INT. HOUSE. ATTIC. DAY.

We pan along the walls of the attic.

GEORGE (O.C.)
I want a go.

NINA (O.C.)
You've had a go. You've had lots of
goes. She's asleep anyway.

It's pretty much as we remember it, except it's clearly at  
the early stages of being turned into a nursery. A cot, a
mobile, the beginnings of a mural on the wall.

We find George and Nina, sitting on the floor together,
cooing over their baby.

GEORGE
She isn't!

NINA
George, you're gonna wake her. So
selfish, my God.

GEORGE
Give me the damn baby.

Nina is laughing. She hands him the baby. Having her in his
arms makes him beam.

GEORGE (cont'd)
Why don't you go out for a bit. Get
some fresh air. You haven't left the
house for nine days.

NINA
Ah, I dunno. I'm fine.

GEORGE
It'll do you good! Read the paper,
sit in the park, feed the ducks, get
a tattoo.

NINA
You just want to hog the baby.
You're not interested in me now
she's on the scene.

GEORGE
That is simply not true... whatever-
your-name-is.

NINA
(beat)
Full moon in two weeks, what do you
think's going to happen?

It's clearly been playing on George's mind too.

GEORGE
Maybe nothing, maybe she'll be fine.

NINA
I'm sure she can see Annie. Doesn't
that mean she's like us?

George looks at her. He can't answer that any more than Nina
can. A heavy beat.

NINA (cont'd)
How is Annie?

GEORGE
Still at the 'displacement cleaning'
stage.

NINA
And you? How are you doing?

GEORGE
Mitchell was my best friend. How am
I supposed to feel?
(sighs)
I'm ok. I've got you two.

NINA
I'll tell you one thing, we have got
to stop calling her 'the baby'.

GEORGE
You know my feelings on the matter.

NINA
Ok, for the 45th time, we are not
calling her Sapphire.

GEORGE
It's a traditional Jewish name! It
was my Grandmother's name!

NINA
And I'm sure if my grandmother had
been Israel's first stripper, I'd be
very proud too.

GEORGE
Seriously, go out, you're irritating
me now.

NINA
(kissing them both)
Ok, back in ten minutes. Be good.

Nina gets to her feet, crosses to the door. She stops, looks
back at George. Framed in the doorway, she looks beautiful.

3.
GEORGE
What?

NINA
I don't know. You.

GEORGE
You happy?

NINA
(grins) Getting there.
She leaves, closes the door.
