Drommen and Francine

 

Francine: What will you do now that Hillary’s moved out?

Drommen: (shrugs) I dunno.

Francine: You could date her. I know you like her.

Drommen: I suppose. Now that Phillipa’s gone. Only …

Francine: Only you’d have to give up your hobby.

Drommen stares at her.

Francine: You think I don’t know what you do on the bus?

Drommen: It’s not something I really want to discuss with my sister.

Francine: Nevertheless. You should think about it. She’s worth it.

Naomi: No you can’t! It’s a holiday! The liquor store’s closed.

Milo: Oh I’m having a heart attack.

Rebecca: (shocked) Right now?

Milo: Yes. I’m on my way to the hospital.

Rebecca: Oh my God! Are you okay?

Milo: (shakes head, still smiling) No. Not at all.

Rebecca: (panicking) Your lips are blue! You need an ambulance!

Hillary and Villem (and Drommen)

 

Hillary sits at the window, almost passed out, with her hand in Villem’s lap. Drommen boards the bus.

Drommen: (as he approaches) What the hell are you doing?

Villem: Nothin’ man. Just havin’ a little fun.

Drommen: Go have fun at the back of the bus.

Villem hesitates and Drommen draws back his fist. Villem moves and Drommen sits.

Hillary: Whatchu do that for?

Drommen: Because I care about you. You’re coming with me this time. No arguments.

Hillary: You gonna take care of me?

Drommen: Yes. Either me or my sister. Where are your parents?

Hillary: Don’t have none. ‘S just me.

Drommen: (puts his arm around her and helps her up) Not anymore.

Drommen and Phillipa

 

Phillipa: Why are we on the bus again?

Drommen: We’re going for a coffee.

Phillipa: I told you, I have coffee at home.

Drommen: Oh right.

Phillipa: You’re obsessing over that girl again, aren’t you?

Drommen: I’m not obsessing. I’m worried about her. I want to keep an eye on her.

Phillipa: (takes his hand) You can’t save the world, Jake.

Drommen: Maybe I can save my little part of it.

Phillipa: And then what? You go back to corrupting them with your little fetish?

Drommen shrugs.

Phillipa: Bring your little fetish home to me. She’s not on the bus today.

Drommen: I’ll come back to your place later.

Phillipa: I won’t be there later.

Drommen: Tomorrow then? Next weekend?

Phillipa: Now. Or you take your chances.

Drommen: I’ll take my chances.

Phillipa gets off the bus.
