Captain Longsight (and Zoey)
Captain Longsight sits at the window. Zoey takes a seat beside him.
Captain Longsight: (pulls binoculars from bag and peers through them out the window) Holy Shamoly!
Captain Longsight: There’s a crime going on down that sidestreet!
Zoey: (holds hand out expectantly for the binoculars) Can I see?
Captain Longsight: There’s no way you can see it.
Zoey: Of course I can the bus isn’t going anywhere.
Captain Longsight: It’s not that. It’s just I have amazing powers of being able to see long distances.
Zoey: (laughs) Of course you can. You have binoculars.
Captain Longsight: Oh these? (holds up binoculars) These don’t matter. I’m Captain Longsight. I was born with extraordinary powers of farsightedness.
Zoey: Soo… why do you carry binoculars?
Captain Longsight: Well… You wouldn’t understand.
Zoey: Try me.
Captain Longsight: They were a gift.
Zoey: Kinda like your gift of farsightedness?
Captain Longsight: N0! Like a birthday gift.
Zoey: Huh. So, Captain Longsight, do you fight crime with your superpowers?
Captain Longsight: (pulls cell phone out of pocket and smiles) No, I call the cops!
Zoey: Hooray. (changes seats)
