Michael (and DeeDee)
Michael sits at the window, reading a book. DeeDee takes the seat beside him.
DeeDee: Excuse me.
Michael: (glances up) Oh God, not you again.
DeeDee: Yeah, me again. I’ve got something to ask you.
Michael: I’m not interested.
DeeDee: Oh, I think you will be.
Michael: I’m trying to read.
DeeDee: I can wait ’til you’re finished.
Michael: I’m only a quarter of the way into my book. Good luck.
DeeDee: That’s fine. I’ll count while I wait. One, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight, ni…
Michael: (snaps the book closed) Okay, what do you want?
DeeDee: Did you know that peanut butter was first patented by a Canadian?
Michael: (stares at her) You interrupted my reading for that?
DeeDee: It’s something everyone should know.
Michael shakes his head and goes back to his book.
DeeDee: (singing) Peanut butter jelly time, peanut butter jelly time.
Michael: (closes his book) Do you hate me?
DeeDee: A little. (starts singing again)
