She’s got a diary, you know. You’re in it.

In drama scene from eplay, “Piper’s Coming Home”, Jerome tries to explain to Benny why he should give his bedroom up for Piper.

JEROME: What did you do with Piper’s things?

BENNY: I sold some of it.

JEROME: You’re kidding.

BENNY: I needed the money man, alright?

JEROME: Couldn’t ask me?

BENNY: You were tapped out, too.

JEROME: …That’s wrong, Ben.

BENNY: I kept most of her sh’t. It’s in the closet under one of the boards. (Beat.) She’s got a diary, you know. You’re in it.


BENNY: Yeah.

JEROME: She wrote about me?

BENNY: I told you, yeah.

JEROME: Not sure I should…did she say good things or bad things?

BENNY: Both.

JEROME: Really, like, how?

BENNY: She thinks you’re nerdy but finds you…enlightening.

JEROME: You’re messing with me.

BENNY: Enlightening. That’s her word..I think.

JEROME: Don’t tell me anymore. Don’t matter…and you shouldn’t be reading her diary.

BENNY: More like a diary disguised as a novel…weird.

JEROME: You read the whole thing?

BENNY: Yep. She hates my guts. She’ll hate me even more when she finds out I sold her sh’t. That’s life.

JEROME: Do you need a hand moving out?

BENNY: I’m keeping the room.

JEROME: What’s wrong with you?

BENNY: I like the room and there’s no other room that I like.

JEROME: That’s…not right. I’ll give her my room then.

BENNY: There’s no other room..they’re all taken.

JEROME: I don’t give a damn. I’ll sleep somewhere downstairs. I’m not like you.

BENNY: Dude, I’m telling you. There’s no cot, extra blankets, not even a chair to spare. We’re jam packed in this place. Remember Frederick had to turn away some kid from Maine last week? Couldn’t take him in.

JEROME: Rather Piper have my room.

BENNY: You must like her or something, eh?

JEROME: It’s just the right thing to do.

BENNY: No, it isn’t.

JEROME: We look at things differently Skylar.
