PART 2 - "The Wrong People"

(PEGGY steps into the spotlight and now is in common street clothes [which actress wore under white robe]. PEGGY looks around into the darkness and sounds can be heard. Faint and unrecognizable at first. Then the sounds grow stronger. Lights come up across the stage on a 50’s style diner. 50’s music is heard now. Waitresses, bus boys, cooks, customers are in the diner. PEGGY watches from her spotlighted area) 

SONG: “Rock Around the Clock” by Bill Haley and his Comets 

ALICE 
(Older waitress who managers the diner) 
Clean up on table 7. 
(Looks around) 
Where is that girl? 

KATE 
(Rushes in. KATE is a teen about PEGGY’s age) 
Sorry. I’m on it. 

(Lights slowly fade on PEGGY) 

ALICE 
Where were you anyway? 

HEATHER 
(Snotty teen who is a customer sitting with friends) 
Watching Rick no doubt. 
(Her friends laugh) 

ALICE 
Rick? Who is Rick? 

KATE 
Nobody. 

HEATHER 
Nobody? He’s only the man of Kate’s dreams. 

KATE 
He is not. 

HEATHER 
You should see Kate when she’s around him. Serious puppy love. 

ALICE 
Hurry with that cleanup, Kate. I need you to go get a jar of pickles out of the pantry. 

HEATHER 
(As KATE comes near she drops something on the floor in front of her so she steps in it) Ooops. Better clean that up too, Kate. 

(Friends laugh and KATE looks upset and slowly bends down to clean it) 

PEGGY 
(Enters and helps KATE) 
Here, let me help you. 

KATE 
Thank you. 

PEGGY 
No problem. 
(They clean it up and stand) 
Hi, I’m… 
(Realizes she needs another name) 
Pamela. 

KATE 
I’m Kate. 

HEATHER 
And we’re hungry. Where’s the food, Kate? 

ALICE 
Hurry up with the pickles, Kate. 

KATE Okay. 

(KATE rushes off) 

HEATHER 
(Gets up and looks at PEGGY) 
So who are you? I haven’t seen you around before. 

PEGGY 
I’m new in town. I sort of dropped in. 

HEATHER 
Well, you better learn quickly who are the right people to hang out with and who are the wrong people. 
(KATE enters with jar and gives it to ALICE) 
That girl over there is the wrong people. 
(Points to friends) 
We, on the other hand, are the right people. 

(KATE comes with food for HEATHER and friends. HEATHER sits and looks at meal. ALICE exits) 

PEGGY 
So what makes someone the right people? 

HEATHER 
You know, the people with the right families, the right cars, the right friends… 
(Looks at food) 
Kate, what is this? I ordered Cheddar cheese not Swiss. I swear this place is run by a bunch of retards. 

(HEATHER eats it anyway) 

PEGGY 
Obviously, not the right personality. 

KATE 
I’m sorry, Heather. I’ll get you another one. 

HEATHER 
Look, I’ve been waiting here long enough. Now you’ve gone and ruined it. I’m not paying for it. 

KATE 
But Alice will take it out of my paycheck. 

HEATHER 
That’s what happens when you get the order wrong. 

PEGGY 
(Picks up ticket) 
Says here on the ticket that you ordered Swiss. 

KATE 
I swore you said Swiss. 

HEATHER 
(To friends) 
Girls? Did I say Swiss? 
(Friends shake heads no) 
See. I have witnesses. 

KATE 
Fine, Heather. Okay… 

(KATE exits upset. PEGGY gives HEATHER a dirty look and follows)
