Hillary (and Drommen)


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

Hillary: (slurring drunkenly) Fuck do you want?

Drommen: Have you been with that Sean guy?

Hillary: What’s it to you? What do you care?

Drommen: I do. You’re not taking care of yourself. And Sean certainly isn’t taking care of you.

Hillary: He’s takin’ better care of me than you have. Dick.

Drommen: I’m taking you home.

Hillary: I’m not going home. Don’t you have a date to go to or somethin’?

Drommen: I do. But you’re more important.

Hillary: Fuck off.

Drommen stares at her for a moment.

Hillary: Sean’ll look after me. An’ if you try to take me home, I’ll scream.

Drommen: Have it your way.

Drommen changes seats.

Edward and Lily


Edward: … so she threatened me with a stake.

Lily: No way!

Edward: Yes way!

Lily: I think we should get her before she gets us. She’s clearly dangerous.

Edward: What do you mean, “get her”?

Lily: You know, get her. Take her down. Down to the ground. Down INTO the ground, if you know what I mean.

Edward: No.

Lily: What do you mean, “no”?

Edward: You’ve got to stay away from her.

Lily: If you think I’m just going to sit by and wait for her to come along with a wooden stake, and…

Edward: I’ll take care of her. I’ll drain her and make her one of us. That’s what I’ll do.

Lily: But … I don’t want there to be another girl vampire. You’ve got me.

Edward: So?

Lily: So, you’ve got me!

Edward: You’re being irrational.

Lily: I’m being irrational? Edward, this girl might have friends. Next thing you know, they’ll be coming after us with torches and pitchforks!

Edward: You’re just jealous.

Lily: I’m … what? Me? Jealous? No way.

Edward: Yes way.

Lily:  (turns away, mumbling) You’re insane.

Bella (and Edward) (and Lily)


Bella sits in the aisle seat. Edward takes the seat behind her.

Edward: I have a confession.

Bella: Oh God, not you again.

Edward: I’m serious, Bella. I have something I need to tell you.

Bella: Leave me alone.

Edward: I fooled around on you.

Bella ignores him.

Edward: With another vampire.

Bella ignores him.

Edward: Bella, I can see this is tearing you up inside and I apologize. I was weak.

Bella continues to ignore him.

Edward: I’m not surprised you’re not talking to me. I wouldn’t talk to me either. (gets up and sits back down abruptly) Oh no. That’s her. You have to pretend you don’t know me.

Bella: (laughs and turns around) Are you serious? Now you want me to ignore you so your little vampire girlfriend doesn’t know you’re in love with someone else?

Edward: (ducking down behind the seat, stage whispers) Don’t talk to me!

Bella: Oh come on, Edward. You know me!

Edward: Stop it!

Lily: (approaches) Edward get up!

Edward sits stiffly, staring forward.

Bella: (to Lily) He’s pretending he doesn’t know me … Oh God, not another one.

Lily: (showing a mouthful of fake fangs) Bitch!

Bella pulls the bell cord and hurries to the front of the bus to get off.
