Michael (and Joanna)
Michael sits by the window reading the newspaper. Joanna sits beside him.
Michael: (rolls eyes but doesn’t look up) Hi.
Joanna: What’s that you’re reading?
Michael: The paper.
Joanna: What’s going on?
Michael: (sighs) Apparently some guy went into all the discos in town and broke the mirror balls.
Joanna: I didn’t know there were any discos in town.
Michael: Neither did I. (he turns to her) Hey, do you read the paper?
Joanna: Sometimes, why?
Michael: (smiles) I’ve been waiting for someone to come along who’d just sit and, you know, read.
Joanna: (grins) I can read.
Michael hands her a section of his paper.
Joanna commences to read out loud.
Michael closes his section of the paper and stares out the window.
