Animal Boys

In this short serio-comedic scene, “Animal Boys”, Dev shows up at Isabel’s home to see if she wants to go out on a date with him.

Animal Boys


DEV knocks on the door, steps back and waits.  ISABEL opens the door.

DEV:  Where’s Pete?

ISABEL:  He’s not here.

DEV:  He’s not here? Where is he?

ISABEL:  How should I know? I’m not his mother.

DEV:  Well, you starting to look like it.

ISABEL:  Go rot somewhere, wanker.

DEV:  No, really. I actually came to see you, not Pete.

ISABEL:  What do you want then?

DEV:  Was wondering if you wanted to go with me?

ISABEL:  Don’t like boys.

DEV:  What do you mean?

ISABEL:  I like girls. Got a problem with that?

DEV:  You a dyke then?

ISABEL:  I like women, a**hole.

DEV:  Really? Since when?

ISABEL:  Since you just asked me to go with you.

DEV:  Wait a minute, are you –

ISABEL:  Look, I’m getting ready now, Pete’s not here, pi** off and stop wastin’ my time.

DEV:  What’s your problem?

ISABEL:  I don’t have a problem. What’s your problem?

DEV:  Don’t you know how to talk nice?

ISABEL:  Depends who I’m talking to.

DEV:  I’m not nice enough to talk nice to?


DEV:  What defines nice for you?

ISABEL:  Nice. Here’s what’s nice. Money.  You got money, Dev? You’re working at your father’s shop, which in fact is closing down soon, I’m sure, because nobody ever goes to buy anything from him, cause he’s a dirty old man who’s rude and nasty to his customers.

Bet you walked to get here, which means you don’t drive, which means you don’t have no car, which means you’re pathetic ’cause you’re stuck in your own radius. Your hair is always sh’t brown dry and is already receding, and I don’t date baldies. You have no education and your clothes are always the same…old, innit?

You have no ambitions, and you’re lazy. I’ve known you since I was five, and you are more like a brother than a lover.

DEV:  So you’re a gold digger then, yeah?

ISABEL:  Look where I live.
