Danielle (and Dale)

 

Danielle sits at the window. Dale takes the seat beside her.

Dale: Hey, Danny, long time no see.

Danielle: (frowning) Yeah …

Dale: What’s new with you?

Danielle: Oh, you know.

Dale: Lots of changes for me. I just moved and stuff.

Danielle: Uh huh.

Dale: So, how’s the wife?

Danielle: I … don’t have a wife.

Dale: (one eyebrow raised) Didn’t you get married a while ago?

Danielle: Yeah, but I married a man.

Dale: Really? I didn’t know you were gay.

Danielle: I’m not.

Dale: (turning red) I’m sorry, I thought you were someone else.

Danielle turns to the window, self-consciously rubbing the dark hair on her upper lip.

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.

Candice sits at the window, Sandi in the aisle seat. Dale takes the seat across the aisle.

Dale: (to Sandi) Hey, I haven’t seen you in a while.

Sandi: Hi.

Dale: What’s new?

Sandi: Not much. I got married a few months ago.

Dale: That’s great! Congratulations.

Sandi: What about you?

Dale: Oh you know. Wife left me.

Sandi: That’s too bad …

Dale: (waves hand) It happens. (holds up a leash) And then my dog.

Sandi: Left you?

Dale: Just got hit by a bus. Yesterday.

Sandi: Oh no!

Dale: Yeah. I’m taking the leash to give it to a friend.

Sandi: I’m so sorry for all your troubles.

Dale: Thanks. (looks up) This is my stop. Nice to see you again.
