CeeGee (and Rachael)

 

CeeGee sits at the window on the phone. Rachael takes the seat beside her.

CeeGee: Hi, yeah, I’m returning your call?

CeeGee pauses to listen.

CeeGee: You’re sure? It’s cancer?

CeeGee pauses to listen.

CeeGee: (smiles) That’s wonderful! Okay, I’ll see you later.

CeeGee hangs up and notices Rachael staring at her.

CeeGee: That was my astrological advisor.

Rachael: (laughs) Oh! I thought someone was sick!

CeeGee: She is. She’s got cancer.

Rachael stares, mouth agape.

CeeGee: She thought it was flesh-eating disease.

Rachael: (rolls her eyes) Well that’s better.

CeeGee: I thought so.

291. Scenes from the Second Seat on the Right

Monday, June 18th, 6:00pm
CeeGee (and Remy)

 

CeeGee sits at the window, talking on her phone. Remy takes the seat beside her.

CeeGee: (into her phone) Boots. What are you wearing? (pause) Yes, that’s all I’m wearing. (pause) That noise in the background? Its the beating of my heart. (pause) I’m in bed, where are you? (pause) Oh yes, take it out, big boy.

Remy: (shaking his head and mumbling) Unbelievable.

CeeGee: (glares at Remy) Oh that’s just the TV. So where were we? Oh yeah, I was just pinching my …

Remy: (singing) Feelings. Nothing more than feelings.

CeeGee: (eyes wide, if-looks-could-kill glare at Remy) It’s the radio. (pause) Yes, I listen to the radio while I’m watching TV. The point is, I’m not wearing anything except boots. Now let’s get on with it, shall we? (pause) Yeah … that’s more like it. Show me what you got, baby!

Remy: (loudly) Tickets! Get your tickets here!

CeeGee: Oh yes, baby, yes! (pause) It’s nothing, just do it, baby, do it! Oh I’m so hot!

Remy: (louder) Ice cream!

CeeGee: (faces the window) I can’t turn the TV down, it seems to be stuck. But that doesn’t matter, baby. What matters is I need you! (pauses) What do you mean, “What am I really wearing?” I’m wearing my boots, just for you! (pauses) Oh, baby, don’t hang up! No, no, no, don’t! … (looks at phone. Sighs. Turns to Remy) Ice cream? Seriously?

Remy: Nice boots.
