Hillary (and Sean)

 

Hillary sits at the window, looking at an iPad. Sean takes the seat beside her.

Sean: Whatcha got there?

Hillary: Jake gave it to me.

Sean: Ooooh, things are escalating. He found out what a great cocksucker you are, huh?

Hillary: Why do you have to be so crude? And no, I didn’t suck his cock. He just gave it to me ‘coz he likes me.

Sean: He’s expecting it though. No guy gives things away without expecting something in return.

Hillary: No, that’s just you.

Sean: Pfft. Wait and see.

Hillary: No YOU wait and see. Jake’s a gentleman. You’re just a dick.

Sean: HA! A gentleman who plays with himself on the bus. HA!

Hillary: Shut up. He doesn’t do that anymore.

Sean: That’s what you think.

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: 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.
