(Shoe store in Midtown Manhattan. Emily, Ashley, and Diana are looking for shoes, Samira is bored along for the ride )
EMILY: What about these? Do they look good on me?
SAMIRA: They're so high....are you going to be able to walk by the end of the night?
EMILY: Four inches is really not that bad, I swear. I'll keep flip-flops in my clutch or something.
SAMIRA: Wait, you're talking about the one with the silver sequins right...
EMILY: Right, the one goes with the dress.
SAMIRA: That one's tiny! It barely holds your lipstick and your phone.
EMILY: Diana can carry them in hers then!
SAMIRA: She's going to love that
LEILA: Samira, weren't you just in here yesterday?
SAMIRA: This time it's not for me. Emily, this is my cousin Leila
EMILY: Nice to meet you.
LEILA: You too. Let me know if you need help finding anything.
EMILY: Which side?
SAMIRA: Um, the white side. Of course.
EMILY (smacks Samira): Samira, I can't believe you said that!
SAMIRA: What, she's white. She knows she's white.
EMILY: That's so rude. (to Leila) Sorry about that. (holding up the pair of shoes) Do you have these in a seven?
LEILA: Let me check, I'll be right back.
(Leila exits. Ashley and Diana walk over)
DIANA: Did you find anything?
EMILY: I think I like these. Samira's cousin is looking for a seven for me.
ASHLEY: I didn't know your cousin worked here.
SAMIRA: Yep, she...
EMILY (interjecting): She introduced me, and when I asked her what side of the family, she said "the white side". Can you believe that??
DIANA and ASHLEY simultaneously: What?! Samira! I can't believe you said that. Why would you say something like that. (etc)
ASHLEY: What do you call the other side of your family? The colored side?
SAMIRA: No, the Indian side. Duh. They're Indian.
(DIANA, ASHLEY, and EMILY continue to talk about Samira's comment. Leila returns with the shoes)
LEILA: Here, try these.
EMILY (trying them on): They're perfect, I'll get them.
LEILA: Great! Follow me, and I'll ring you up.
(Leila and Emily exit. Samira starts to follow.)
SAMIRA (turns back to Diana and Ashley): Are we getting out of here or what?
DIANA: Wait, that was your cousin?
SAMIRA: Yeah, why?
DIANA: I was expecting her to look more mixed.
SAMIRA: She's white!
ASHLEY: But her hair's so light. And she has green eyes. Personally, I expected her to look more like you.
SAMIRA: I...you realize that I'm half-German right?
(Samira exits. Diana and Ashley pause for a beat and then follow)
