Mason: [walks upstairs] Liam? You up here? [looks around] Dude, where the hell are you? [enters room] Lydia: [chases after Mason] What are you doing up here? The party is downstairs. Mason: I was looking for Liam. Lydia: Sorry but missing freshmen are a little low on my priority list. [goes to pick up the wine cups] Mason: But not so low that you don’t know he’s a freshmen. Lydia: I might have seen your friend. Downstairs. [wine drops on the carpet floor] Oh my God, the carpet. [drops on the floor and starts desperately scrubbing it] No God, no. Mason: [drops to the floor with her] Hey, it’s alright. It’ll come out. [Lydia keeps scrubbing] Oh, okay. I’m sorry. [Lydia keeps scrubbing] Was it valuable? Lydia: No [stops scrubbing] That’s the problem. Nothing in here is valuable. [Mason looks confused] We just put the house on the market. [Lydia is teary-eyed] It was supposed to be left without a scratch. It has to be in perfect condition. We need every penny we can get out of this place. Mason: Okay, let me go get some club soda and salt. Lydia, it’ll come out. It will. [waits for Lydia to give some kind of acknowledgment] Okay. [leaves the the room]
