PARTY PREP, Part 2
Karla is pacing agitatedly, talking to Tom.
KARLA: Maybe the party will be fine. We’ve barely heard from them in eight months….
TOM (grimly): No. That’s not the way it works.
(Tom escorts her into another room, where we see a graph chart with several dips and curves. He points at it with a pointer.)
TOM: In his 2005 “Ann” relationship, Tanner was quiescent for three months. Note the fights here, then here…
TOM: …culminating in the catastrophic “naked butt-lawn” breakdown of 2005.
(Tom pulls out a new chart. This one starts out in the middle [Tanner and Izzy’s first date], then spikes in various places, ending upward very high.)
TOM: Now, Izzy and Tanner had issues with the apartment in 2006 and a fight on New Years 2007, but Tanner is like an unbanked volcano.
TOM: The longer the quiet time, the greater the explosion of psychodrama.
TOM: I predict a work of staggering proportions.
KARLA: You printed out charts for this?
TOM: Sometimes multimedia presentations are the only way to show a friend his errors in judgment.
