INT. RESTAURANT - NIGHT ANTHONY (22) sits at a small table in a crowded restaurant. Music, small-talk, and clangs from the kitchen all create a constant HUM. In front of him: an empty seat. His leg bounces up and down as he reads the menu. WAITER Is it just you tonight, sir? Or are you waiting on another? ANTHONY Waiting for one more. (pause) I hope she’s real. His eyes widen as he reveals two crossed fingers. WAITER Right... (confused) Well I’ll stop by once she gets here, okay? ANTHONY Sounds good. Sorry, it’s just our first da-- The waiter is gone before he can finish his thought. Alone again, he takes out his phone and snaps a picture of the empty seat. He sends a text to his friends: “Hinge is lame. She’s a no-show... maybe even a bot.” His phone chimes. He reads a text across the screen: “Chill out. You’re like 20 minutes early.” Before he can text back-- WOMAN (V.O.) Hello! Anthony looks up. LIZZY (22) stands before him. Not only does she appear real, she is absolutely gorgeous.
