The scene opens with a conversation between the Governess and her husband, Mr. Green. The Governess is excited to hear that her sister, Sherry, has been cast as the main heroine of the upcoming "mist" television series. She asks her husband why he has not cast her yet, and he responds that it is still too early to cast her in the lead role. He then tells her that he is not interested in casting her because she is not the right actress for the part. He adds that he does not want to "play the victim" because he knows that she will not be able to perform the role again. He tells her to take her leave of him.
