Drama Short Scene
GAS STATION ATTENDANT
[JENNA has been driving all night after a fight with her husband. JENNA leaves a truck stop with a cup of coffee and although it is not her nature to pick up hitch hikers, at this point she figures what is the worst that can happen? Death? Then so be it.]
ROBERT: Hey, can I get a ride?
JENNA: Why not? Where are you headed?
ROBERT: [Getting in car] Where are you from? Where are you going?
JENNA: Jackson, Wyoming and Jackson, Wyoming
ROBERT: Are you married?
ROBERT: How far can you take me?
JENNA: Twin Falls, Idaho.
ROBERT: You have small breasts. Do you talk to spirits?
JENNA: What? What do you mean?
ROBERT: My girlfriend was small like you; she spoke to the spirits and became a double D overnight.
JENNA: [White knuckled on the steering wheel] Where is your girlfriend?
JENNA: Do you work there?
ROBERT: [Looking down at his lap] No, I blew up the oil truck I was driving because I was angry. I got fired. I have no job and no money. I started my house on fire and burnt everything up. My girlfriend got mad at me because all her bras were burned. I am hoping she will forgive me when I get back to Oklahoma. When I get angry, I just snap.
JENNA: [Tongue in cheek] Are you angry now?
ROBERT: No, I feel better. Are you angry now?
JENNA: No, just out for a drive. I love going for drives.
ROBERT: Would your husband let me come home with you? You are so pretty.
JENNA: Hmmm, sorry but I don’t think so. Oh, my gosh!
JENNA: My radiator is overheating!
JENNA: I don’t know! But I need to stop and let it cool down.
[JENNA pulls over and retrieves a book from the glove box. She is very nervous.]
ROBERT: What are you reading?
JENNA: Just a story.
ROBERT: I see the word kissing. Can I kiss you?
JENNA: No, I don’t think that is a good idea.
JENNA: [Starts the car.] We will stop at the next gas
