Madigan and Ken
Madigan: Do you really think we should be seen in public like this?
Ken: Why not? I’m your brother-in-law. We met on the street outside your work and now we’re going…
Madigan: Right. Where do we say we’re going again?
Ken: For a coffee.
Madigan: On a bus? Everyone knows there’s always a Tim Horton’s within walking distance to anywhere downtown.
Ken: Don’t worry about it. We’re not going to be seen by anyone who knows us anyway.
Madigan sighs and looks out the window.
Ken: Do you want to go back?
Ken: You said yourself it’s not safe to get together at your place anymore. So what choice do we have?
Madigan: (mumbles) We could stop seeing each other.
Ken: (puts his hand on her knee) Did you say you want to stop seeing each other?
Madigan: I just don’t want to get caught. Barb is my sister… my only sister. And what am I teaching Missy?
Ken: You’re teaching her to follow her heart.
Madigan: How? When I’m not following mine? All I’m doing is following your cock.
Ken: Fine, let’s get off the bus then.
Ken: (frowns) Maddie, you’ve got to decide what the fuck you want, coz I’m getting confused.
Madigan: (glares at him) Why don’t you decide what the fuck YOU want? Do you want me or my sister?
Ken: You know I want you.
Madigan: When are you going to leave her?
Ken: I can’t, you know that.
Madigan stares out the window.
Ken: What do you want to do? Right now I mean. Do you want to go to the hotel?
Madigan: (nods) I hear self-flagellation is good for the soul.
