(Two women are seen, one knocking at the door, while the other is trying to pack a suitcase. Their names are not important in this scene - you'll see why. The woman knocking tries to open the door, turns the handle....it opens, She enters, irritated.)
A - Bicker! Bicker bicker bicker!
A - Bi...cker!
B - If that's what you think...BICKER!
A - What? Bicker bicker....with a bit of exposition thrown in ....
B- Respond briefly to the exposition with more bicker......and a pout that masks upset....
(A goes over to B, B stops packing and they hug)
B- Sob, sob!
A - There, there.....
B - Sob, sob....bicker, sob....
A - Oh, dear.....(quiet).....bicker....bicker...
B - Something related to the earlier exposition! Explaining! No bickering! Just loud, very LOUD!
(She slides to the floor)
B - Emotions! Emotions! And more emotions! And some tears, bravely held back....
A - Let me comfort you....
B - No, this is my big scene! More tears, more LOUD, lots of big EMOTIONS.....Angry, sad, confused!
B - Don't interrupt! Everyone will remember this scene!
A - But.....
B- (Yelling) I TOLD YOU THIS IS MY EMOTIONS....MY BIG MOMENT.....MY TURN FOR A PRIZE!
(A slaps B, she is stunned)
A - You get emotions, I get action! That was the deal! So we both get nominated! But I win.....action wins!
B - Emotions!
(A grabs B, shakes her)
A - Actions!
(B grabs A back they both shake each other around the stage, until B suddenly stops)
B - Time! Time to go!
(Pulls away and closes suitcase quickly, turns to leave, A tries to stop her)
A - Stop! More exposition! A little bicker.....
B- Respond to exposition by waving suitcase......answer bicker with more bicker......smile....
(They laugh for a moment)
A - I'll drive......
(They walk to the door, B looks back)
B- Really strong line to tie up the scene, but leaving door open to next scene.....bitter, but poignant....
A- Really poignant......but a little bitter....and then the topper to close.....
(They exit, as lights fade on scene 1. Many scene ones)
