Tiffany and Mike are moving into their new home, and unpacking boxes. They wanted to be out of their apartment by the end of the month, and they didn’t realize it was Halloween night.
Tiffany: “Aw shit. We didn’t pick up any candy for the kids. We’re making a bad impression already.”
Mike: “Tiff, we’re just moving in. They can’t expect candy.”
Tiffany: “You think the kids won’t knock on the door? You know what, I’ll put a sign on the door saying, ‘no candy here’”.
Mike: “Okay, whatever. I’ll be upstairs putting our new bed together.”
Tiffany digs in a box a takes out a sharpie and a piece of printing paper. As she writes on the paper, there’s a knock on the door. Tiffany rolls her eyes and goes to the door to answer it. A little girl, is standing there holding a basket.
Girl: “Trick or treat?”
Tiffany: “Hey, aren’t you adorable.”
Girl: “I’m a princess.”
Tiffany: “I’ve never seen a zombie princess before. I’m so sorry, we’re just moving in, so we don’t have any candy.”
Girl: “No treat either?”
Tiffany: “I didn’t think kids actually wanted anything but candy. I don’t have either. You know, ysou shouldn’t be knocking on doors alone. Where’s your mom? Do you live in this neighborhood?”
The girl points next door.
Tiffany: “You live next door? Let me walk you home. Just a minute.”
Tiffany walks back inside and picks up a jacket. She turns back around, and she sees a neighbor holding a bottle of champagne. Mike comes downstairs.
Mike: “I can use some help with the bed. Are you going somewhere?”
Neighbor: “I don’t mean to disturb you. I just wanted to welcome you to the neighborhood. I’m Beth. How long have you been married?”
Tiffany: “Great starter question. I’m trying to help a little girl who should not be walking the neighborhood alone.”
Beth: “All the kids walk in groups.”
Tiffany: “Not this girl. She pointed to the house next door, and I want to talk to her mom about letting her zombie princess walk around alone.”
Beth: “Are you serious right now?”
Beth: “Susan put you up to this?”
Beth’s eyes began to tear up.
Beth: “Susan moved in last year and said the same thing. Do you two think it’s funny joking about me losing my child? You both can go to hell?”
Beth leaves. Mike and Tiffany look at each other.
Mike: “When was the girl here?”
Mike: “Oh. I thought you were on the phone.”
