Wally (and Taylor)

 

Wally sits at the window. Taylor takes the seat across the aisle.

Taylor: (breathing heavily) Whew!

Wally: You look like you been running.

Taylor: I did. I thought I was going to miss the bus.

Wally: Just get off work at the plant?

Taylor nods, still trying to catch his breath.

Wally: I use to work there. Got fired.

Taylor: Oh yeah?

Wally: Yep, got accused of stealing by a co-worker when it was literally him who was stealing.

Taylor: Got thrown under the bus, eh?

Wally: Literally.

Taylor: That’s gotta hurt.

230. Scenes from the Second Seat on the Right

Note: Strong language

Wednesday, April 18th, 8:00pm
Mr. Splindle and Edward

 

Mr. Splindle: So what were you doing before, Edward?

Edward: I worked for a man … er … I was an apprentice of sorts.

Mr. Splindle: That idea died, did it?

Edward: It dyed the wrong colour completely.

Mr. Splindle: And what do you like to do for fun?

Edward: Do you mean what are my hobbies?

Mr. Splindle: No! No, not at all. This isn’t an interview, son! It’s what you might call a recruitment! No, I just want to know what sorts of things might be distracting you from our little venture.

Edward: Well, I like to look at girls.

Mr. Splindle: So you like pussy, eh son? A man after my own heart.

Edward: (frowning) That’s not what I said.

Mr. Splindle: What are you talking about then, lad?

Edward: I like to look at girls, not cats.

Mr. Splindle regards him for a moment.

Edward: And I don’t like dogs.

Mr. Splindle: (pats him on the knee and smiles) Son, the cats we’re going to see tonight’ll have you howling like a dog at the moon.

Farmer Brown (and Phil)

 

Farmer Brown sits at the window. Phil takes the seat beside him.

Phil: (sighs) Oh what a relief.

Farmer Brown: What would that be, son?

Phil: (smiles) I get my car back tomorrow.

Farmer Brown: (smiles back) Nothing quite like having your own vehicle, is there?

Phil: No sir, there’s not. It’s finally out of the shop after my accident, and I’m on the mend too.

Farmer Brown: And the open road is ahead of you.

Phil: Right you are. You know, it’s refreshing to find someone on the bus who really “gets it.” Someone sane for a change.

Farmer Brown: (nods, then takes phone out of his pocket) Excuse me, I have to get this.

Phil: You go ahead.

Farmer Brown: (into his phone) Hello? No. You’re kidding. Again? (frowns) Okay, put her on.

Farmer Brown glances at Phil and rolls his eyes.

Farmer Brown: (into his phone) Moo. Moo moo moo moo. Moomoomoo. Okay. (waits) Yeah, I told her. She promised not to do it again. Okay, see you soon. (hangs up and puts his phone back in his pocket. To Phil:) Damned sheep got out of the barn again.

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.

Candice (and Justin)

 

Candice sits at the window. Justin takes the seat beside her.

Candice: Hey loverboy, long time no see.

Justin: Yeah, I’ve been working on getting out of my contract with Mr. Splin … that guy I was working for.

Candice: You free now then?

Justin: Just about.

Candice: Great. Madam’s looking for a bouncer at the dungeon. You interested?

Justin: Do you think she’d hire me, me being a client and all?

Candice: I don’t see why not. You might have to stop being a client though.

Justin frowns.

Candice: (smiles) I can take care of you privately if you like.

Justin: (smiles back) When can I start?
