Elle comes home to find Ruby and Ginger sitting on the couch, talking and laughing while the television silently flashes images of commercials in the background.

(Ginger un-mutes the television as the familiar face of Dan Aykroyd peers around a hotel hallway with a cigarette dangling from his lips. The silence in the room is broken only by the stifled laughter of Ruby and Ginger as they anticipate the upcoming scene)

Elle: You’re watching Ghostbusters?
