Sylvester: I know.

Harry: So, you going out on the prowl tonight?

Sylvester: Thinking about it. Wanna come?

Harry: Nah, chicks aren’t my thing these days.

Sylvester: (regarding him closely) I thought you were over Ththally.

Smiley: Nice puppy you’ve got there, eh?

Rachael: (turns to him) What … are you talking about?

Smiley: (points to her lap) Your puppy.

Rachael: (looks down, turns up palms) I don’t have a puppy.

Smiley: What’s that then?

Rachael: I don’t have anything.

Smiley: (smiling) Pretend, eh?

Rachael: No. (turns away and looks out the window)

Smiley: You know, if you act like that, your puppy’s gonna bite you.

Drommen (and Edward)

 

Drommen sits at the window. Edward takes the seat beside him.

Drommen: What the hell are you doing back?

Edward: I’ve decided to forgive you.

Drommen: (laughs) You’re joking.

Edward: No. I’ve forgiven you because it’s obvious you’re not trying to kill me. Not like some people.

Drommen: I don’t want to kill you. I just want you and your plastic fangs and your sparkles off my bus.

Edward: (hisses, showing his plastic teeth) They’re not plastic. They’re all mine.

Drommen: I have no doubt they’re yours. Where’d you buy them from – Dollarama?

Edward: I got them from the dentist. After someone knocked my real fangs out.

Drommen: Your real fangs?

Edward: His name was van Helsing. Do you know him?

Drommen: Yeah, I know him. He was from Dracula.

Edward: Dracula? No way. Dracula was a myth. I’m the real thing.

Drommen: Pfft. You’re just a teeny-bopper wannabe.

Edward: I am not! Do you want me to bite your neck and prove it?

Drommen: (glares for a moment) You. Wouldn’t. Dare.

Edward stares, uncertain. He stands, holding the skirt of his trenchcoat up to cover the lower part of his face. He hisses, then runs to the door to dramatically wait for the next stop.

Candice and Sandi

 

Candice: I can’t believe you’re coming back to work.

Sandi: Yeah, hell, I’ve got to make a living, right?

Candice: Doesn’t the preacher make enough?

Sandi: Jeff’s suspended from work.

Candice: (looking shocked) Because you guys got married?

Sandi: Yep. Apparently him marrying someone who worked in a dungeon is too much for the church to handle.

Candice: So what is he gonna do?

Sandi: Take it to the higher-up.

Candice: You mean …

Sandi: Yep, the big guy himself.

Candice: Damn.

Sandi: Let’s hope not.

Wanda: Mind your own business.

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.
