FADE IN: inside a Lyft car.
She: I’ve never heard of Downey.
He: It’s South-West from there.
She: Uh-huh. How long have you been there?
He: We moved 17 years ago.
She: Oh, you bought a house.
He: No we rent.
He: It’s quiet over there.
She: Ohsure, I’m sure it is.
He: How long have you been in Santa Monica?
She: A year.
He: And before that?
She: I’m from Houston. You?
He: Born and raised in this neighborhood, but we got priced out. Same ol’ story.
She giggles nervously.
She: What’s with this rain, huh?
