SCOTT: Well, the government's done it again.
SCOTT: Something terrible, repressive, and ultimately deadly.
ANN: Oh no, not again. (She flops back wearily.)
SCOTT: Yes, again.
ANN: I suppose we're supposed to do something about it.
SCOTT: Of course! There are signs to be made, rallies to be attended, groups to be financially supported and benefit concerts to be danced at.
ANN: Oh my God. (She flops even more.)
SCOTT: Where's that super fat marker? (He stands to look for the marker. He notices his exhausted friend. He does a double take and then flops down with her.)
ANN: There's a special "Bloopers from the "70's" show on TV tonight.
SCOTT: But what about the phone campaign and envelope licking party?
ANN: This activism has become tedious. My side never wins and even when it does, they make it seem like a loss. It's just useless, exhausting and boring.
ANN: But, what?
SCOTT: But we have a responsibility to our political system, to humanity, to our conscience.
ANN: That's a tough one. (Pause.) Okay. I know. The deal is; I'm trying to work on my soul and right now. And it's the whole thing of: My only action is one of non-action. And I think maybe I have a little bit of a fever. (Scott feels his own forehead.) "The Dukes of Hazzard" will be on that show tonight.
SCOTT: Do I feel warm to you?
