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.

Devin and Dale

 

Devin: So I was late for work this morning.

Dale: Oh yeah? How come?

Devin: I forgot to turn the dishwasher off before I left the apartment, so I had to turn around and go back.

Dale: Doesn’t your dishwasher turn itself off?

Devin: No. If he runs out of dishes at our place he goes to the neighbour’s.

Dale: Errr …

Devin: My husband’s a little compulsive that way.

Dale: So how do you turn him off?

Devin: Hand him the vacuum. He’ll still be doing it when I get home tonight.

Dale: You must have a very clean apartment.

Devin: (sighs) Yeah. Especially if I don’t watch him on garbage day.

Yvonne and Sarah

 

Yvonne: I think Quinn’s fooling around on me.

Sarah: No way!

Yvonne: (nods) He came home yesterday with enough paint to do the whole house.

Sarah: So?

Yvonne: Three-quarters of the rooms are wallpapered.

Sarah: Hmm. I’d keep an eye on him if I were you.

Quinn and Serge

 

Serge: Glad you came last night?

Quinn: (sighs) Yeah I guess.

Serge: Listen, bro. You got nothing to feel guilty about. It was just a little window shopping.

Quinn: Yvonne wouldn’t agree.

Serge: (shrugs) So don’t tell her.

Quinn stands.

Serge: Hey, where are you going? This isn’t your stop.

Quinn: No, but I’ve gotta get off. The paint store’s right there.

Serge: (laughs) Pussy.

Quinn and Serge

 

Serge: You up for a game of poker Friday night?

Quinn: No, man. I’m too tired.

Serge: Wife still on your case about painting the kitchen?

Quinn: I wish that’s all it was. Yvonne’s just friggin’ nuts since she’s been pregnant.

Serge: You should come to the game. Be a good way to escape.

Quinn snorts.

Serge: I got some cute honeys coming over.

Quinn: (regards him, thinking) I’ll let you know if I can get away.

Candice and Sandi

 

Candice: I can’t believe Madam called us in to work a double shift.

Sandi: We knew after the third movie came out the dungeon would get busier again.

Candice: (sighs) Yeah. Oh well. My favourite new client is coming in tonight.

Sandi: Justin?

Candice nods happily.

Sandi: Really like him, do you?

Candice: Kinda.

Sandi: I’m happy for you.

Candice: Thanks. So what’s going on with the preacher these days? Not working yet?

Sandi: Nope.

Candice: I’m surprised he hasn’t asked you to quit. Or have you brought him over to the dark side?

Sandi: (snorts) Whichever, I just wish he’d decide what he wants to do. I don’t mind being the breadwinner ‘n’ all, but he’s been miserable sitting around doing nothing ever since we got married.

Candice: Tell him to get involved with a group for wayward souls. God knows we get enough of those at work.

Sandi: The scared and the curious.

Candice: And now the Ana-wannabes.

Sandi: (rolls eyes) Yep. You may have something there.
