221. Scenes from the Second Seat on the Right


Monday, April 9th, 5:00pm
Ethyl and Betty (and Yuka and Asako)


Ethyl: You see those tarts over there?

Betty: (stage whispers) Mom, they can hear you.

Ethyl: That doesn’t matter; they don’t understand me.

Betty: (stage whispers) Just because they’re from a different country doesn’t mean they don’t speak English.

Ethyl: Pfft. Listen to ’em! They’re speaking some Arab language. Couple of sluts.

Betty: (stage whispers) MOM!

Yuka and Asako stand.

Yuka: (to Ethyl as she passes on the way to the door) You’re a very rude lady.

Ethyl: Hey! You can’t talk to me like that!

Betty: (as Yuka and Asako disembark) Well, you weren’t very nice to them.

Ethyl: She called me rude in English! At least I didn’t call them sluts in their language!
