ACTOR 2 (Jason)

So. What are we going to do about this?

ACTOR 5 (Glauke)

About what?

ACTOR 2 (Jason)

The sexual tension that's making me so cross-eyed I can't work.

ACTOR 5 (Glauke)

Oh. That.

ACTOR 2 (Jason)

Yeah. That. Well?

ACTOR 5 (Glauke)

Why do we have to do anything?

ACTOR 2 (Jason)

Why not?

ACTOR 5 (Glauke)

I don't think so. Not yet.

ACTOR 2 (Jason)

What do you want? To see me squirm?

ACTOR 5 (Glauke)

That would be a start.

ACTOR 2 (Jason)

So how long does that go on?

ACTOR 5 (Glauke)

I'm very patient.

ACTOR 2 (Jason)

You'd enjoy stringing me along.

ACTOR 5 (Glauke)

Immensely.

ACTOR 2 (Jason)

Why?

ACTOR 5 (Glauke)

Because I know how much you want it
and how long I can hold out
and how certain you are
you'll always get what you want.

ACTOR 2 (Jason)

What do you want?

ACTOR 5 (Glauke)

Courtship.

ACTOR 2 (Jason)

I'm married.

ACTOR 5 (Glauke)

That's not *my* problem, now is it?
