This scene is from the play “When Mel Fell for Nell“ ISBN-13: 978-1512007183



(Mel and Nell enter the seating area of a restaurant with a tray filled with drinks, a number and dinner rolls. They are talking so they don't notice immediately that all the tables are taken by a person a each table with a laptop or tablet or some electronic device)

NELL
You think the kids are okay?

MEL
We have a good sitter.

NELL
Why do they have to act that way when I leave? They act like they are dying. Why do they have to be so over-dramatic? It's worse than watching Titanic.

MEL
No... nothing is worse than watching Titanic.

(They realize they are wandering a bit too much)

NELL
All the tables are taken.

MEL
Oh no. It's the hipster hobos.

NELL
The what?

MEL
Hipster hobos... aka laptop hobos... they find hip places with free wifi and buy the cheapest thing possible and camp out for the entire day.

NELL
Don't they have anything better to do?

MEL
No... this is their life. Taking up space and trying to look cool while doing it.

NELL
Well... it's not cool. I am a tired mom who needs a night to relax... I just need to sit.

MEL
I think that one's asleep. Maybe if we sit with her really quiet.

NELL
I want our own table. I think that one ran out of battery... oh, wait, he has an extension cord.

MEL
You think with all the free refills they'd have to get up to go pee more.

NELL
Maybe if I find the wifi hub, I can unplug it.

MEL
And get us kicked out.

NELL
Why don't they kick them out?

MEL
It's a vicious cycle. This restaurant wants to appear hip. So they want the hipsters in here to draw in the rest of the hip crowd. But hispters have to fit in their skinny jeans so they don't buy much food.

NELL
I have an idea.

(Nell speaks loudly)

NELL (CONT.)
Did you hear about the sale at the Apple store?! It's a good one!

(Hipsters start to take interest)

NELL (CONT.)
They have a sale on the new iPid!

HIPSTER 1
The iPid?

HIPSTER 2
What's an iPid?

(Hipsters start to stir and get excited)

NELL (CONT.)
I don't know! But it's new!

HIPSTER 3
I need one!

HIPSTER 4
Me too!

(Hipsters start to pack up in a hurry and leave)

NELL (CONT.)
And I hear they will give 100 iPids away to the first 100 people in line.

(Hipsters are leaving)

NELL (CONT.)
They don't open until morning so you'll have to wait in line all night.

HIPSTER 1
I always stay in line the night before the launch of a new Apple product.

HIPSTER 2
Who doesn't?

(Hipster 3 calls out to a waitress off stage)

HIPSTER 3
I brought my extension cord. Is it okay if I leave it plugged in here?

HIPSTER 4
I have a power strip.

(All the Hipsters are gone. Nell smiles big)

NELL
Which table would you like?

(They sit down happily and Nell unplugs the long extension cord that was left behind by the hipsters. Blackout. Hipsters moan and groan in the darkness)

"I Think I’m A Stalker"
from "LOSERS IN LOVE"
by D. M. Larson

(JANE enters cafe' and goes up to JENNY)

JENNY
Hey, Jane. You’re usual?

JANE
Sure… have you seen Tony?

JENNY
You just missed him.

JANE
Oh…

JENNY
Something wrong?

JANE
I had an awkward moment this morning.

JENNY
Tony wet the bed again?

JANE
Very funny. Never mind.

JENNY
I’m sorry. You can talk to me. We’re practically almost sisters.

JANE
We are?

JENNY
I figure Tony and Frank are almost like brothers and we’re in serious relationships with them so we’re nearly almost sisters now.

JANE
Well… I had the weirdest revelation this morning.

JENNY
Do tell? Wait, let me guess. Was it that you realized how pretty Tony is and if you put him in a dress that he’d look a little too good as a woman?

JANE
What? No! What are you talking about?

JENNY
Never mind. I have weird thoughts like that.

JANE
I think I’m doing something pretty weird too.

JENNY
Really? Please tell me.

JANE
No jokes if I do.

JENNY
I promise.

JANE
I think I’m a stalker.

JENNY
This is good. Who are you stalking?

JANE
Tony.

JENNY
But… you already got him.

JANE
But I’m doing creepy stuff like putting pictures of him on my wall. He showed me all these old pictures of him from when he was in high school and college and I kept some of them. I woke up and looked all the pictures on my bedroom wall and suddenly felt like a stalker. I wonder if I’m creeping him out.

JENNY
Trust me… he’s very into you… he loves being stalked by you.

JANE
I hope so.

JENNY
I know so.

JANE
Thanks Jenny. But promise me you’ll tell me if I’m getting too creepy.

JENNY
As long as you don’t start knitting things out of his hair, then we’re okay.

JANE
Um…

JENNY
You’re not are you?

JANE
No! I was only kidding. Tell Tony I was looking for him.

JENNY
Why don’t you text him or something?

JANE
No cell phone. I’m finally free of the financial and invasive stress of having one.

JENNY
I don’t think I could live without my phone.

JANE
Not only do I live without mine. I live better.

JENNY
Everyone here is living… I think.

(Everyone in the cafe is on some kind of electronic device)

JANE
We should all get together some time and unplug. It could be fun.

JENNY
Hmmm… I don’t know.

(JENNY gives JANE her drink)

JANE
Thanks for the drink. I better go. I think I have somewhere to be. Maybe I’ll take a walk in the park while I try to remember where it was.

(JANE leaves happily. JENNY looks at her phone and all the people in the cafe on their phones. She sighs and goes back to work)
