A 2 woman comedy scene from the 1 act play script Lunch With the Enemy about co-workers getting in the way of one another.
TARA: I need a drink.
ELLA: Call me selfish, but I have been lonely, Tara. My life has become nothing more than binge watching TV shows and feeding my cat. It’s horrid.
TARA: I’ll take you out. Let’s go out this Friday instead, just me and you, and we’ll meet some new men. How about it?
ELLA: We’ve gone out together before and James is right, I’m sorry, but you are a bit of a drip.
TARA: What did you just say to me?
ELLA: You aren’t much for excitement.
TARA: That’s cause I know how to hold my liquor.
ELLA: It’s not that. You are a bit stiff is all. And there’s nothing wrong with being safe, if that’s your thing, but…I need more.
TARA: Right. Right, well…I guess I can try to imagine your perspective…I can try to understand why (trouble saying his name) Jam—es Du—PONT, is your cup of tea, really, I don’t know, well, good luck.
TARA turns her chair around, giving ELLA
ELLA: Tara, please don’t be this way.
TARA: Excuse me? Which way?
ELLA: Alright, I know you’re upset, I wouldn’t be a good friend if I wasn’t completely honest with you, right? Isn’t that what friendship is all about?
ELLA: Do you want me–
TARA: YES, leave me alone, I have some work to do.
