Hillary: I kinda been missing you.

Drommen: Really?

Hillary: (shrugs) Kinda.

Drommen: That’s funny, I’ve kind of been missing you too.

Hillary: What do you say we go out for a coffee or something?

Drommen: Just a coffee?

Hillary: If you want.

Drommen: That sounds nice. Actually, I’ve got something for you.

Hillary frowns.

Drommen: No, not that. It’s something I bought the other day. You can have it if you want it.

Hillary: What is it?

Drommen: It’s a tablet.

Hillary: Like, a computer tablet?

Drommen: Yeah.

Hillary: And you want to give it to me?

Vito and Brittnee

 

Vito: It’s not a chick flick, is it?

Brittnee: (curls hair around finger) It might be.

Vito: But you said before we left your place that I’d enjoy it.

Brittnee: (bats eyelashes) Why would I say anything else?

Vito: So you got me out here, on the bus, going to the movies, on a pretense.

Brittnee: What’s a pretense?

Vito: It’s why I’m on the bus. (turns to the window and mumbles) You’d better be putting out tonight.

Brittnee: What was that?

Vito: I said, we’re going back to your place tonight, right?

Brittnee: What for?

Vito: (smiles) A game of checkers.

Brittnee: (claps and bounces in her seat) Oh goodie!

Hillary (and Sean)

 

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

Hillary: What do you want?

Sean: It’s not what I want. It’s what I got to offer. (pulls a baggie part way out of his pocket)

Hillary: Yeah, what’s the catch? Do I gotta sleep with you?

Sean: You don’t got to. You can if you want.

Hillary: May as well. What do I got to lose?

Sean: Your self-respect?

Hillary stares at him.

Sean: (laughing) Yeah I know. I’m a joker.

Hillary: You know what? You’re right. Go find someone else to fuck up.

Sean: Now now, don’t get all grumpy on me. I heard lover boy dumped you. You ain’t got a lot of choices.

Hillary: (shakes head) Right. I’m a fuckin’ loser. Get away before I infect you with my loser self.

Sean: (getting up) It’s your loss.

Drommen and Francine

 

Drommen: Are you sure you’re going to be okay?

Francine: Jake, I’ll be fine. The doctor gave me the go-ahead.

Drommen: But isn’t it a little drastic, you moving out?

Francine: I’ll be okay.

Drommen snorts.

Francine: And besides, I’ve cramped your style enough already.

Drommen: Pfft. What style?

Francine: How about that girl you like? Hillary, or Jessica or whatever her name is?

Drommen: Jessica. She doesn’t want anything to do with me. Thinks I’m a pervert.

Francine: So convince her you’re not. I know you’re a decent guy.

Drommen: (regards her silently for a moment) You don’t know me as well as you think you do, sis.

Francine: Sure I do.

Hillary: What do you care?

Drommen: (sighs) I do care about you.

Hillary: So you wanna get together then?

Drommen: Change of heart?

Hillary: (shrugs) You’re better then Sean. He’s an asshole.

Hillary: (grabs his sleeve) Wait! I didn’t mean it that way.

Drommen: Yes you did. And so do I.
