(Lights up on Rob stepping out of a door into an alley. He wears a business suit. He takes out a pack of cigarettes and lights up. A moment later, Jennifer, in a woman’s business outfit, steps in to the alley. )
ROBHey, Jennifer. Haven’t seen you in, like, ages.
(Jennifer lights a cigarette. It seems like her first in a long time. She is really savoring it.)
JENNIFER (continuing)It’s been a long time.
ROBDid you lose weight? You look great.
JENNIFERI did. I dropped about 35 pounds.
ROBWow. Well, you look great. How’d you do it?
JENNIFERI got cancer.
(Long awkward pause.)
Well, you look great.
(They continue smoking. Lights fade.)
