Janet gets out her car and she’s walking towards a front door.
Janet: (to herself) If I have to kick the door down and drag her out, I will. I can’t leave without her.
Janet bangs on the front door. Jaleen opens the door.
Jaleen: What are you doing here?
Janet: I came for you.
Janet pushes her way through the front door.
Janet: You can’t stay here. You can stay with me, get a job, you’ll be fine.
Pete walks into the living room from the kitchen. Both women look his way.
Janet: (to Pete) You’re a monster. I’m not going to stand by and let you hurt my sister, you asshole!
Jaleen: Janet! Stop it.
Janet: What? You’re defending him?
Jaleen: He’s my husband.
Janet: Your HUSBAND is beating your ass! And everyone knows it! Your neighbors, all your old friends, our family. You need to pack a bag and leave with me right now. We’ll pick up the kids from school.
Pete: You lost your mind if you think you’re gonna come in here and take my family away.
Janet and Pete stare at each other. Janet pulls out a Taser.
Jaleen: Janet! I’m not leaving. You have to leave. This is none of your business.
Janet looks at Jaleen stunned.
Janet: He’s going to kill you.
Jaleen: (tearful) Get out!
Janet: (starts to cry) Oh, now you have balls.
Janet leaves out the front door, and gets in her car.
Janet: (to herself) I tried.
