Bob meets Torrie at her place.
Torrie: Oh Bob it’s so good to see you. (She hugs him)
Bob: Wow, that was nice. I really have been missing you.
Torrie: I've been missing you too Bob. I've had time to do a lot of thinking these last few weeks.
Bob: And so have you come to any conclusions?
Torrie: Actually I have. I realize that you are the best guy I’ve ever
gone out with. I want to put this
all behind us: our disagreements and misunderstandings and the whole vegan
Bob: That sounds
good to me. But what do you mean the whole vegan thing?.
Torrie: Bob, I don’t care if you’re a vegan. You don’t have to do
that for me. I know it was kind of ridiculous for me to ask you to do that in the first place.
Bob: Actually, I like being a vegan. I feel great. I
have more energy and I’m in better shape. I should thank you for suggesting it.
Torrie: You really expect me to believe that in a few weeks
you’ve completely changed?
Bob: Yes, I do. And l now I have a
support group. George is also living the vegan lifestyle. It helps that we have
Torrie: George??!! Please! I’m sure he’s already sneaking
behind your back and you don’t even know it. So really, enough already. I know you just did it
for me. Well I’m here. I’m yours. Let’s just drop it and go eat some
Bob: I don’t want to
drop it and I definitely don't want hamburgers. I want to stay a vegan. I hope you’ll understand.
Torrie (throws up her hands): OK, BOB, Whatever?! (Sarcastically) Let’s just go eat something. I’m starving.
Bob and Torrie go to a sandwich shop. They're standing in a long line.
Torrie: Did you just
Torrie: That old lady totally cut in
Bob: What old lady?
Torrie: That old lady right there. She’s pretending like she doesn’t see us all standing right here.
Bob: Who cares. She’s older. Maybe it’s
too tiring for her to stand in a long line. Or maybe she really doesn’t see us.
Torrie: Oh please, if she’s fit enough to come to a sandwich
shop, she’s fit enough to stand in line. How can she not see us? There’s twenty
of us standing here in plain sight.
Bob: Oh god, Torrie please chill.
Torrie: I’m gonna say something.
Bob: NO, DON'T.
Torrie: Bob, calm down. Everyone will be thanking me, I’m
Bob: No, I think you’re wrong. You’re going to be on your
own on this one.
Torrie: No I'm not!… Listen, cutting in line is a big pet peeve of mine. You know that. Just because she’s older doesn’t mean the rules don’t apply to her anymore.
At what age does that happen?
Bob: I think it just happens when a
person decides it does. Just let it go, it’s no big deal.
Torrie ignores him. She yells out.
Torrie: Hey, what do you think you're doing? Don’t you see
there’s a line here!!??
Everyone turns around to look at Torrie. Bob cringes.
Torrie continues: Hey you!
The older lady looks up.
Torrie: Yes you! Can’t you see there’s a line here!!
The old lady looks stricken. The people in line start
glaring at Torrie.
One Guy(speaking to the older woman): It’s OK, don’t listen to her. Go ahead and get your
order. We’re fine.
Bob and Torrie can hear a few voices whispering in line.
“Unbelievable” “What is her problem” "She's psycho"
Torrie gets red in the face and screams.
Torrie: What is wrong with you people!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
She runs out of the shop crying. Bob looks at everyone and
shrugs apologetically and runs after her. He catches her down the street.
Bob: It’s OK.
Torrie: What’s wrong with everyone? Why is everyone so afraid to
Bob: Sometimes it’s just easier to let it go.
Torrie: I’m not ABOUT easy!
Bob: I know you’re not, and I love you just how you are.
Torrie looks up at Bob and cries even harder. She hugs him tighter
than she’s ever hugged anyone in her life.
