In the teen monologue, When We Imagine, Jesse tries to convince Felix to get a muscle car so she can get free rides to and from school.
JESSE: You should get a car. I see you in one of those old school muscle cars. That’d be a good match. I’m always matching things. Napkins with dishes or socks with shoes or people with cars…the way my brain works. Comfort. When I have the right match, it gives me relief, like, to figure out what’s missing. I like to find the other half of things. Nothing is whole, right? A book has a bookmark, just like ink has paper or coffee has sugar or a TV has a remote or money has a wallet, sometimes, most of the time or a lover has a lover. (Quickly.) Where’s that rotten ass school bus gone off to? I’m much too old to be riding ’round in a yellow school bus! Can’t tell you how many times I duck whenever we drive past someone I know. Which is why you should get a car, Felix.
