Marion McPherson is holding a few clothes outside the testing room in a boutique while Christine “Lady Bird” McPherson is trying some clothes
Marion : I guess you wont be going to any dances in college. This is our last one. You know, Davis (college) has a terrific theater. If you are still in theater. Are you?
Christine comes out with a dressing
Christine : Im probably no good at acting
Christine checks herself in the mirror. The dress seems a little too tight for her comfort level.
Christine : Why don’t i look like the girls in the magazines?
Marion : Its too bad i can’t meet this Kyle before prom.
Christine : He is not my boyfriend anymore. I mean, maybe he never even was.
Marion : Well, i’d still like to meet him.
Christine : Its too tight. Fuck!
Christine enters the testing room again. Marion became a little distressed.
Marion : Well, i suggested you not have that second helping of pasta
Christine : Mom!
Marion : Honey, you seem upset about it. And I’m trying to help you.
Christine : Mom, you are giving me an eating disorder. <sigh> I wish I can get an eating disorder.
Christine walks out with a pink dress and looks at herself in the mirror.
Christine : I love it.
Marion : Is it too pink?
Marion looks over the dress two to three times. Christine looks at Marion through the mirror and rushes her way into the testing room again.
Marion : What?
Christine slams the door. Marion seems quizzed about the outburst.
Christine : Why cant you say i look nice?
Marion : I thought you don’t even care what i think
Christine : I still want you to think I look good
Marion : Okay, Im sorry, I was telling you the truth. Do you want me to lie?
Christine : No, I mean. I just wish…i just..I wish that you liked me.
Marion : Of course I love you.
Christine steps out of the testing room
Christine : But do you like me?
Marion seems struggling to search for words.
Marion : I want you to be the very best version of yourself that you can be.
Christine : What if this is the best version?
Marion seems lost at words. Christine then makes her way back into the testing room. Marion almost knocked on the door but couldn’t.
