Setting: Ben's apartment
(lights up, pallor of televison light splashing across Ben and Lyle's faces, they are seated on the floor next to each other, playing video games)
Lyle: Nice move.
Ben: Yeah... I got you though...
Lyle: (distracted from the video game, but still playing) Hey, Ben?
Lyle: Weren't we just doing something else?
Ben: What do you mean?
Lyle: We're playing video games, but...
(pause, video game playing continues throughout)
Lyle: Wasn't there...
Ben: Something else, you mean?
Lyle: We were playing video games, and there was something else.
Ben: Just playing video games, Lyle.
Lyle: Yeah, but something else?
Lyle: Playing... but there was... wasn't there something else?
Ben: (a little annoyed) No, man. Just play.
Lyle: I'm playing. What else were we doing though?
Ben: Just this game, Lyle.
Lyle: Yeah, this game, and something else. I know we were doing something else.
Ben: Nothing else, Lyle.
Lyle: This is really going to bug me; because I mean, I know there was something else that we were doing.
Ben: (picking up a joint, taking a hit) Here, just take a hit, maybe that'll spark your memory.
(recognition flashes over Lyle as he is handed the joint from Ben)
Lyle: (putting down video game contoller, taking the joint) Oh, yeah! This is it! (takes a hit) We were getting high.
Lyle: (taking another long, slow hit, then contemplating) Hey, Ben?
Lyle: Weren't we doing something else?
Ben: (frustrated sigh) No, man.
Lyle: Just getting high?
Ben: Just getting high and playing video games, Lyle. That's all.
Lyle: (putting down the joint, picking up the controller) Ohhhh, yeah... video games.
(lights fade out)
