A Simple Favor (2018)
Sean: She's an enigma my wife. You can get close to her, but you never quite reach her. She's like a, beautiful ghost.
Emily: Did you just take my picture? Erase it.
Stephanie: I guess I'm not the kind of person you're normally friends with.
Emily: Oh, you don't want to be friends with me, trust me.
Emily: Stephanie. I need your help.
Stephanie: Uh, are you okay?
Emily: I'm fine, but I do need just a simple favor. Can you come over?
Stephanie: [Running after Emily] Emily! Emily, stop! Emily, you can't outrun this! Don't do this to Nicky! Come on, you're still his mom!
Emily: [Stops and turns to Stephanie] Yeah, I am. But you sure as shit won't be.
[as she is about to shoot Stephanie, she is suddenly hit by a car; the car stops and Darren gets out]
Darren: America's hybrids. Silent, but deadly.
Librarian: [to Stephanie, who just walked up to her desk ] Whaddya want, Cupcakes?
Emily: Wanna trade confessions?
Stephanie: Nah, nah, nah.
Emily: Come on. What's the wildest thing you've ever done?
Stephanie: [as Emily is being arrested and taken away by the police] I'm sorry! I'm not sorry! I'm still working on that!
Stephanie: [Referring to the friendship bracelet] Here. I made that for you.
Emily: You made this for me?
Stephanie: Thought it would go with that pinstriped suit you have.
Emily: Really? That's nice. No one does stuff like this for me.
Stephanie: I used to watch those Bewitched reruns on TV Land, and I always thought it was so classy when Darren would come from work and Samantha would fix him a Martini. So every time we do this, I feel so high-tone.
Emily: My god. You're such a nerd.
Stephanie: [Doing an entry for her vlog] Hi moms. Stephanie here. I'm going to do something a little different today. I normally avoid any talk of religion on the vlog. I don't want to offend any non-denominational moms, but I do think that we live on after we die. So, Emily, if you are out there, and you can hear me right now, no one could ever replace you. And you'll always be Nicky's mom. I can't take your place. I can just try to love the people that you love and try to make their lives better. I think that's what you would want.
Diana Hyland: She never let me paint her face except for this one. I've never seen such a beautiful girl want to be so invisible or just completely vanish. But you know what, it takes money to vanish, and so she took everything that she could from me. You know how I would paint you? Beautific. Like, like a fucking saint.
Stephanie: I get that a lot.
Diana Hyland: You should embrace it. People love saints.
Stephanie: Yeah, after they're dead.
Stephanie: [Referring to Davis and Chris dying in the car crash] It's my fault. I'm the reason they're both dead.
Emily: No. Hey, don't do that. People, people do terrible things for their own fucked-up reasons. That's on them, not on you.
Stephanie: Yeah. I miss him.
Emily: Which one?
Stephanie: Both. I'm lonely. I think loneliness probably kills more people than cancer.
Stephanie: Everybody has a dark side. Some of us are better at hiding it than others.
Stephanie: [Talking to the camera while doing an entry for her vlog] Hi moms, Stephanie here. Today, as promised, I am going to share my zucchini chocolate chip cookie recipe. But first, many of you have asked me for an update on the Emily situation. And for those of you who are new to my vlog, you should know my best friend Emily is missing right now. She asked me a simple favor, to pick up her son Nicky from school, which was five days ago, and she hasn't come back yet, so I'm sorry. We're all really worried, and I'm doing everything I can to help the police track her down. But I'm realizing I don't know her as well as I thought I did. It's like my mom used to say, God rest her soul, um, "Secrets are like margarine, easy to spread, bad for the heart". But as different as we are, I do consider Emily my best friend. She is this wonderful, elegant person. And our sons brought us together, actually. Well, you know, for our new friends, I'll just started from the beginning. I met Emily a few weeks ago at school. It was international cuisine day in my son's first grade class, and once again, I drew Sweden, which meant my famous meatless meatballs.
Sean: What did you guys get up to today at school?
Nicky Nelson: I saw my mom.
Sean: Um, I understand, Nicky, that sometimes we think we see people that we miss even if they're gone.
Nicky Nelson: No, I saw her. She was right outside the fence by the kickball yard at recess.
Sean: Well, lots of people look like someone else.
Nicky Nelson: Nobody looks like mom! She told me to say hi to Stephanie.
Sean: Nicky, this is unhealthy.
Nicky Nelson: Miles saw her too, right Miles?
Miles Smothers: I think I did. But I don't know. I was playing tetherball.
Stephanie: Did you two hatch this up? Is this a game, like when you smash everything with trucks? Because you know what we say about lying.
Nicky Nelson: I'm not lying! I saw her! Fuck you!
[Leaves the dinner table and runs off]
Sean: Hey, Nicky!
Miles Smothers: Oopsy.
