You Always Get Headaches When We Talk Past a Third Grade Level

A comedy scene for two about a strange philosophy about eating chocolate candy from the comedy one-act eplay The Last M&M Samurai.

JOE: Dude! There you go again with that commercial talk. What’s wrong with you?

DAN: Nothing at all.

JOE: But why do you keep talking so strangely?

DAN: This is how I talk.

JOE: What’s your favorite video game console?

DAN: Nintendo! Nintendo has a wide assortment of video game cartridges that are sure to leave you spellbound. From Contra to Super Mario Bros, the fun’s just getting started.

JOE: The fun’s just getting started?

DAN: That’s right. With our special discount offer of twenty percent, you too can get in on the action.

JOE: What twenty percent discount?

DAN: There are loads of old school vintage games you can buy online at reasonable costs.

JOE: Dan, can you please talk normal?

DAN: I am.

JOE: Okay, tell me about where you vacationed in Florida recently.

DAN: Fun in the sun just got a helluva lot better when you feast your eyes on this exclusive week long getaway. There’s privacy, jacuzzis, cocktails and incredible dinner packages, not to mention fantastic oceanside views and fabulous water bound activity such as snorkeling, boating and jet skis.

JOE: Tell me about your girlfriend.

DAN: A tall, slender beauty with green eyes and soft brown hair, Jane is a rare breed of high intelligence, slapstick humor, kindness and fierce determination—

JOE: Stop! Talk about me. Say something about me.

DAN: Whattya know, Joe, a good buddy to pal around with, smart enough to converse with but don’t push him too far, he might break.

JOE: What do you mean, I might break?

DAN: You always get headaches when we talk past a third grade level.

JOE: That’s unfair.

DAN: Life can be crude.

JOE: We’ve talked about all sorts of things, history, science, politics, you name it.

DAN: Yes but it’s always at a basic level, you don’t expand your mind. You keep things simple. For instance, my m & m philosophy…you couldn’t handle it.

JOE: It’s a freaking color coated peanut!
