Drommen and Phillipa

 

Phillipa: That was one hell of a night, Trigger.

Drommen: I know that’s the name of a horse, but it doesn’t do much for appearances when it comes to longevity.

Phillipa: Oh you’ve got that. At least after the first three times.

Drommen smiles self-satisfactorily.

Phillipa: And you make one hell of a breakfast.

Drommen: Thank you. What time do you get off work?

Phillipa: (shrugs) Later.

Drommen: Do you want to get together?

Phillipa: Already? Next thing you’ll be asking me to meet your family.

Drommen clasps his hands on his lap.

Phillipa: Cool it, Sport. I’ll give you a call sometime. (kisses him on the cheek. Whispers:) Thank you.

Phillipa gets off the bus.

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.

Brandon: Did Marissa accept your proposal?

Jordan: She wants to wait. See whether or not I get the scholarship. Obviously I didn’t tell her I already got it.

Brandon: Told ya.

Jordan: I don’t know what to fuckin’ do. On one hand I have this opportunity, and on the other …

Brandon: Wouldn’t she go with you?

Jordan: She wants to go to school up here.

Brandon: You could have a long distance relationship.

Jordan: That’s what I said. She still wants to wait.

Brandon: Sorry man.

Jordan: She also wants …

Brandon: What?

Jordan: To sleep together.

Brandon: Right on.

Jordan: But I said no.

Brandon: (stares) You said what? Are you crazy?

Jordan: No. I want to wait until we’re married.

Brandon: (after a moment of stunned silence) Might be a deal breaker man.

Jordan: Yeah, well. Too bad.

Brandon: (snorts) Good luck.
