Scene 4

INT. FRAU KNOBLOCH’S HOUSE, KITCHEN - NIGHT
FRAU KNOBLOCH, dressed in a bathrobe, makes coffee. 

FRAU KNOBLOCH
Die Nachbaren denken, Du wärst
eine Schlampe.
   SUBTITLES
   The neighbors think you're a slut.

JUTTA
Mutti, practice your English. And
don't call me Schlampe.
   SUBTITLES
   Mom,  ... slut.

FRAU KNOBLOCH
Why must I meet another Ami?

JUTTA
“American” not “Ami.”

FRAU KNOBLOCH
The Amis are superficial ... und a little
stupid. You need nice German boy.

JUTTA
I love Chris.

FRAU KNOBLOCH
I have always been right on boyfriends.

JUTTA
You've always been right before.

FRAU KNOBLOCH
I know people. That is why I stay home und
watch TV. He want money. Just money.

JUTTA
I trust him. We have no secrets.

FRAU KNOBLOCH
Secrets are the foundation of every good
relationship. You must find a man as good
as Gustav Knobloch.

JUTTA
You can’t expect Chris to be just like my
father.

FRAU KNOBLOCH
Tante Angelika already call me. Says Chris is
handsome but pervert.

JUTTA
Aunt Angelique likes perverts.

FRAU KNOBLOCH
“Angelika” not “Angelique.” She thinks she’s
French.

Frau Knobloch spits to the side in disgust.

JUTTA
She calls herself “Angelique” now.

FRAU KNOBLOCH
I call her the Oberschlampe.
   SUBTITLES
   ...  biggest slut.

JUTTA
It was nice she let Chris stay with her, since
you wouldn’t have him.

FRAU KNOBLOCH
What I tell the neighbors?

JUTTA
You haven’t spoken with the neighbors in 3
years.

FRAU KNOBLOCH
They attack my bush.

JUTTA
That ugly old shrub?

FRAU KNOBLOCH
(furious)
Nobody touch my bush.

JUTTA
Frau Revoir clipped off leaves that had grown
onto her side.

FRAU KNOBLOCH
Stupid French woman. Why she not go back to
France?

JUTTA
She’s from Stuttgart.

FRAU KNOBLOCH
French name.

JUTTA
You overreacted by hacking all the buds
off her pygmy white rose bush.

FRAU KNOBLOCH
They look like little pimples.

Jutta shoots Frau Knobloch a stern look.

FRAU KNOBLOCH
Anyway they grow back. Pimples always do.

Frau Knobloch places the freshly brewed coffee in the refrigerator. Jutta looks inquisitively.

FRAU KNOBLOCH
Everything ready. When Chris come in the
morning, I put in microwave.

JUTTA
Good idea. Well, good night.
