excerpt in eight:
I’m telling you for the first and last time, don’t direct me and, and don’t touch me; we’re lovers on stage only, I can act the part.”
Becca flipped through to the page of the script Chris referred to, reread the line and thought, “He’s right, the bastard, why is he always right?”
Becca has a short run on sentence monologue talking to her stage daughter about her deceased husband:
“Your father was a traveling salesman and when he’d come back after two weeks so horny, we never made it past the front door ’cause he’d drop his suitcase and his pants and when I sold his possessions I should’ve kept his, well, suitcase ’cause he kept a lot of toys for us in there.
daughter says: Oh, Mom.
