Scene 6

  • Charlotte's in bed, so of course she's wide awake. John sleeps beside her. Why is he the only one without jet lag?
  • She turns on the TV.
  • We cut to Bob. He's doing the exact same thing.
  • Charlotte walks down the hallway; meanwhile, Bob's already in the bar, talking to one of the servers. Charlotte rolls up and takes the seat next to him.
  • Bob and Charlotte get to know each other. He says he's in Tokyo, taking a break from his wife and forgetting his birthday. No, really, he's there getting paid two million bucks to promote a whisky when he should be doing a play somewhere.
  • Charlotte explains that she's there with her husband. She just graduated from college in the spring with a degree in philosophy.
  • What elseā€¦ We learn that Charlotte and John have been married for two years; Bob's been married for 25. Also, Charlotte and Bob both wish they could sleep, which is fine and all, but if they sleep, there wouldn't be much of a movie, would there?
