At the closing time Jewel sits down at Ted’s table.

TED
Good. Now let’s have a serious
conversation. I am a free-
spirit. I don’t want to get
married or play house. I am okay
with you coming over once in a
while and having sex, but that
is where it has to end. I want
my freedom. I don’t want you
popping up everywhere I go. I
don’t want you waiting for me by
the door! What if I brought
another girl over and here you
are! No! I have your number, so
if I want to get together I’ll
call you.

Jewel looks sad.

JEWEL
What about lunch tomorrow? Do
you still want me to come over
for lunch?

TED
NO! That’s another thing;
nobody disturbs me at work! Do
you get that?

JEWEL
But you need a break…

TED
I like to work during break
most of the time so I can leave

earlier. Now, do we understand
each other?

JEWEL

Yes.

TED
Now if you want to come home
with me now you will have to
go home tonight.

JEWEL
Why can’t I leave in the
morning?

TED
For one thing, I don’t want
to be bothered trying to wake
you up when I am in a hurry
to leave, second, I don’t
sleep well with anyone else
in my bed. I really prefer to
sleep alone. These are my
conditions with girls. Take
it or leave it.

JEWEL
But that would mean I’d have
to walk through town in the
middle of the night. There
are no buses running at that
time.

TED
You don’t have to come over
right now. We can wait until you
have a night off and we can meet
then. See, I’m being nice and
caring right now, you should
appreciate that. I usually don’t
bother.

JEWEL
I’m coming over right now.

TED
Okay. But no trying to argue
with me later.

They leave together.
