Plan B monologue from Somebody Famous

“PLAN B”
by D. M. Larson

MACY
You could drop one of those theatre lights up there on her. Those guards would sure scramble then.

We’ll call that plan B.

You sure we can’t drop that on her just for fun?

I guess I don’t want to become a red shirt… red’s not my color.

What’s the point of escaping? My time is almost up and if I ran Gussie and I couldn’t…

...Gussie made me promise not to tell anyone about his proposal...

I just realized that I can’t even shop for my own ring. Parole violation.

And I hate shopping online.
Online, catalogs… that’s like pure torture… I have to touch diamonds. See them sparkle.

I saw this wedding dress once that sparkled like diamonds. It was an outdoor wedding and the sun lit her up… Oh, it was the most beautiful thing I’ve ever seen. I need that dress!

And they can play my favorite song at wedding as I am walking like a giant diamond to Gus…

(MACY is lost in some fantasy and starts singing)

“Diamonds are a girls… best… friend…”
.
(MACY snaps out of it)

Please don’t tell him I told you.
