What You Buy
Setting: Bedroom, in bed, post-coital.
Rex: You think they're still asleep?
Marsha: The kids?
Rex: Even after all that screaming?
Marsha: Was I screaming?
Rex: Yes! A lot!
Marsha: Sorry, honey!
Rex: What's there to be sorry for?
Marsha: It just hasn't been that good for a while.
Rex: Gee, thanks!
Marsha: No! Don't do that! You know what I mean.
Rex: Not sure.
Marsha: It was my mindset, you know; it was me.
Rex: Well, you were awfully good.
Marsha: Thank you.
(sound of a toilet flushing, enter Elaine in a night shirt)
Elaine: You two about done? I need to get to bed.
Rex: Sure thing, Elaine!
Marsha: (sitting up in bed, getting out and putting something on) When will I see you again?
Rex: (getting out of bed, getting some clothes on) I imagine that'll depend on the wife, here.
Marsha: $200 this time.
Rex: I think that's what we agreed on.
(Marsha grabs purse, pulls a bunch of bills out, hands them to Rex, Rex grabs them while slipping on his shirt)
Marsha: There you are.
Rex: Thanks. I'll just let myself out.
(Rex exits, waving good-bye, lights start fading)
Elaine: (getting into bed as Marsha gets back into bed) Do you have to scream so much? You're going to wake the kids.
Marsha: (snuggling up to Elaine, kissing her on the shoulder) Sorry, honey.
