Percy (and Zoey)

 

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

Percy: Do you ever get the feeling that someone is following you?

Zoey: No.

Percy: Because I think someone is following me.

Zoey: Uh huh.

Percy: When I go to the store, when I go out for dinner … if I go to the zoo … doesn’t matter.

Zoey: So why don’t you just stay home?

Percy: I’m trying to lose them.

Zoey: (stares open-mouthed for a few seconds, then shakes head) Excuse me.

Zoey changes seats.

Joel and Holly

 

Holly: (whining) Buses make me sick.

Joel: (sighs) Hold on babe, it won’t be much longer.

Holly: So, do you think I should tell Bill tonight, about the baby?

Joel: About that. You said he’s going to be mad, right?

Holly: (nods) He might be okay if he thinks it’s his, but when he finds out it’s yours …

Joel: Yeah, I get the picture. So the way I see it is this. We can either take off together, maybe go across the country where he won’t find us or …

Holly: … or what.

Joel: (takes a deep breath) I know a guy who knows a guy who can take him out.

Holly: What do you mean, ‘take him out’?

Joel: What do you think I mean?

Holly: You mean kill him!?

Joel: SHHHH!!!! (whispers) Yes. What do you suggest? Just let him kill me? And you? And the baby maybe?

Holly: (retches) Oh God, get me off the bus now!!
