Frank's phone starts ringing. He checks who's calling,

but Mr. J snatches the phone from his hands, and looks

at the name on the screen. 


FRANK - Hey! Give me the phone.  it’s my mother! 


MR. J - Oh. Sorry, please, by all means... 


FRANK - No, I dont want to... 


Too late, Mr. J has already pressed the answer button and 

holds the phone out to Frank who reluctantly takes it. He's giving Mr. J a murderous look lowering his voice and turning away from him.


FRANK - Hello? Yes, it's me, Mom. What? Yes Mom, I'm at work.              

                 At work! Of course I have a job. Yes, 

                 I just started, I didn't have time to tell you.
