I’d Like To See You Again In The Future

I’d Like To See You Again is a drama monologue where Pino does his best to talk some sense into a friend who has no clue he’s playing with dynamite.

Pino:  You don’t know Jimmy the way I know Jimmy.  No, no, no, listen, listen…you know Jimmy as a kind hearted, good natured gentleman.  Am I right?  And that’s true, there’s no denying Jimmy’s got a big heart.  He’s the kind of guy that will help an elderly woman across the street.  I get it.

But there’s another side to Jimmy.

A side that very few people get to see.  The thing about it is that if you are someone who has seen it, it’s probably the last thing you’re gonna see.

I’ve seen it but I’ve seen it only because I’ve been with him when the lights go out.  And I gotta say, I don’t ever want to see that side to him ever again.  I’ve never seen anything like it.

So look, the only reason why I’m telling you this is because I like you and I know what you’re thinking about saying to Jimmy.  Believe me, he didn’t mean it.  He’s not that type of guy to hurt someone’s feelings for no reason, alright?  It was done innocently and you shouldn’t be so sensitive.  Okay?  Just let it go.

You’re a grown man and I’m not trying to tell you what to do.  I respect you but I’d like to see you again in the future.
