318. Scenes from the Second Seat on the Right

Note: Strong language.

Sunday, July 15th, 11:00am
Andrea and Lacey

 

Andrea: Ugh. I’m covered in mosquito bites.

Lacey: I thought you liked blood-suckers.

Andrea: Fuck off. Speaking of blood-suckers, it’s been, like, a week since I saw my Eddie.

Lacey: How’d it go last time you saw him?

Andrea: (cocks head) We talked a bit. Then he said he had to run. I think we hit it off okay.

Lacey: I think you should just forget about him. Find someone nice.

Andrea: What do I want “nice” for? It doesn’t matter – they start off nice but then I find out they were dicks all along. Might as well go for someone I know is badass in the first place. Save some time.

Lacey: You’ve got a point.

Hillary and Villem (and Drommen)

 

Hillary sits at the window, almost passed out, with her hand in Villem’s lap. Drommen boards the bus.

Drommen: (as he approaches) What the hell are you doing?

Villem: Nothin’ man. Just havin’ a little fun.

Drommen: Go have fun at the back of the bus.

Villem hesitates and Drommen draws back his fist. Villem moves and Drommen sits.

Hillary: Whatchu do that for?

Drommen: Because I care about you. You’re coming with me this time. No arguments.

Hillary: You gonna take care of me?

Drommen: Yes. Either me or my sister. Where are your parents?

Hillary: Don’t have none. ‘S just me.

Drommen: (puts his arm around her and helps her up) Not anymore.

Phillipa: I don’t know what I’m going to do if I’m pregnant.

Drommen: Don’t I have any say in the matter?

Miriam, and Ursula

 

Miriam: I’ve GOT to tell you about this place I stayed on the weekend.

Ursula: Not good?

Miriam: Oh the place wasn’t bad. It was the shower. The water pressure! Way too much. You want the good news first or the bad news?

Ursula: Give me the bad news.

Miriam: (takes off her hat) It uprooted half the hair on my head.

Ursula: No! What’s the good news?

Miriam: It ironed out my wrinkles for about two hours.

Devin and Dale

 

Devin: So I was late for work this morning.

Dale: Oh yeah? How come?

Devin: I forgot to turn the dishwasher off before I left the apartment, so I had to turn around and go back.

Dale: Doesn’t your dishwasher turn itself off?

Devin: No. If he runs out of dishes at our place he goes to the neighbour’s.

Dale: Errr …

Devin: My husband’s a little compulsive that way.

Dale: So how do you turn him off?

Devin: Hand him the vacuum. He’ll still be doing it when I get home tonight.

Dale: You must have a very clean apartment.

Devin: (sighs) Yeah. Especially if I don’t watch him on garbage day.

Jocelyn and Jody

 

Jody: Mommy?

Jocelyn: (tiredly) Yes?

Jody: Can I be a rocket when I grow up?

Jocelyn: No, you can not be a rocket when you grow up.

Jody: Why not?

Jocelyn: Because a rocket is a thing, and you are not a thing. You’re a person.

Jody: But that new kid Jackie said his dad says he’s gonna send Jackie’s mom to the moon. How can Jackie’s mom go to the moon if she’s not a rocket?

Jocelyn: (thinks for a moment) Jackie needs to keep his mouth shut.

Jody: Jackie said his dad says that too.

Jocelyn: Does your daycare worker know?

Jody: (shrugs) Prolly. Jackie’s mom is my new daycare worker. She doesn’t look like a rocket. But Sammy says her tits look like torpedoes.

Jocelyn: Jody!

Jody: Well that’s what Sammy says.

Jocelyn: I think we need to look for another daycare.

Waylon and Zoey

 

Waylon sits at the window. Zoey takes the seat beside him.

Waylon: Hey, do you know your way around this town?

Zoey: Pretty much. I’ve lived here most of my life.

Waylon: I need directions. I’ve been every way but upwards, and I can’t seem to find any good restaurants.

Zoey: Oh, you’re going to wrong way. You need to get on the southbound bus.

Waylon: Great. I’ll do that on the morrow. I’ve already got breakfast lined up.

Zoey: So you’ll be looking for lunch then?

Waylon: Yep, and thanks to you, in all the right places.
