Plot Summary

A well-known actor, who hasn't accepted a role in four years, is considering a project. The cousin of the director drives him to Archie's Ranch Market, in Carson, and drops him off to do a little research. He's fascinated by one of the checkers, Scarlet, a young woman from Spain with a preternatural ability to ring up items at the cash register. She hates her job, stuck at the 10 items or less lane. The actor chats her up, and when her shift ends, he asks for a ride. In the course of the afternoon, he helps her prepare for a job interview. She needs to have confidence, he needs to commit. Human contact, however brief, can change people. Written by

Goofs Impossible time line. After working eight-hour-shift at grocery store that ends in mid-afternoon (store opens at 7 a.m., meaning she gets off at 3 or 4 p.m.), Scarlet claims she must rush to job interview at construction site that supposedly would close at 5 or 6 p.m. But before going to interview she somehow still finds time to have fight with ex-husband and smash his girlfriend's car in a trailer park, go on shopping spree at Target, have car washed, go to fast food restaurant and have long philosophical discussion with another character - and still make an appointment a mere two hours later.
