"A Little Private"

PART 9

Scene 2

(Later that evening)

LUKE
(Rushing around. Steps on something)  
Aw! Another crayon!  I'll never get this place clean.  
Mrs. Poke will think I'm running a pig stye.   
(Steps on another crayon)  
Aw!  Die evil crayon.   
(Stomps it)  
I feel much better now.    I hope everything is okay in here.  
I want it to be comfortable for her.   
(Pulls out something from the school)
But I want it to look like a school.   
(Pulls out something else from the school)    
A really good school.  
(Pulls out more)  
Now it's a mess again.  
(Cleans up)  
Music.  That's what we need.   
(Turns on.  Tunes.   Hard rock)    
Too loud.  
(Tunes.  Easy listening.  Dances to it funny)   
Ew!  Not that.   
(Tunes .  70's   Bee Gees.  Does a Saturday Night Fever impression)   
I can feel the polyester already.  
(Tunes)  
There must be something Mrs. Poke would like.   
(Tunes.   Gets Simon and G.  "Mrs. Robinson.")  
No.  Not good.   
(Tunes.  Classical)   
Not too loud.  Not too soft.  Not too suggestive.  And to quote that famous philosopher Goldylocks, "It is just right.” (Knock at door)   
Here she is.   Breathe, Luke, breathe.  
(Goes for door)   
Coming.   
(Opens door.  Mrs. Poke is in a sexy outfit)  
Uh, hi.

POKE
Well, hello there.  How's my little school master?

LUKE
Great.  Great.  Very successful first week.

POKE
It doesn't look like they did too much damage.

LUKE
Ran smooth as a baby's behind.  No major problems at all.

POKE
I heard my nephew was a handful though.  Did he really try to bungee jump out the window?

LUKE
Oh, no.  Of course not.  He was seeing how many rubber bands would support a stuffed animal.

POKE
I heard he also wanted to try it on a first grader.

LUKE
He was only joking around.  What a sense of humor.

POKE
His other schools didn't think so.  I'm so glad there's a place where he can explore and find his own way.

LUKE
He certainly is doing that.

POKE
You must be a wonderful influence on him.  
(Moves in)  
So loving.  So caring.  So giving.

LUKE
So where are we going for dinner?

POKE
(Takes off sweater or jacket)  
I'm not hungry...for dinner.

LUKE
(Nervous)
Oh.

POKE
Let's get to know each other a little better.  
(Sits)  
Come sit down.
(LUKE sits far away)  
No, over here where I can see you.  
(He sits by her and she moves closer)

LUKE  
So what do you want to know?

POKE
Little things.  Things people can't always see.  I want to see what's under that cool exterior.  I want to know your secrets, your desires...

LUKE
I've always wanted to go parachuting.

POKE  
Would you like to know what I want?

LUKE
(Jumps up)  
Yes, and why don't you tell me over dinner.  I am so hungry.  I didn’t have anything to eat today. I know this great place down the street.  Lots of people go there.  It's always crowded, full of people.  Lots of action.  Lots of fun.  Great place to get to know someone.

POKE
(Pulls him down)  
I hate crowds.

LUKE  
Mrs. Poke?

POKE
Yes?

LUKE
Is this a little more than a business meeting?  Because if it is...

POKE
It is... much more...

LUKE
Much more?

POKE
Much, much more.
