I would make a similar statement but you’re the only one I know who cares about quality theater. Lima doesn’t deserve us.
Maybe we can foster a greater appreciation for the arts by continuing to expose them to our talent.
First off, I am honored to have been your lead for this period of time and to display my talents to the entirety of Lima. It was a long, hard road getting there, but I’m confident that all of our effort paid off tremendously. If you simply cannot get enough of my acting prowess—or, if, like some people, you never made it to Oklahoma! in the first place—have no fear, because come springtime, I’ll be dazzling the Lima community theater stage once again. Thanks to everybody who helped make my work a success! I won’t forget you soon.
Really? I mean, yeah, that would be okay. It’s not like I have anything better to do, most of the time.
Excellent. I’m sure things will go perfectly with two people on the job as opposed to one.
Not irrelevant. We still gave Lima theatergoers an unforgettable experience. But it will be strange not to have somewhere to go most nights.
I mean…you’re welcome to accompany me on my patrols once my schedule goes back to something a little bit more normal. I should be out and about during what would have been rehearsal time.
We’re officially two-thirds of the way through the run.
I’m going to miss it.
It is strange to think that all of our hard work is going to be irrelevant so soon…
Who said either of us were young? When you get to be this old none of that matters.
All I said was that it isn’t an unreasonable conclusion. I accept that it wasn’t a correct conclusion, what more are you looking for?
To who exactly?
Two…unrelated young people of the opposite sex living in close quarters undeniably inspires a certain image, okay?
Yeah, of course not.
I’m still here should you wish to be friendly again. But I’m not going to sit back and let you berate me.
You’re not a homewrecker, if that’s what you’re afraid of.
Things never end well for the homewrecker, I know that. It’s my career and reputation that would be destroyed and stigmatized as a result. I’m just covering my bases.
Dead isn’t my type, small obnoxious one.
I don’t know that, it was a logical conclusion.
