Scene 11

  • Here, we see Carolyn at work preparing to show a house. As she gets ready to go inside, she stares at a poster across the street of someone named Buddy Kane. He's a rival agent.
  • She gets inside and repeats to herself, "I will sell this house today."
  • She squeegees the windows and cleans while repeating that to herself.
  • Now she's opening the door, letting in potential buyers, and making her pitch. The buyers don't seem impressed by the property.
  • She closes up at the end of the showings and cries at her failure to generate interest in the property.
  • Then she starts hitting herself, telling herself to shut up and calling herself a baby. She composes herself and leaves.
