N/A - Chemistry Read

1 So, um, how is everyone? You know, my brother's being really funny.
- He's kind of keeping it together, uh - Right.
I'm gonna stay here for, uh at least three weeks and get everything cleaned out, 'cause he's gotta go and my sister's gotta be with her kids and so Okay.
I kind of got volunteered into it.
It's all right with work and, um, could be a good opportunity you know, for you to clear out your stuff and not have me around trying to convince you to stay.
Unless you want to stay.
Uh you know, we I don't think that's gonna happen.
Well, you can take the few weeks.
When I get back, we can talk about it.
Uh, yeah, um You know, I I sort of feel like we already had that conversation.
Um Yeah.
Come on, team.
Move the ball up the court.
You're running around out there like a bunch of girls.
Coach Kendall, we are girls.
Well, that's no excuse.
You're 12 years old.
It's time to toughen up and grow a pair.
Excuse me, Miss Kendall, but you can't speak to students that way.
That's Coach Kendall.
And who asked you anyway? As vice principal of the school, I must insist that you stick to the guidelines of teacher conduct.
I have no idea who wrote those guidelines, but I'm trying to prepare these young women for success in the real world where they aren't gonna be coddled by some namby-pamby vice principal.
That-a-way, Rebecca, fight for that ball.
No fighting, Rebecca, this is a non-violent, safe space for learning.
Are you gonna let me coach my team or what? I came to tell you that you missed the sensitivity training workshop last week, so you need to schedule a make-up time.
I'm not doing it.
This school is already too sensitive.
The parents have voted to make the workshop mandatory.
Then tell them they can talk to me directly if they have a problem.
They're all afraid of you, Coach Kendall.

I saw this guy once do this whole routine of getting stoned and looking for cereal that he just made, and he just went on and on and on and he would lose his cereal, and he'd go Go back to the fridge and make some more cereal.
And then he woke up the next morning like, 12 bowls of cereal all over his apartment.
Wait, I'm I'm a little lost.
Wait, just So he does this bit - He's getting stoned and wants cereal - Yeah.

Come on in.
You did good.
Sophie, I'm just calling you with an update.
I spoke to the director again and the executive at the studio, and it seems like everyone's really liking the idea of you for the show.
You know, I do believe they're gonna want to bring you out to LA for a chemistry read where you would read with the other actor who's already cast in the other role.
It's looking very good.
Give me a call back and we'll get into more details.
If I get the part, then I um, you know, I'll I'll probably be moving to LA, uh, 'cause it shoots in LA.
Um, so, um So, yeah, it would be pretty soon.
Like, straight after the play finishes, I'd probably be out there.
So I just thought I should let you know because, obviously, you know, - with you being, you know - I might not You know, it's going pretty quick, so, um I might not be here when You might be gone, you might be out of Chicago when I get home? Well, listen I mean, nothing's like, you know, it's not 100% or anything but If you get the part, is what I'm saying.
Um Well, yeah.
Um, potentially, yeah, that - That could - This feels fast, don't you think? Yes.
I mean, listen, I don't control the schedule.
It's weird to me as well, but, you know, it's like But is this what you want? Well It's, you know, I It's a great opportunity for me, right now, where I am.
It's like, you know, it's a kind of It's a step in a, you know, different direction.
I mean, it's much, you know, bigger role and, like, you know, it would help me get a bit more established and um So, yeah, it's a You know, it's a it's a good career move.
Um You know what I wish? I wish you cared as much about you and me as you do that stuff.
That is not fair.
- That's what I wish.
- That's isn't That's not fair.
I don't think we should text anymore.
It's not good for me.
Because when we text, I think we're getting back together.
When we talk When you did this, I thought you were saying you were rethinking it.
If you're gone, then be gone and just let me figure it out.
But I can't keep having you come back a little bit.
And I know you say we're done and it doesn't feel that way to me.
It doesn't feel that way when we talk, to me, so I must be misreading it and I I think we just gotta stop talkin' for a while.

You can do whatever you want.
And I hope you have the life you want out in California.
