Director: Lights!
Mary-Kate: But..
Director: Camera
Mary-Kate: Wait!

Mary-Kate: But a waves coming!
(the wave appears and Mary-Kate disappears under it)
Director: CUT!

Mary-Kate: (quoting her lines) Help! Help! I'm over here! (waves arms then suddenly..) AUGH! (she leaps up out of the water showing it isn't even waist deep)
