Note: Strong language

Thursday, December 28th, 3:00pm 3:20pm
Hillary (and Bella)

 

Hillary sits at the window. Bella takes the seat beside her.

Bella: Excuse me, haven’t I seen you on the bus before?

Hillary: Probably.

Bella: I’m looking for a guy, about six feet, dark hair, pretty good-looking. He’s on this bus a lot.

Hillary: He usually sits here?

Bella: That’s the one. Have you seen him lately?

Hillary: Jake’s actually a friend, kind of. I’m looking for him too.

Bella: (frowns) I thought his name was Drommen. Maybe that’s his last name.

Hillary: (frowns and turns up lip) We can’t be talking about the same guy then. I heard that Drommen guy is a pervert. Jake is really nice.

Bella: No way. Drommen is really nice. He can’t be a perv …

Hillary stares out the window. Bella gazes down the aisle.

Both: (turning to speak to each other) Always wears a black trench coat?

Hillary: Shit.

Bella: Shit is right.

24. Scenes from the Second Seat on the Right

Sunday, September 24th, 10:00am
Madigan and Barb

 

Madigan: (looking out the window) So what makes you think Ken’s fooling around on you?

Barb: He’s just acting really weird lately.

Madigan: (regards Barb) Weird like what?

Barb: I don’t know. It’s just one of those things a wife notices. You wouldn’t understand.

Madigan: What does that mean?

Barb: Well, you know. You and Tom were never really happy.

Madigan: That doesn’t mean I wasn’t a wife to him.

Barb: Come on, Maddie. He never even loved you. How can you say you knew him at all and that you’d notice little things that a real wife does, when you couldn’t even comprehend that? And anyway, you weren’t even married.

Madigan: (turns to the window) Marriage is just a piece of paper.

Barb: You wouldn’t know though, would you? You’ve never been married. Ken loved me enough to put a ring on my finger and tell the whole world that he wanted to spend his life with me. Nobody’s ever done that for you.

Madigan: (looks sharply at Barb) And yet you think he’s fooling around on you!

Barb: (checks her fingernails) Eeh, it’s probably just my imagination.

Madigan: (stares out the window and mumbles) Don’t count on it.
