Yvonne and Quinn

 

Quinn: Are you nervous?

Yvonne: Of course. It’s not every day I get to tell my parents I’m pregnant over turkey dinner.

Quinn: Well, we were going to have to tell them eventually.

Yvonne: (stares at him) Do you have any idea how hard it’s going to be telling my mother she’s going to be a grandmother? She’ll probably drop dead in the stuffing.

Quinn: She’s really that obsessed about getting old?

Yvonne: You’ve met my mother, right?

Quinn: Yeah. Do you want me to tell your dad and then he can tell her after we’ve left?

Yvonne: That’s the coward’s way out.

They stare at each other for three seconds.

Both: Let’s do 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!
