Sonny and Mike Have Thanksgiving Dinner
Sonny has just gotten back from seeing Carly. He told her he had signed the divorce papers and also wished her and Michael a happy Thanksgiving. He walks into his new refurbished Penthouse. November 22, 2001.
Sonny: Who’s there?
Mike: (Comes walking out of the kitchen) Hey.
Sonny: Hey (hangs up his coat on the back of the chair).
Mike: I figured you wouldn’t have time to cook Thanksgiving dinner.
Sonny: Why would you think that?
Mike: Am I wrong?
Sonny: Did I invite you? (teasingly).
Mike: There’s turkey breast with chestnut stuffing.
Sonny: Oh. You didn’t use oysters (friendly banter).
Mike: And the potatoes are on and I picked up a couple of pies at Kelly’s.
Sonny: Yeah. Why would you do that?
Mike: Well, you have to eat something.
Sonny: What about you?
Mike: I have plans.
Sonny: Stick around.
Mike: Well. I’d love too . . .
Sonny: Well, you already messed up my kitchen, you know. Go ahead. Stay for dinner.
Mike: You sure?
Sonny: How many times do I have to ask you?
Mike: Okay (puts his coat down).
Sonny: All right (walks to the bar and starts pouring them a drink).
Mike: So. Are Carly and Michael dropping by?
Sonny: Uh . . . No (still pouring drinks).
Mike: Sorry to hear that.
Sonny: Yeah. Well . . . actually . . . (hands Mike glass) . . . they won’t be dropping by anymore (sadly).
Mike: Families are tough.
Mike: Other people depend on you. I mean, not that I’m any good at it. I always let everyone down who’s ever loved me. But, you know it’s not just you . . .
Sonny: Okay, Mike (puts hand up). If you’re asking me to forgive you, I can’t.
Mike: I realize that, but I want to tell you . . .
Sonny: I want to forgive Carly. I try.
Mike: I know you do.
Sonny: It’s just . . . forgiveness is not in me.
(Sonny walks away from Mike. He has a look of distance and sadness in his eyes. Mike looks at him with concern. The next scene is of them sharing Thanksgiving dinner).
