(Lights up on Daphne already in bed, reading a book. Mark is taking off his watch and setting it on the nightstand on his side of the bed. He climbs in to bed.)
MARKSo, does your husband think you're working an extra shift at the hospital?
MARKMy wife think's I'm in Houston on business.
(They look at each other.)
MARK (continuing)Well, goodnight.
(They both turn off the lights near their sides of the bed. A moment later, Daphne's light turns back on.)
DAPHNEI think the passion's gone out of our affair.
MARKCan we talk about this in the morning?
(She turns off the light.)
