Pauline (and Jade)

Jade: Hey you, how are you doing?

Pauline: Great, and you?

Jade: Fantastic. I was just talking to Andre at the mall.

Pauline: Oh yeah? I haven’t seen him in ages.

Jade: He looks great. Oh, and I got this really cute top while I was there … (opens shopping bag and then closes it quickly) Oh shit.

Pauline: What’s wrong?

Jade: I must have switched bags with Andre.

Pauline: Well that’s a drag.

Jade: Not as much for me as him. (opens bag again and shows Pauline)

Pauline: What’s that? Baby clothes?

Jade: Yeah, his wife’s eight months pregnant.

Pauline: So what’s the problem?

Jade: He’s taking tampons, condoms, and a shirt that’s way to small for her home with him.

Jade (and Doug)

 

Jade sits by the window. Doug takes the seat beside her.

Jade: (staring at Doug) What are you, a stripper or something?

Doug: (looks down at himself and then at her, confused) No, I’m a fireman.

Jade: (snorts) Do you wear your uniform all the time?

Doug: No, only when I’m going to a fire.

Jade: (smiling) You’re going to a fire … on a bus?

Doug: Yes. It’s raging as we speak.

Jade: (laughs) Where?

Doug: Downtown. (strains to look at the bus driver) Can you hurry it up?

Jade: Seriously?

Doug: (to the bus driver) There’s a fire downtown. You don’t want to be responsible for people dying, do you?

Jade: Hey! He can’t go any faster. There’s traffic.

Doug: And why do you think there’s so much traffic? There’s a fire!

Jade: (laughs) You’re a stripper, aren’t you.

Doug: I’m not a stripper. I’m a fireman. And there’s a fire.

Jade: Well then why don’t you run? You’d go faster than this bus is.

Doug: That would be violating my … fire code regulations.

Jade: What “fire code regulations”?

Doug: It states that I must arrive at the fire in a city-owned vehicle. I missed the fire truck so I’m on a bus.

Jade: (stares at him for a moment) I’ll give you twenty bucks if you drop trou.

Doug: (hesitates) Make it fifty and you’re on.

Kyra and Jade

 

Kyra: I drank waaay too much last night.

Jade: Oh fuck, me too. I don’t remember nothin’. I woke up on the floor with Richie pretending to be asleep while he groped me.

Kyra: Prick. That’s not too bad. I woke up with your big fat tit in my face.

Jade: No way. Where the hell did we go? I remember walking to the bar.

Kyra: I kinda remember walking home. Next thing I knew I was sitting in some dude’s kitchen, watching him stitch up a cut in his arm. Fuckin’ fucked up.

Jade: I ain’t never drinking again.

Kyra: Me neither.

Jade: Too bad. Richie’s havin’ a party tonight.

Kyra: We gotta go.

Jade: Fuckin’ A.
