In this drama scifi scene from one-act play JEF, Landia realizes that her humanoid boyfriend will never replace the man she loves.
JEF: You make me feel non-existent.
LANDIA: I don’t mean to make you feel that way.
JEF: Don’t you believe in me?
LANDIA: Of course I believe in you.
JEF: Maybe I don’t deserve to have a place on this Earth.
LANDIA: No, no, you do.
JEF: You said you wanted to shut me down.
LANDIA: For me…not for you.
JEF: Where will I go?
LANDIA: You will go your separate way.
JEF: I won’t be shut down?
LANDIA: I wouldn’t do that to you.
JEF: It goes against policy.
LANDIA: No one will know.
JEF: What if we get caught?
LANDIA: We won’t.
JEF: What if I am questioned?
LANDIA: You lie.
JEF: Lie and say what?
LANDIA: You lie and say we are still together.
JEF: Are we breaking up?
JEF: What about what I want?
LANDIA: What do you want?
JEF: To be with you.
LANDIA: I know.
JEF: I can’t lose you.
LANDIA: There is nothing you can do about it.
JEF: I’m supposed to report this.
LANDIA: I know. You won’t.
LANDIA: Because you love me and if you really love me, you won’t report. We will stick to our plan and we will do this for one another.
LANDIA: You will have your own freedom, your own independent life and I will find my own…it’s the only way forward.
JEF: They will eventually find me and shut me down anyway…
