Red Ellipse marks beginning of new material.
Bas: Connie, I think I saw Esmerelda getting ready for your baking lesson. Why don't you go see?
Connie: (As she stands) Poppa, you do know Daddy tells me everything, so this will only delay my knowing what you think I don't want to hear.
Bas: Still allow me some of my illusions darling. (He kisses her forehead.) Hmm? Go run along now.
Connie Exits. Bas begins treating Dean.
Bas: I called Doctor Monroe. (Dean starts to object but before he can get a word out Bas continues) If this was the first or only time you'd stumbled or fallen lately I wouldn't have. But you've been falling at least once a day and today you undeniably hurt yourself.
Dean: I can tell you exactly what she'll say Bas. She'll say, stay home, sleep and drink non-alcoholic fluids. And the answer is No to the first two. I have a show tonight, I can't stay home being a pussy.
Bas: It’s not being a pussy Dean. You’re sick!
Dean: Have you seen the shit I’ve written? That’s hardly new.
Bas: (laughing) Yes, but now you are ill, honey, and that is new.
Dean: I’m fine, Bas, darling, I’m fine.
Bas: We’ll see what Doctor Monroe says.
And Act one Scene Two is "Louis" Scene three to come...
