Crazy Jodie


In the living room, JODIE has calmed down, but she’s sobbing. BETH and JERRY speak softly to her, trying to console her.

JERRY: We were on Highway 912, between Elbeeton and Rakefield, doing fifty-five in a forty-five – and there wasn’t another damn car on the road. Your mother, said “You think we ought to turn back?” And I said, “Not a chance.”

BETH: It was very romantic.

JODIE: Your father introduced you to each other. He picked you out of a crowd.

JERRY: And we’ve always had a great little secret.

JODIE: Compromise.

BETH: That’s right, dear.

JODIE: And more people should learn it.

JERRY: That’s right. They should.


BETH: What, dear?

JODIE: Please make Charlie leave.

long pause

Please. I hate it when he’s here.


JODIE: I want him to leave.

BETH: Sorry, dear.
