    Matt steps on flower. They argue. Louise throws flower at Matt and exits.

    Matt on stage and Louise enters on Juliet. They pace. Matt has an idea and then exits.

    He re-enters ‘carrying’ a boombox. He throws rocks at Louise on the Juliet. She peers out and he raises boombox above his head for the first time. No music plays.

    Matt places it down on the ground. He hits it on the side and the music (Want You Back For Good – Take That) starts playing and he holds it aloft.

    Music continues to play as Louise exits the Juliet. Matt places boombox down but music continues. Louise runs on stage and they hug.
