           (Ariana and Isaac are finished practicing for the academic decathalon and are talking)

ISAAC -  So, let me get this straight, you don't believe in infinity?

ARIANA -  I didn't say that, I said there is no such thing as infinity.

ISAAC -  Same thing!

ARIANA -  So not!  One is a belief, the other is a fact.  Infinity is like the rest of math, all imagination, so, there's an end to it, like everything else.

ISAAC -  (Laughing)  I can't believe you said that!

ARIANA -   Because you don't believe what I said?

ISAAC -  Wait a minute, I think....I think I almost understood you.....

ARIANA -  So that's good, right?

ISAAC -  I'm not so sure.....a part of me wants to understand, but....maybe I'll never understand what you say....

ARIANA -  Well, that's no problem, because never is not infinite either!

ISAAC -  Of course it's infinite, it's like forever which means no end....and it's.....never!  As in, I will never understand....

ARIANA -  (Laughing back)  But never is an exact amount of time!  

ISAAC -  Do tell....

ARIANA -  I learned about never when I was a little girl.  You see,  my mother refused to go to Long's because someone made her mad, and she said she would never go again .....ever. And then, 10 years 3 months and 2 days later, she returned to Long's because they had a sale on styrofoam cups that was way cheaper than Kmart.  And my mother was getting married again and needed cups and she was on a budget and .....weddings will do that to people. So, that's how I learned..... never is exactly 10 years 3 months and 2 days - according to my mother who actually denied that she had ever said she would never shop at Long's again - and this was after she returned to shopping there.

            (She stops and takes a deep breath)

ARIANA -  10 years, 3 months and 2 days.  Never. 

            (She turns to leave)

ISAAC -  Well, thank you for clarifying that.

ARIANA -  When I have the exact date for infinity, will let you know.....

           (Blackout.  End of scene)
