    and emerge from the back of a garage.

    (43) PRINCE’S POV — INT. LIVING ROOM — NIGHT

    His Mother and Father in the living
    room. His Mother is sprawled out on the
    sofa, obviously drunk, her dress hiked
    along her thighs. Her head rests in his

    The mother and father kissing
    tentatively, then violently, finally
    pulling away. The Mother seems to be

    trap. He kisses her mouth lustily —
    she pulls back snarling–.

    Vanity’s scared — tries to be cool–

    VANITY
