Sean: Friggin’ hot out there today, man.

Thelma starts to cry.

Sean: What? What did I say?

Thelma: (digs a tissue out of her purse and blows her nose) Nothing. It’s not you. My acting coach just told me I’m not funny.

Sean laughs heartily.

Thelma: Stop it! Why are you laughing at me?

Sean: (settles down to a chuckle) Just trying to help.

Thelma: You’re an asshole.

Sean: I get that a lot.

Sean (and Drommen)

 

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

Drommen: Where’s Jessica?

Sean: I don’t know who you’re talking about.

Drommen: Okay Hillary. Whatever you call her, where is she?

Sean: I don’t know.

Drommen: (grabs Sean by the collar) Look, asshole, if you fuck her up I’m …

Sean: (smiles) Gonna what, show me your dick? You should be in jail.

Drommen: (releases him) You’re one to talk. What have you been giving her?

Sean: Drugs. Whatever. She’s better off with me than she is with you. You just make her miserable. At least I show her a good time.

Drommen: She was so messed up yesterday, she couldn’t see straight. Stay out of her life. Because if I find out you’ve hurt her or allowed her to hurt herself, you’re going to wind up hurt.

Sean: It’s you she’s killing herself for, man.

Drommen: She needs help. If you care about her at all you’ll get her some.

Sean: What, like you helped her?

Drommen: (grabs him again and thinks about it for a moment, then lets go) You’re not worth it.

Drommen changes seats.

Kyra (and Sean)

 

Kyra sits at the window. Sean takes the seat beside her.

Kyra: Oh God, not you again.

Sean: Yep. Me again.

Kyra: Well at least I won’t have to worry about seeing you for a while. I’m flying down to see my gramma in Florida.

Sean: Hope you’re in good shape.

Kyra: What for?

Sean: Ever been on a plane before?

Kyra: Nope. First time.

Sean: ‘Coz you’ve gotta flap your arms or the plane won’t take off.

Kyra: Bullshit.

Sean: Seriously. If everyone doesn’t flap their arms, the plane won’t leave the ground. All part of cost cutting and energy environmental crap. It was on the news.

Kyra stares at him.

Sean: Ask anyone.

Kyra turns away, squeezing her arm muscles discretely as she looks out the window.

Kyra (and Sean)

 

Kyra sits at the window, rocking. Sean takes the seat beside her.

Sean: Are you okay?

Kyra: I gotta pee.

Sean: (reaches into his pocket) I got a plastic bag here if you wanna go in that.

Kyra: Are you nuts? I’m not peeing in a plastic bag.

Sean: Suit yourself. (reaches into the other pocket and pulls out a bottle of water) Want some?

Kyra gives him a dirty look.

Sean: (takes the cap off the bottle and drinks loudly) Man! That’s good!

Kyra: You’re a real asshole.

Sean: (offers her the bag again) You sure?

Kyra: (mumbling and rocking, looking out the window) I hate this fucking bus.

Hillary (and Sean)

 

Hillary sits at the window, looking at an iPad. Sean takes the seat beside her.

Sean: Whatcha got there?

Hillary: Jake gave it to me.

Sean: Ooooh, things are escalating. He found out what a great cocksucker you are, huh?

Hillary: Why do you have to be so crude? And no, I didn’t suck his cock. He just gave it to me ‘coz he likes me.

Sean: He’s expecting it though. No guy gives things away without expecting something in return.

Hillary: No, that’s just you.

Sean: Pfft. Wait and see.

Hillary: No YOU wait and see. Jake’s a gentleman. You’re just a dick.

Sean: HA! A gentleman who plays with himself on the bus. HA!

Hillary: Shut up. He doesn’t do that anymore.

Sean: That’s what you think.

Drew (and Sean)

 

Drew sits at the window. Sean takes the seat beside him.

Drew: Have you ever wondered at the delicacy of the connection we have with society on the world wide web?

Sean: No.

Drew: Think about it. We’ve become so reliant on this service, this technology. And yet it is what it is: a web. Strong and yet so precarious. We stomp along the spokes, hopping around what is essentially the world, and yet what if it should break?

Sean: Snail mail?

Drew: Indeed. You’re very smart, young man. Where do you get all that intellectual prowess from?

Sean: (shrugs) I saw a street address on the back of a cereal box once, for people who don’t have the internet.

Drew: Really?

Sean: Count Chocula, I think.

Drew: Fascinating.
