Coffee Therapy — the play

SCENE 7
DARNELL and DR. WINKERBLOOM are back in the coffee shop. DARNELL is making the espresso.

DARNELL
You used to fall asleep a lot. Remember?

WINKERBLOOM
It’s a technique. On second thought, make that a full shot of espresso.

DARNELL
A technique? Sleep?

WINKERBLOOM
Relaxation. Some of my clients are so nervous. When I nod off they seem to relax. You know what? – just make that a double shot.

DARNELL
Well, you were a good therapist. I shoveled a lot of bullshit in that office of yours.

WINKERBLOOM
I’m glad to hear that. You married?

DARNELL
Uh huh. Three children.

WINKERBLOOM
Oh. Really married.

DARNELL
You?

WINKERBLOOM
Let’s see. Since then? Divorced. Re-married. Divorced again… And…
Pause.

DARNELL
Re-married?

WINKERBLOOM
Living together.

DARNELL
Oh.

WINKERBLOOM
I’m with my first husband again. The original. The kids are grown. We’ve found we like each other again.

DARNELL
Maybe that could be the case with us, in the therapeudic context. You were my first therapist. I could give you a ring. I assume you’re still in private practice?

WINKERBLOOM
Don’t, please. Bad idea. Revisiting an old therapist can be nice, but for therapy again? In your case, I’m afraid that could be a bit disillusioning.

DARNELL
Yeah. Things have changed…
