(Lights up on Marcia and Bill working at computers near one another.)
BILL (reading an e-mail)
Oh, man, Marcia, did you see this e-mail from Mr. Kessler?
Yeah. What’s up with that?
If he thinks I’m going to work on a Saturday for free he’s a fucking retard.
Bill. I really find that kind of language offensive.
Oh. I’m sorry. I meant freakin’ retard. Kessler’s a freakin’ retard.
Bill. It’s not the “F” word. It’s the “R” word. It’s very offensive.
It’s as bad as the “N” word.
Oh, okay. I’ll be more careful.
BILL (reading new e-mail)
Oh, man. Now, Kessler wants us to work both Saturday and Sunday. What a fuckin’ mentally disabled person.
(He smiles at Marcia, looking for approval. She gives him a faint smile and goes back to work.)
