Monologue Text

Hey, hey... Where is everybody...? George? George? George! What are you doing? Hiding, or something? GEORGE!! Oh, fa Chri... Deserted! Abandoned! Left out in the cold like an old cat... HA! Can I get you a drink, Martha? Why, thank you, George; that's very kind of you. No, Martha, no; why I'd do anything for you. Would you, George? Why, I'd do anything for you, too. Would you, Martha? Why, certainly, George. Martha, I've misjudged you. And I've misjudged you, too, George.

WHERE IS EVERYBODY?!?

Daddy? Daddy? Martha is abandon-ed. Left to her own vices at... something o'clock in the old A.M... Daddy white mouse; do you really have red eyes? Do you? Let me see. Ohhhhhh! You do! You do! Daddy, you have red eyes... because you cry all the time, don't you, Daddy. Yes; you do. You cry allllll the time....

I'LL GIVE YOU BASTARDS FIVE TO COME OUT FROM WHERE YOU'RE HIDING!!!

(Pause.) I cry all the time, too, Daddy... I cry allll the time; but deep inside, so nobody can see me. I cry all the time. And Georgie cries all the time, too. We both cry all the time, and then, what we do, we cry, and we take our tears, and we put 'em in the ice box, in the goddamn ice trays... until they're all frozen (Laughs) and then... we put them... in our... drinks. (More laughter, then silence. She jiggles the ice in her glass.) CLINK! (Does it again.) CLINK! (Giggles, and repeats this several more times.) CLINK! ...CLINK! ...CLINK! ...CLINK! ...Clink?
