         (The teenage girl is listening to the young man, shaking her head, very annoyed)

Why am I shaking my head?  Because it never ceases to amaze me how wrong math people can be!  I mean, you think just because you say something makes it true!  And then you have all kinds of crazy lines and arrows and letters and numbers mixed up together - which I think is actually a little bit weird - but the funniest part is.... you truly believe all this stuff!

Look at this whole routine about zero...I mean, how do you actually PROVE zero exists?  In your theory, zero is the absence of is nothing.....but nothing cannot exist, therefore, according to your logic, zero cannot exist!

Like this....if you have me, for example.....and I leave the room, for example.....

          (She turns to go, stops at the door)

Your theory would mean that nothing is here anymore.......but I was here, and I left behind a memory, didn't I?  You remember I was will always remember I was here......

          (She almost leaves, looks back)

Oh, maybe you are right, there is something  I guess that makes you...the zero.....

           (She exits as he watches.  End of scene)
