ELIZABETH: You should be more careful driving in the rain, Mr. Moss.

ELIZABETH sits on a three person sofa across from HARRY and MARY.

HARRY: Why’s that?

ELIZABETH: Well, shouldn’t we all?

HARRY: Why, yes, of course.

ELIZABETH: You don’t need to be here Mother.


ELIZABETH: I like his face.

MARY: Are you sure?


MARY gets up and leaves the room.

There we are. Better. Mother is always interfering.

HARRY: Interfering with what?

ELIZABETH: You are such a smart man. Did you know that about yourself?

HARRY: I know I’m not stupid, if that’s what you’re asking.

ELIZABETH: That’s not what I’m asking and you know that’s not what I’m asking, Mr. Moss.

HARRY: …I find myself more intelligent than most, at least for the work that I do.

ELIZABETH: I’m trying to figure out if I can use you or not.

HARRY: Use me?

ELIZABETH: Not sure if you really need to be here.

HARRY: Use me, how?

ELIZABETH: You’ve done good work, helped many people, does that make you feel good about yourself?

HARRY: I like to help people.

ELIZABETH: Would you consider yourself on the side of good?

HARRY: I should hope so, but I’m not perfect by any means.
