) Its ok. Im sure it went fine. Just answer the phone.
(Nick answered his phone.)
