Coding used:
INT. CAFETERIA TABLE OL - DAY with TABLE - DAY SHARA.STORIES with COFFEE CUP LARAJANE.WRITES with CUPCAKES 1 ALEXA_EPISODE
music int_cafe_radio
@cut to zone 1
@overlay 5931931018067968_TABLE - DAY SHARA.STORIES shifts to -27 -3
@overlay 5931931018067968_TABLE - DAY SHARA.STORIES scales to 1.000 1.000
@AMBER spot 1.280 62 -64 AND AMBER is eat_pizza AND AMBER faces right

Unsure how it make a overlays go in layers especially want to make sure characters are behind table too

@cut to zone 1
@overlay 5931931018067968_TABLE - DAY SHARA.STORIES shifts to -27 -3
@overlay 5931931018067968_TABLE - DAY SHARA.STORIES scales to 1.000 1.000
@AMBER spot 1.280 62 -64 in zone 1 at layer 0 AND AMBER is eat_pizza AND AMBER faces right
@speechbubble is 155 193 to 100%
NARRATOR (AMBER)
And before you think I have no friends.
