Spaceship.

Solomon. Esther.

The future.


ESTHER

You know how people are always saying, "Not if you were the last man on earth?"

SOLOMON

Or "Not if you were the last woman on earth"?

ESTHER

Well, you're the last man on earth.

SOLOMON

And you're the last woman on earth.

ESTHER

And you like men.

SOLOMON

And you like women.

ESTHER

And there's the whole "survival of the human race" thing to deal with.

SOLOMON

And we're not even on earth.

ESTHER

There is no earth.

SOLOMON

Anymore.

ESTHER

We're in space.

SOLOMON

So I guess you're the last woman in the universe.

ESTHER

And you're the last man standing.

SOLOMON

So...

ESTHER

Not to worry, of course. There's the sperm bank.

SOLOMON

And the egg bank.

ESTHER

Farming little humans as we speak.

SOLOMON

We love our spaceship.

ESTHER

And our computer.

SOLOMON

If we had to start cranking out...

ESTHER

We?

SOLOMON

You.

ESTHER

I mean, you'd help, obviously.

SOLOMON

But you're right.

ESTHER

My uterus would be very tired.

SOLOMON

Still...

ESTHER

Yeah.

SOLOMON

They did say...

ESTHER

In the event of the near annihilation of the human race...

SOLOMON

We were supposed to push this button.

ESTHER

And that sex would be involved.

SOLOMON

Shall we?

ESTHER

I don't really want to. No offense.

SOLOMON

None taken.

ESTHER

We'll push the button together.

SOLOMON

Sounds fair.

They push the button.

The LOVE BOT appears from out of the dark upstage.

The Love Bot has a male side, JUSTIN, and a female side, JENNIFER.

Both sides are extremely attractive.

They are back to back, in profile.


JENNIFER

Decouple back.

JUSTIN

Decouple upstage arm.

JENNIFER

Decouple upstage leg.

JUSTIN

Face Solomon, Esther and the audience.

They do. JUSTIN and JENNIFER are still linked by their inside leg and inside arm.

They wave hello, somewhat awkwardly, with their free outside arms.


JENNIFER

Hello!

JUSTIN

Hi!

ESTHER

Well, I certainly wasn't expecting that.

SOLOMON

Nope, me neither.

JENNIFER

We are The Love Bot. I'm Jennifer.

JUSTIN

And I'm Justin.

JENNIFER

And we're here to help you reboot the human race.

They wave again.
Perhaps they wink.


ESTHER

Why weren't we told about you?

JUSTIN

We were considered a potential distraction from the mission.

JENNIFER

Which is still the mission.

JUSTIN

To find a new home world for the human race.

JENNIFER

We were programmed to be so irresistible that if you knew of our existence, you'd just be having sex all the time.

JUSTIN

And you wouldn't get any other work done.

JENNIFER

But apparently the human race has been nearly annihilated.

JUSTIN

So, time for sex!

JUSTIN and JENNIFER step forward, still linked at their inside leg and arm.

SOLOMON and ESTHER instinctively step back.


SOLOMON

So is this an enforced orgy or something?

JUSTIN

Enforced?

JENNIFER

Orgy?

The LOVE BOT realizes JUSTIN and JENNIFER are still connected.

They attempt to laugh.


JUSTIN

Oops.

JENNIFER

Sorry.

JUSTIN

This does seem threatening.

JENNIFER

Fear not.

JUSTIN

All sex will be consensual.

JENNIFER

Very consensual.

JUSTIN

Decouple interior arm.

JENNIFER

Decouple interior leg.

They do.

JUSTIN and JENNIFER can now stand separately.


JUSTIN

We've been in the box a long time.

JENNIFER

Human interaction will just take a teensy bit of time to get used to.

JUSTIN

Again, apologies.

They wave, in unison, in the least threatening way they can think of.
