Michael (and DeeDee)
Michael sits at the window, reading. DeeDee takes the seat beside him.
DeeDee: (clears throat) Excuse me, sir?
Michael: I’m reading.
DeeDee: (shifts nervously in the seat) I’d like to interrupt you, if I may.
Michael: (looks up for the first time and does a double take) What for?
DeeDee: I’m sorry, but I’d like to ask you to help me. I’m doing a project for college, and I need to interview someone on the bus.
Michael: (smiles and closes his book on his lap) I’d be pleased to help out.
DeeDee: (exhales deeply) Thank you!
Michael observes her as she bends to pull a notepad out of her back pack.
DeeDee: (holds up finger) I’m almost ready.
Michael: Take your time.
DeeDee: Here we go. (straightens and holds a banana up to her mouth) First question: What would you say is the strangest thing you’ve ever seen on the bus? (moves the banana in Michael’s direction)
Michael: (hesitates) You’re … joking, right?
DeeDee: (brings the banana back) About what? (moves the banana out)
Michael: You’re interviewing me with a banana.
DeeDee: (brings the banana back) No I’m not. (holds up notepad) It’s a notepad.
Michael shakes his head and goes back to reading.
