"A New Plan" by Joanna
Kim, Isaac, and Jeremy are gathered together inside the newsroom.
Kim: I hate to interrupt, but Isaac I need you for a second.
Isaac: I'll be with you right after I wrap up with Jeremy.
Kim: Okay, but I'm letting you know that it is urgent.
Isaac: All right, Kim. I'll be finished with Jeremy in another minute.
Kim walks off and grabs Dave.
Kim: Dave. You will not believe...
Jeremy: Anyway, Isaac. I'm really concerned about it. I know I haven't been able to do anything about it, so I'm hoping you can handle the situation.
Isaac: I'm glad you came to me, Jeremy.
Jeremy: I'm not saying she can't do her job-
Isaac: I understand the message. There are times when all of us have some difficulties. You cannot work in this business and not be affected by it.
Jeremy: Thanks, Isaac.
Isaac: I'll have a word with her this afternoon. We'll see how it goes from there.
Dana passes by the two.
Dana: Good morning, gentlemen.
Isaac: Good morning, Dana.
Jeremy: Morning, Dana.
Dana continues to walk by and she has a definite flowing rhythm in her step. Natalie races up to her from behind.
Dana: So... what?
Natalie: How did it go?
Dana: What have you got for me so far?
Natalie quickly glances down at her clipboard.
Natalie: Uh, we've got the Patriots, Redskins, and Bills releasing players because of the salary cap. And... (flips a page) ...we have a little stuff from the Grapefruit League.
As they head toward Dana's office, Dana takes a passing glance inside Dan and Casey's office. Dana grins from ear to ear, but she tries unsuccessfully hiding it from Natalie.
The two start walking down the hallway.
Natalie: What's in the bag?
Natalie tries to look inside the paper tote Dana is carrying.
Dana: You'll see.
Natalie: You two had a great time yesterday. I know it.
Natalie: You can't stop smiling. You and Casey had a great time. What did you do? How was he? Where did you go?
The two walk into Dana's office.
Natalie: Casey was a perfect gentleman, wasn't he? You've got to tell me.
Dana sets the bag on her desk.
Dana: Natalie, we had a great time last night.
Natalie: I knew it!
Dana reaches inside the bag.
Dana: I don't want to put too much into last night.
Natalie: You've been going out for years.
Dana: This was our first date.
Natalie: Did he kiss you?
Dana pulls out a piece of pottery- a vase.
Dana: This is what we did yesterday.
Dana sets the vase on her desk.
Natalie: You went shopping for a vase?
Dana: We went to a pottery class, and we got to make our own pieces.
Natalie: Awesome. You made this yourself?
Natalie admires Dana hand-crafted piece.
Natalie: It's beautiful... What did Casey make?
Elliott: I'd say it's an ash tray.
Chris: You can use it to hold paper clips.
Will: Or even rubber bands.
Elliott, Chris, Will, and Dan are gathered around Casey inside his office.
Casey: Guys, it's a drink coaster.
Dan: I don't think it could hold a drink.
Casey: It's perfectly fine.
Casey sets it on his desk.
Casey: I'll demonstrate.
Dan hands Casey his bottled water.
Casey sets the bottled water inside his coaster. The second he releases it, the bottle tips over and spills onto the floor.
Elliott: Yup, ash tray.
Casey reaches down and grabs the bottle.
Casey: It fell because the floor's not level.
Dan gives Casey a pat on the back.
