Picture Segment Description
SCENE 1 Linda paces back and forth on the block in a huff. Mr. Hooper and Olivia watch, as he explains that Bob was supposed to meet Linda a half hour ago and hasn't shown up yet. Linda signs a rant about how angry she is. Bob finally arrives, gleefully carrying some sheet music. Linda lets him have it through sign (going so far as to accuse him of being sexist by suggesting his work as a male is more important than hers as a female). Bob tries to explain himself, but she won't listen. The two fume in silence before they start to break out in giggles and make up.
