Storyboard Text

  • Act 1 Opening Scene 1: Joan & Tom
  • Scene 2: Izzy's Jewish Deli in NYC
  • Gefilte Fish Latkes
  • Scene 3: The Agreement
  • Joan---Look, Tom, we have no choice. You will have to bury the hatchet with Larry & ask him to loan us the $10,000 to get me, us, out of trouble.  Tom---He is a selfish man, Joan. He's disrespected our faith. He doesn't even celebrate Christmas! What makes you think he'll show us generosity? Joan---He's a millionaire, if he doesn't loan it to us, I guess it's right what they say about Jews being stingy. 
  • Act 2 Scene 1: 6 Months Later at a SoHo Boutique
  • Larry---I don't get it. There are literally 3 different kinds of fruit in here. How does that constitute a fruit "salad"?  If I ordered a real salad and it had only lettuce, dressing & tomatoes in it would be appalling, the chef would be fired... Tom---I know we've had our differences, but Cheryl loves you and we uh, I care about you... Larry---Yea, yea I can loan you the money, no problem. Next time I'll order the autumnal jellies assortment and toasts. 
  • Scene 2: The Disagreement
  • Joan---Thank you again, Cheryl, for your financial help.  Larry---You're thanking Cheryl? It's my money we loaned you. You never thanked me by the way.  Cheryl---Larry, its the same if I'm thanked or you are.  Larry---Not really. You know what I was thinking is, if you don't pay me back on time I can use your precious Christ nail necklace to hang up my mezuzah over the doorway.  Tom---You've got a deal. 
  • Scene 3: Cheryl's Judgement Day
  • Larry---Well, well. What do I see here? You're shopping at the boutique huh. Pretty, pretty, pretty nice stuff they got here.  Tom---Oh, hey Larry. Im not, only browsing. Yep.  Larry---Let's address the elephant in the room. I know you know you owe me money. But, what's the etiquette here? It's been months. I'm almost tempted to wipe the debt clean to save our friendship.  Tom--Oh, okay!  Larry--I said almost. Ready to pay up on that bet?
  • Tom---You know Iove that Christ nail necklace. I didn't think you were serious, Larry.  Larry---I do need to hang up the Mezuzah before my dad gets here. Can you lend me a nail?  Tom---This is blasphemy ya know. Your people don't believe in Jesus Christ as the savior.  This is like laughing at my own religion.  Larry---Oh, calm down. You got this at a gift shop! A deal is a deal. 
  • Cheryl--Larry, you understand that my father is much more devoted to his religious symbols & trinkets than you are, show some kindness.  And dad, I know you & mom are capable now of paying Larry back. Please do so before things seem, well disrespectful.  I'm part Jewish by marriage & part Christian, from my upbringing, & I know neither religion condoned conflict among loved ones.   None of us needs to be hurt over money. We would be fools to let that happen.
