(Setting : Outside, in front of an apartment building door. Night time.)
LUCY: Would you like to come up for a nightcap?
RON: What time is it?
LUCY: Eleven thirty.
RON: Wow, thatís late.
LUCY: No itís not. The night is young!
RON: Iíve got work tomorrow
LUCY: Where do you work?
RON: The Archer Building, 43rd avenue. Itís a long journey from where I live, so I have to leave early to get there on time
LUCY: Well thatís great! 43rd avenue is just 5 minutes walk from here. You donít even have to go home.
RON: Where will I stay if I donít go home?
LUCY: My apartment.
RON: where will I sleep?
LUCY: We can make room for you.
RON: Iím ok, itís not too late, I can still make it home and have a good nights sleep.
LUCY: Donít be silly, Itís late, itís dark. How would I feel if you were mugged and killed on the way home? You must stay the night, for your own safety.
RON: Donít worry about me, I go to the gym every morning before work and then swim ten miles at the pool in the evenings.
LUCY: Oh... Really? (Smiles)
RON: Um. Do I smell like onions to you?
LUCY: Donít worry about it, I do too. We ate the same thing.
RON: Oh damn, I feel like an idiot.
LUCY: Whatís wrong?
RON: I forgot to give Whiskers some food before I left, heíll be hungry.
LUCY: You have a cat?
RON: Yeah, a Scandinavia Longhair Felix
LUCY: I havenít heard of that type before.
RON: Theyíre very rare. Get very angry when hungry.
LUCY: Me too.
LUCY: Oh I love cats, I have one upstairs. I call him Chairman Meow. Would you like to meet him?
RON: Well IĖ
LUCY: Marvellous! (Unlocks door to apartment, gently pushes RON in) Sheíll love to see you.
RON: "she?" I thought it was a "he.."
LUCY: (hurriedly) Yes yes, quite right.
(Door shuts behind them. Lights Fade)
