GRACE: Well the casting call did say "not too dark."
SAMIRA: Ugh, why.
GRACE: It's set in the 50s.
GRACE: Well there was this demographic.
SAMIRA: Not entirely. Look at the archives. Anyway, it's just ridiculous.
GRACE: Why do you want to be an extra anyway?
SAMIRA: Why not. When will we ever get to do this again?
GRACE: 5am calls? Pin curls? Girdles?
SAMIRA: Professional make-up? Big stars?
GRACE: 50 takes
GRACE: Probably. At least 25.
SAMIRA: Can you just let me dream.
GRACE: I just don't see the appeal.
SAMIRA: The experience.
GRACE: If you say so.
KELLY: Guess what! I got cast as an extra!
SAMIRA: Of course you did.
KELLY: What? Didn't you? Half our hall did.
GRACE: She didn't.
SAMIRA: I'm too Asian I guess.
KELLY: I don't think that's it.
SAMIRA: Why, doesn't it make sense?
KELLY: I don't think of you as Asian.
SAMIRA: What do you think of me as?
KELLY: I don't know, you?
SAMIRA: I don't even know what that means.
KELLY (visibly uncomfortable): Um, you know. You're just Samira.
GRACE: Well I was definitely too Asian to be an extra.
KELLY: Yeah, see. Grace gets it.
SAMIRA: The casting call said "not too dark." Ergo I am too dark. Ergo I am too Asian.
KELLY: Did you just use "ergo" twice in one sentence?
KELLY: Anyway, I have to put pin curls in tonight. It's going to take forever. See ya!
SAMIRA: Like a whirlwind.
GRACE: You know what she meant.
SAMIRA: I'm not white enough to be in a 50s movie, I'm not Asian enough to actually be Asian. Yeah, I get it.
