Bill, 40s
Ray, 40s
Counter Girl, 16

(Lights up on Bill and Ray standing in line at a fast food restaurant.)

RAY
Must be hard being a vegetarian.

BILL
No, not really. Even places like this have vegetarian options.

COUNTER GIRL
Welcome to Burger World. What would you like today?

BILL
I’ll have the Veggie Burger with Cheddar-like Cheese and Fake-n and a Vanilla Soy Shake.

COUNTER GIRL
Would you like baked fries or organic carrot sticks with that?

BILL
Ooh, organic carrot sticks.

COUNTER GIRL
That will be $13.75.

BILL
Okay, just a sec –

(Bill starts fishing through his wallet.)

COUNTER GIRL
Can I take your order?


RAY
Sure. I’ll have the gallon bucket of crispy veal nuggets with dippin’ sauce, a jumbo order of curly spicy fries, chocolate shake – make it a small - and a hot fried apple pie dessert treat.

COUNTER GIRL
That’ll be 4.99.

BILL
Can I change my order?

COUNTER GIRL
What would you like?

BILL
Something dead, fried, maybe throw some butter on it.

COUNTER GIRL
4.99.

(Blackout.)
