- what are-- what are your thoughts?

- I think--

- Yeah.

- It's not me. I don't--

I mean, I just--

I don't-- I just don't

really like 'em, I guess.

Oh. Okay.

Let me--

I don't know.

Anita was there too.

There's passion. It's just,

you know,

- not for their spouses.

- Mm-hmm.

Say you're looking at someone

but you're thinking of someone else--

or maybe you're

just thinking of yourself,

or just nothing.

Actually, I think

that's the most common

or the most pleasant thing to think--

just think nothing,

if that's possible.

I think it is.

You know.

Look, there's--

there's something furtive that--

that gives you a thrill

and the play is about that thrill.

- What does furtive mean?

- Hidden.

- Secrets. You all have secrets.

- Yeah.

Um, I'll be right back.

I don't know why, but I've never

been able to do hidden very well.

I guess I'm just not

very good at secrets.

Sure you are.

You don't know her.

Mmm, that's right, I don't,

but I think she's good at secrets.

I don't get it.

Why would you say that?

You know why I would say that.

Mmm, do I-- no.

No, I really--

I really don't.

- I don't get it.

- You don't?

- Hm-mmm.

- I think you do. I think you both do.

S-- sorry, I don't.

Excuse me.

- That was really weird, right?

- Oh my God.

- That's not funny.

- No, I'm sorry.

- It's not funny.

- Was that me? That was weird.

- Hey.

- Hey.

- You okay?

- Yeah, sure. Why?

It's nice to finally meet you.

You too.

- Yeah, I'll see you in a minute.

- See you.

You missed--

- you missed a strange thing.

- What?

- Tell me.

- Tyrone was just--

I don't know.

I think he was just playing around.

Doing something. I don't--


It's nothing. He was just--

I guess he was kidding.

I don't know.

It was-- it was weird. It's fine.
