JOE Well…I, uh…I hope to get into medical school.
ALEX (Her up-tempo dialogue contrasts with JOE’s awkward speech) Oh, a doctor, Yeah. I heard that’s a good payin’ job. I kinda always wanted to be a nurse, but I didn’t do too well at school. But its okay. I got a job. Not a good job, but it’s a job. And I get tips too. Cept a course, with them deadbeats. I(ndicating the six at the other table. She suddenly gets serious) You don’t think I’m stupid, do ya?
JOE (Taken aback by the directness of the question) What?
ALEX Do ya think I’m stupid? You know just another dumb waitress in a dead-end job?
JOE (Has no idea) Uh…no.
ALEX (Challenging him) How bout pretty? Do ya think I’m pretty? You’re blushin’, ain’t ya? Don’t tell nobody, but I stole you that last piece a cherry pie. (Pushing it toward him) It’d be a shame to see it go to waste.
JOE (Pushing it away) Won’t you, uh…won’t you get into trouble?
ALEX Old Peter would skin me alive if he found out.
PETE Alex! These dishes ain’t gonna clean themselves!
ALEX (Leans toward him) But let this be our lil secret. (Pushes pie back toward JOE) Enjoy.
ALEX For chrissakes Pete, we’re tryin' to have ourselves an intelligent conversation here! Sumthin’ you wouldn’t know nuthin’ about!
Alex! I’m not payin’ you for your conversations. Get back here and see to these dishes!
