"What do they say?"

The nurse pauses again. " 'Because I get to blow shit up.' "

They look at each other. Slowly, hesitatingly, they laugh.

From a corner of the room comes the voice of director Scott: "Cut." After eight takes, he is happy; Moore isn't.

"Let's do two more takes," she says. She wants to get that laugh just right, lighten it up. Scott says he thinks it's right the way it is, a little subdued. She says she thinks it will work better if she and the nurse share the laugh "just a little more." He thinks a moment, and agrees. They do it two more times. And then a third. And then a fourth. They speed it up, try to make it even more natural.

The nurse and Moore laugh, one more time.

"Cut," the director says. Moore nods. She thinks they've got it.
