SAMANTHA
Oh, I’m sorry. Did I startle you? I saw the sign.
FORTUNE TELLER

FORTUNE TELLER

SAMANTHA

FORTUNE TELLER
Come. Come. Sit. Please. Come. Oh my. I wasn’t -- Come.
SAMANTHA

FORTUNE TELLER

She clears her table.

SAMANTHA

FORTUNE TELLER

SAMANTHA

FORTUNE TELLER

FORTUNE TELLER

SAMANTHA
Yes. Well. No. Well.
FORTUNE TELLER
Sh.
