PART 8 - "Closing Up Alone"

SONG: “Angel Baby” by Rosie Hamlin 

(Lights come up on KATE in diner with ALICE) 

KATE 
Goodnight, Alice. 

ALICE 
You sure you’re okay closing up alone? 

KATE 
It’s not a problem. 
(Smiles) 
You have a date tonight. 

ALICE 
(A little embarrassed) 
Nosey, aren’t we? 

KATE 
Sorry. Have fun with… whatever you’re doing? 

ALICE 
Thanks. Goodnight. 
(Exits and KATE is alone cleaning up) 

HEATHER 
(Enters with friends) 
So girls, who is our conquest for this week? 
(Looks outside) 
What about Rick? 
(Looks at KATE) 
Oh, but that’s right. Kate loves Rick doesn’t she? 

KATE 
Can I get you something, Heather? We’re closing soon. 

HEATHER 
(Looks around) 
Hey, did Alice leave you here all alone? Just you and Ricky boy out there all alone. Why is he always sitting out there anyway? 

KATE 
This is the last place he was before he was in that car accident. It was the last time he saw his girlfriend alive. 

HEATHER 
(Sarcastic) 
How tragic. Poor Ricky boy all dark and brooding about his loss. Maybe he could use someone like me to cheer him up. That okay with you, Kate? 

KATE 
(Trying not to get angry) 
Do you want some sodas? 

HEATHER 
I know you’ve got it bad for him. I see you out there giving him free sodas and fries. 
(Knocks some cups on the floor) 

KATE 
I just cleaned the floor. 

HEATHER 
Oh, dear. Clumsy me. 
(Knocks some straws on the floor. Her friends laugh and do the same) 

KATE 
Please stop. 

HEATHER 
(Starts tossing napkins) 
What are you going to do? Get your boyfriend to stop me? 

(HEATHER and friends start trashing the place) 

KATE 
No, don’t. 

HEATHER 
Oh, look. Special order for Kate. 
(Throws some food on KATE) 
Want some ketchup with that? 
(Squirts KATE with ketchup. 

KATE 
(stands there and starts to cry) 
Night, Heather. Been fun. 

(HEATHER and her friends laugh and exit) 

RICK 
(Enters) 
Kate? 
(Sees her) 
Are you okay? What happened? 

KATE 
(Crying) 
Nothing. 

RICK 
I could see Heather and her friends messing up the place from my car. Did they hurt you?

KATE 
No. 

RICK 
I’ll help you clean up. 

KATE 
No, it’s okay. 

RICK 
Do you want to call the police? I’m a witness. 

KATE 
No, we can’t. Heather’s parents will really let us have it if we do that. 

RICK 
I’m not afraid of her parents. 

KATE 
But Alice is. They could have Alice shut down.

RICK 
I guess they could. It’s not fair is it? 

KATE 
No… 

RICK 
Some people have all the power and the rest of us have to suffer so they can have it. I guess that’s why we suffer. We’re meant to suffer. We’re the bungled and they botched. 

KATE 
The what? 

RICK 
(Helps KATE clean up) 
I’ve been reading Nietzsche. He says most people are the bungled and the botched, going through life suffering. Heather and her family are the Uberminche. The super race. 

KATE 
That sounds like Hitler. 

RICK 
Hitler studied Nietzsche too. 

KATE 
Well, Hitler wouldn’t be in here helping me clean up. 

RICK 
I never said I liked it or agreed with it. 
(Smiles and helps her with cleaning up food off her face) 
Beside, us bungled and botched need to stick together. 

KATE 
Thanks, Rick… for helping. 

RICK 
Any time. 
(Pause. They look at each other a moment) 
I like to help out nice people and you’re nice people. 

KATE 
Thanks, Rick. 

RICK 
Can I get you anything else? 

KATE 
No, that’s fine. I can get the rest. 

RICK 
See ya, Kate. 

(KATE smiles and goes back to cleaning as lights fade on diner
