Robert and Donald

 

Donald: So, what are we doing for Valentine’s Day?

Robert: Oh I don’t know.

Donald: I guess we should do something.

Robert: We don’t have to do anything.

Donald: We don’t?

Robert: Well, not together at least.

Donald: What are you suggesting?

Robert: I was thinking about going out with a friend.

Donald: A friend friend? Or …

Robert: Not … necessarily.

Donald: You mean you have a new lover?

Robert: I … might.

Donald: Huh.

Robert: You’re not upset, are you?

Donald: Not … well, not too upset. You could have told me though.

Robert: So what, you could fire me?

Donald: I’d never do that!

Robert: Pfft. Sure.

Donald: I wouldn’t! And anyway, I have a new boyfriend. Take that!

Robert: You do?

Donald: Yes. We’ve been seeing each other for weeks.

Robert: Then why are you still living on my couch?

Donald: Because I didn’t want to upset you!

Robert laughs.

Donald: What are you laughing about?

Robert: Just … nothing.

Donald: Huh. So you want to double date on Wednesday?

Robert: May as well. But you won’t be coming back to my place after.

Donald: Why not?

Robert: Don’t you think that would be a bit awkward?

Donald: Well I can’t go back to his place. He lives with his mother.

Robert: (slumps in his seat) There goes Valentine’s Day.

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.

Brandon and Jordan

 

Brandon: How goes it with Marissa?

Jordan: I’ve decided to get back together with her.

Brandon: Does that mean …?

Jordan: (nods) I’ve got it all planned out for Valentine’s Day. Hotel room, flowers, chocolate, champagne; the whole nine yards.

Brandon: Scruples be damned?

Jordan: I just can’t live without her, ya know?

Brandon: You know, she’s not the only girl out there.

Jordan: She is for me.

Brandon: Do you know if she’s a virgin too?

Jordan: She’s not.

Brandon snorts.

Jordan: What?

Brandon: I’m afraid she’s just using you. What if she has her way with you and then just forgets about you?

Jordan: What if I punch you in the head?

Brandon: Hey man, I’m just looking out for your best interests.

Jordan: Yeah, well, she’d never do that. She loves me.

Brandon: Not enough to stay with you if you don’t have sex with her.

Jordan: You’re an asshole, you know that?

Brandon: (turns to the window, mumbling) Yeah, the asshole who’ll be here to pick up the pieces.

Brandon: Why you so down today?

Jordan: What do you think?

Brandon waits quietly.

Jordan: Marissa broke up with me.

Brandon: No way!

Jordan nods and bites his nails.

Brandon: Did she say why?

Jordan shakes his head slightly but says nothing.

Brandon: Is it the sex thing?

Jordan nods.

Brandon: She doesn’t deserve you, man.

Jordan: I dunno.

Brandon: No, seriously. Stick to your guns. If sex is all she wants, she’s not worth it.

Jordan: I broke my fuckin’ ankle for her.

Brandon: Exactly.

Robert and Donald

Robert: It’s time.

Donald: For what?

Robert: For you to get off my couch. You’re going to have to make a decision.

Donald: Between what?

Robert: Either move into my room or get the hell out. I haven’t gotten laid in more than two weeks.

Donald: (sighs) What will everyone at work think?

Robert: They’re already talking. They know we go home together every night.

Donald: (straightens and stares at him) You mean they know we’ve … coupled?

Robert: (laughs) Coupled?

Donald: You know what I mean.

Robert: If by a couple of blow jobs …

Donald: SHHH!

Robert: (crossing his arms) You’re not ready. I think you should find another place to stay.

Donald: Hmph. And where do you propose I go?

Robert: Go find yourself a nice girl.

Donald and Robert

 

Robert: So what now? You can’t live on the street.

Donald: I’ll just have to move in with you.

Robert: (raises eyebrows) I beg your pardon?

Donald: You’re the one who got me into this mess in the first place. It’s the least you can do.

Robert: If I remember correctly, it was you who came on to me.

Donald: Well I wouldn’t have if you weren’t gay. Now I’m gay too.

Robert: I didn’t make you gay.

Donald: Didn’t you?

Robert: NO!

Donald: So you’re not going to let me move in with you?

Robert: NO!

Donald: Fine. Then you’re fired.

Robert: You can’t fire me because I won’t let your sorry ass move in with me!

Donald: Try me.

Robert: Okay then. Fire me and I go to YOUR boss and tell him you’ve been blowing me every chance you get.

Donald: You wouldn’t!

Robert: Damned right I would. And you know what the school board is going to think of that, Mr. Principal!

Donald snorts and crosses his arms over his chest.

Robert: Look, you can stay with me for a couple of days until you find a place.

Donald: (smiles) Thanks.

Robert: You can sleep on the couch.

Quinn and Yvonne

 

Yvonne: I hope you don’t think I’m going to talk to you tonight.

Quinn: I don’t expect …

Yvonne: Of course not. That’s why we’re going to a restaurant instead of staying home for Thanksgiving dinner.

Quinn: But you …

Yvonne: I know. I know I burned the turkey last year. You don’t have to rub it in. I was willing to try again but nooo, we have to go to a restaurant because you don’t trust me! Admit it!

Quinn: I …

Yvonne: Don’t talk to me. I’m not talking to you.

Quinn looks out the window.

Yvonne: Don’t pout.

Quinn: I’m not …

Yvonne: Yes you are. I can tell by the way you’re looking out the window.

Quinn: What the …

Yvonne: (holds up palm) Don’t talk to me. And don’t pout. Let’s just get there and get this over with.

Quinn: (looks up to the front of the bus) It’s …

Yvonne: What part of “don’t talk to me” didn’t you understand?

Quinn: But …

Yvonne: Ugh! I’ve had enough of this. I’m walking the rest of the way. (gets up)

Quinn: (calls to her as she’s walking down the aisle) You’ll have to anyway! We just passed the stop!
