Note: Strong language

Tuesday, March 27th, 5:00pm
Betty and Karla

 

Betty: What did the doctor say?

Karla: (mumbles, looking at her phone) Not much.

Betty: Well, he must have said something. I don’t know why you won’t let me come in with you any more.

Karla: (mumbles, not looking up) S’personal.

Betty: Your problem’s not that personal. I made the appointment for you. Did he tell you to take anything? A laxative maybe?

Karla: No fucking way!

Betty: Are you talking to me or the phone?

Karla: (texts madly) Phone. No, the doctor didn’t tell me to take anything.

Betty: Well have you had a movement?

Karla: (texting) I move around all the time.

Betty: No, a movement. A mooovement.

Karla: (still texting) What are you, a cow?

Betty: No, I mean have you had a poo!

Karla: (looks up for the first time) MOM! Jeez! (goes back to texting) Do you live to embarrass me, or what?

Betty: (mumbles) At least I know how to get your attention now.

Amy-Sue and Billy

 

Amy-Sue: Nobody “gets” me.

Billy: I do.

Amy-Sue: How can you? I just moved here from Backwater-Hellville – I’ve practically never even seen a bus before…

Billy: But you’re the same as me inside.

Amy-Sue: …and you’re in the Geek Club.

Billy: I can quit.

Amy-Sue: What good would that do? (slumps in her seat) I’m never going to fit in.

Billy: (swallows hard) I wanna help.

Amy-Sue: How?

Billy: I can teach you stuff.

Amy-Sue: Yeah? Like what?

Billy: Like, how to play RPGs and stuff.

Amy-Sue: And make me a geek? That’s even worse!

Billy: (shrugs) Or I could quit.

Sean (and Hillary)

 

Sean: (looks out window) Holy shit, man, did you see that? (glances over at Hillary in the seat across the aisle) Come and see this, seriously!

Hillary crosses the aisle and kneels beside Sean to look out the window.

Sean: That car just totally T-boned that other car.

Hillary: (whispers) Holy shit.

Sean: That was awesome.

Hillary: Huh.

Hillary backs toward the aisle.

Sean: Hey, I’m going to a party, wanna go?

Hillary: (sits beside Sean) Where is it?

Sean: In my fucking pants!

Hillary starts to get up.

Sean: No, wait, I’m kidding. It’s at a friend’s place. Hey aren’t you that girl in school? The one whose locker got burned for drugs last week?

Hillary: (sitting) They weren’t mine.

Sean: Riiiiight. I’m Sean. You’re Hillary, right?

Hillary: (nods) Whose house is the party at? Maybe I know him.

Sean: Her. It’s a her. She’s my girlfriend, but I think she’d like you.

Hillary stares at him.

Sean: She’s fucking great in bed.

Hillary continues to stare.

Sean: What? You fuckin’ in or not?

Hillary: Got any dope?
