A Little Private Education Part 4 "Quit My Job" scene for 3 actors - 1 female 2 males

"A Little Private Education"

PART 4

PEG
Speaking of work.  I quit my job today.
(She cheers)

LUKE
Why?  What for?  You can’t quit.   You need a job.

PEG
I hated at that copy place.  It was making me miserable.  I was having dreams about it.  I keep dreaming about the machine that kept making copies of my boss and they all kept following me around and pinching me.   

LUKE
Does he really pinch you?

PEG
Yes… and I swore I’d either quit or do something to him next time he did it.

LUKE
I’m glad you decided to quit then.

PEG
Actually I did both.

LUKE
Oh, no.   What did you do?

PEG
I pretend one of the copiers was broken and then I helped him get his tie stuck.

LUKE
Oh, man.  Peg.

PEG
And I gave him a good pinch… unfortunately he liked that part.

LUKE
You have a sad fantasy life, Peg.

PEG
That's why I need another job.

LUKE
It could be worse.  You could work for a plumber and dream that you're being flushed down a toilet over and over.

PEG
Or I could just come here and be a part of a living nightmare.

(PLUM reenters)

LUKE
I can’t believe you quit at Sir Prints a Lot.  I love that place.   Everyone dressed up in medieval costumes.   

PEG
You just like the low cut costumes we have to wear.    

PLUM
I hate that place.   A bunch of geeks hanging out pretending to make copies so they can look at the pretty girls that creep hires.
(Exits)

PEG
I think I'm in love.

LUKE
With Mr. Plumber?  Can you image how he probably smells at the end of the day?

PEG
You're sick.

LUKE
You're desperate.

PEG
He's cute.

LUKE
(A flush is heard)
That was fast.  My bank account is saved.

PLUM
All done.

LUKE
Great.

PEG
(Aside to LUKE)
Offer him something to drink.

LUKE
He'll probably charge me for the time.  No.

PLUM
(Hands over bill)
There you go.
(PLUM makes eyes at PEG)

LUKE
100 dollars!  Two hours!

PLUM
Service charge and travel time.

LUKE
That's a lot of money.  Have big plans tonight?
(Goes for check book)

PLUM
Not yet.

LUKE
How about I give you my sister tonight and we'll call it even?

PEG
(Slugs LUKE)
Luke!

LUKE
I was only joking.   She’s not worth that much.
(PEG slugs him)


PEG
Can I offer you something to drink?

PLUM
You sure can.

PEG
Wait here and I'll get it.

(Exits L)
