Drommen sits at the window. Sheila takes the seat beside him.

Sheila: Hi.

Drommen: (smiles) Hi.

Sheila: You’re looking like you’re pretty pleased with yourself.

Drommen: I am. I’ve decided to give up a part of my life that was no good for me. Let it go. Now I’m much happier.

Sheila: Well, good for you!

Drommen: Thank you.

Sheila: It’s important for people to set limits for themselves.

Drommen: It is.

Ms. Ethics (and Hilda)

 

Ms. Ethics sits at the window. Hilda takes the seat beside her.

Hilda: Long time no see.

Ms. Ethics: Well, hello. How is your seance business going?

Hilda: Wonderfully, thank you.

Ms. Ethics sniffs and turns to the window.

Hilda: How is your column working out for you?

Ms. Ethics: (turns back) Very well, thank you. My clientele is mostly happy with my work.

Hilda: That’s lovely. All of mine are happy.

Ms. Ethics: (blinks a few times) Well bully for you.

Hilda: Listen. I was hoping I’d run in to you again. I have a question for you. It’s a personal one. Nothing to do with a client.

Ms. Ethics: (smirking) Go ahead.

Hilda: Would it be improper to tell my ex that his house is haunted by a bad spirit after he’s bought it? He’s going to sign the papers today.

Ms. Ethics opens her mouth, closes it again, and turns to the window.

Simon (and Sofia)

 

Simon sits at the window. Sofia takes the seat beside him.

Sofia: I’m sitting here because there’s somebody at the back of the bus I don’t like.

Simon: Oh really?

Sofia: It’s more like I don’t understand her. All she talks about is guys with beards. She absolutely loves guys with beards. Can’t get enough of guys with beards. I wouldn’t mind, but she’s obsessed. And I don’t know – she’s just got really bad taste.

Simon: (turns) Which one is she?

Sofia: Doesn’t matter. She wouldn’t like you. You’re clean shaven.

Simon: Oh, I don’t care if she likes me. I just want to see how bad she tastes.

Bob (and Robin)

 

Bob sits at the window. Robin takes the seat beside him.

Bob: You don’t look very happy.

Robin: I’m not. I got stood up. By a pastor of all people.

Bob: Really?

Robin: Yeah. My old pastor retired. We’ve got a new guy apparently. I had an appointment for marriage counseling.

Bob: Well congratulations. When are you getting married?

Robin: In three weeks. And if I don’t see the pastor, he won’t marry us. Look; (turns on phone and shows him appointment) there it is, right there.

Bob: Your appointment’s for Saturday. Today is Friday.

Robin: No it isn’t.

Bob: I assure you it is.

Robin: No way. (takes closer look at phone) Fuck.

Bob: I don’t recommend you do that before you get married. But we’ll talk about that tomorrow, shall we?

Robin: (frowns) Beg pardon?

Bob: (holds his hand out to shake) I’m Bob, your new pastor.

Winston and Freda

 

Winston: You know, I could very well be the most beautiful man on earth.

Freda: To somebody, maybe.

Winston: What’s that supposed to mean?

Freda: Your nose is on crooked, you have one eyebrow that constantly looks surprised, and there’s cake in your chin dimple.

Winston: I can pick the cake out.

Freda stares at him.

Winston: I was saving it for later.
