MAX: Come on in. Vague food crisis.
William and Anna move along the corridor to the kitchen.
BELLA: Hiya – sorry – the guinea fowl is proving more complicated than expected.
WILLIAM: He’s cooking guinea fowl?
BELLA: Don’t even ask.
BELLA: Hi. Good Lord – you’re the spitting image of…
WILLIAM: Bella – this is Anna.
BELLA: Right. (pause)
MAX: Okay. Crisis over.
WILLIAM: Max. This is Anna.
MAX: Hello, Anna ahm… Scott – have some wine.
ANNA: Thank you.
Door bell goes. Max opens the door – it is Honey.
She does a little pose, having worn a real party dress.
MAX: Yes, Happy Birthday. Look, your brother has brought this girl, and ahm…
HONEY: Hi guys. (sees Anna) Oh holy f***.
WILLIAM: Hun – this is Anna. Anna – this is Honey – she’s my baby sister.
HONEY: Oh God this is one of those key moments in life, when it’s possible you can be really, genuinely cool – and I’m going to fail a hundred percent. I absolutely and totally and utterly adore you and I think you’re the most beautiful woman in the world and more importantly I genuinely believe and have believed for some time now that we can be best friends. What do you think?
ANNA: Ahm… I think that sounds – you know – lucky me. Happy Birthday.
HONEY: Oh my God. You gave me a present. We’re best friends already. Marry Will – he’s a really nice guy and then we can be sisters.
ANNA: I’ll think about it.
