Coffee Therapy — the play

SCENE 19
SR. DARNELL sits with DR. ROSS. He gives DR. ROSS a piece of paper. DR. ROSS takes it, and gives DARNELL a clipboard and pen.
DR. ROSS
Now, draw that picture from memory.

DARNELL
I can’t draw.
DR. ROSS
Do your best.

DARNELL
I can’t remember it at all.
DR. ROSS

You’re not getting graded on this. Just…draw.
Frustrated, DARNELL draws. After a moment, he gives the clipboard back to DR. ROSS. He looks over the drawing.

DR. ROSS
You’re right. You can’t draw. What – didn’t you go to second grade?

DARNELL
I had the same problem there.

DR. ROSS
You’re a terrible artist.

DARNELL
Yep.

DR. ROSS
Anyhow, that’s not important.

DR. ROSS removes the drawing from the clipboard and replaces it with a booklet. He gives the clipboard back to DARNELL.

DR. ROSS
Now take this one. It might take awhile. I’m going to handle some other things and check back with you in a few minutes.

DARNELL flips through the booklet.

DARNELL
This has three hundred questions.

DR. ROSS
leaving the room
Take your time. Relax.
