THE CLOCK AND TURNS IT OFF. HE SLEEPILY AROUSES AND PUTS ON

HIS SHORTS AND WALKS SLOWLY TO THE BATHROOM. HE CLOSES THE

LISA:

I am not a slave here, am I?

JOHNNY:

Did you like last night?

LISA:

Yes, I did.

(PAUSE)

What time do you have to be there?

JOHNNY:

(HE PULLS A SUIT FROM THE CLOSET AND THROWS IT ON THE BED

AND STARTS DRESSING.)

JOHNNY:

Where is my coffee?

LISA:

(SHE GETS OUT OF BED AND PUTS ON A REVEALING GOWN AND GOES TO

THE KITCHEN.)

What time do you have to be there?

JOHNNY:

(HE IS YELLING.)

I told you many times! 9:30! I have my promotion to think

about.

LISA:

Promotion! Promotion! That's all I hear about. Here is your

coffee and English muffin and burn your mouth.

JOHNNY:

(HE SITS DOWN AT THE TABLE DRINKING AND EATING.)

Old man Donkey lets me know today. I have to think about our

future.

LISA:

Well at least I don't have a promotion to think about.

JOHNNY:

You have too much competition in the computer field.

LISA:

I can handle it. You worry about yourself.

JOHNNY:

You sound like we have separate lives. We will be married

next month Lisa.

LISA:

Yeah.... Yeah.... Well.

JOHNNY:

(HE STANDS UP.)

Thank you for breakfast.

(HE KISSES HER ON THE CHEEK AND LEAVES.)

See you later.

LISA:

(LISA WALKS TO THE PHONE AND DIALS A NUMBER.)

Hi mom. How are you doing?

CLAUDETTE:

(CLAUDETTE IS TALKING ON THE OTHER PHONE.)

I'm fine. What's happening with you?

LISA:

Nothing much.

CLAUDETTE:

What's wrong? Tell me.

LISA:

I'm not feeling good today.

CLAUDETTE:

Why not?

LISA:

I don't think I want to get married.

CLAUDETTE:

(CLAUDETTE RAISES HER VOICE.)

Why not?

LISA:

I don't love him anymore.

CLAUDETTE:

Why not? Tell me why.

LISA:

He's boring.

CLAUDETTE:

Well you've known him for over five years. You're engaged!

You said you loved him. You should reconsider. He supports

you, he provides for you, and you can't support yourself. He

is a good guy and he loves you very much. His income is very

secure and he told me he wants to buy you a home.

LISA:

That's why he's boring.

CLAUDETTE:

What are you going to do?

LISA:

Um, I don't know. I don't mind living with him.

CLAUDETTE:

You can't do that. Did you tell Johnny about it?

LISA:

No. I don't know what to do.

CLAUDETTE:

He's a very nice person and you know he's getting a promotion

soon. He bought you a car, a ring, clothes, whatever you like

and now you want to dump him. It's not right. I've always

thought of him as my son in law. You should marry him. He

would be good for you.

LISA:

Oh, I guess you're right about that, mom.
