97. Scenes from the Second Seat on the Right

Saturday, December 6th, 9:00pm
Jade (and Doug)


Jade sits by the window. Doug takes a seat beside her.

Jade: (staring at Doug) What are you, a stripper or something?

Doug: (looks down at himself and then at her, confused) No, I’m a fireman.

Jade: (snorts) Do you wear your uniform all the time?

Doug: No, only when I’m going to a fire.

Jade: (smiling) You’re going to a fire… on a bus?

Doug: Yes. It’s raging as we speak.

Jade: (laughs) Where?

Doug: Downtown. (strains to look at the bus driver) Can you hurry it up?

Jade: Seriously?

Doug: (to the bus driver) There’s a fire downtown. You don’t want to be responsible for people dying, do you?

Jade: Hey! He can’t go any faster. There’s traffic.

Doug: And why do you think there’s so much traffic? There’s a fire!

Jade: (laughs) You’re a stripper, aren’t you.

Doug: I’m not a stripper. I’m a fireman. And there’s a fire.

Jade: Well then why don’t you run? You’d go faster than this bus is.

Doug: That would be violating my … fire code regulations.

Jade: What “fire code regulations”?

Doug: It states that I must arrive at the fire in a city-owned vehicle. I missed the fire truck so I’m on a bus.

Jade: (stares at him for a moment) I’ll give you twenty bucks if you drop trou.

Doug: (hesitates) Make it fifty and you’re on.


Next stop: Sunday December 7th 10:00am
