In drama monologue from “Delivery”, Kelly confesses the truth to a customer about how she tried to take money from them.
KELLY: I know you aren’t..well..and I started to come up with this plan; you eat pizza everyday; it’s how we met, ’cause I deliver it to you, and we’ve become, well, we’re friends…I mean, we should be friends. I should be loyal to ya as a friend, at this point. And, and I’ve seen where you keep your money when you pay me for the pizza, and it looks like a lot, at least for me, anyway. (sighs) So, I sort of made up this half true story; I mean, it’s real, but…it has lies in it, so you could feel bad for me, and it’s worked. You told me today that you’d give me an envelope filled with money to help me, ’cause you’re a kindhearted person, and now I am ashamed. I’m just ashamed of myself for thinkin’ ’bout takin’ the money off ya. Of, of trying to take advantage…I’m…it feels wrong. Watching you and seeing how good you are to me…I don’t even know why I’m telling you the truth..I don’t like this feeling of guilt all over me. I won’t, I can’t deliver your pizza anymore. I can’t do it. You need to find someone else to do it, and I do like you as a friend and all, you’ve been nice to talk to, and I wish you—I hope you get into that museum you told me about…I’m sorry, Salve.
