Cathy and Chris have been practicing together for a while, and Cathy
CATHY: Would you like to stay a little longer and practice today?
CHRIS: Uh, no thanks. Tomorrow should be plenty of p-practice.
CATHY: Okay. (beat) Bye.
CATHY: Chris? I . . . uh . . . noticed something tonight?
CATHY: When Mr./Ms. Wheatley told you to get into your character, and you did, when you really began to play your part, you didn’t stutter.
CHRIS: Yeah, that happens sometimes. Like when I talk to my dog. Or singing. Whispering’s the same way. I don’t read too much into it.
CATHY: What about just now?
CHRIS: What about it?
CATHY: When you were talking about your stuttering, you didn’t stutter.
CHRIS: Yeah, that happens too, unless I’m with my speech therapist.
CATHY: I didn’t know you went.
CHRIS: Wuh-wuh-once a week.
