Mr. Yelts and Mr. Johnson are laying on ground firing back at the enemies and Waiting for contact with friendlies they are yelling over the noise as they are firing.


Mr. Johnson- we are under fire we don’t know were we are and we aren’t allowed to state our names over…. (Static) silence as mr. yelts looks at him with disgrace.

(yelts flinches.) and third of all I must remind you we found our way here we are trained to work backwards.


Nazi 1- 3 days why that would kill a man and here you are unless you are lying perhaps to maintain friendly conversation.


Nazi 2- no sir your thinking of oxygen you can only live three seconds without oxygen.

Nazi 2-(Was die Hölle, die jener wasnt annimmt, zu geschehen, was Sie machte, tun unrecht Ihnen idiotisches Stück der Scheiße)

Scene 8


Detective is with mother family is all in living room detective and mother are in private to the side.


Detective- this is a trying time for your family right now but when looking at the scene..


Mother- my daughter dead is not a scene it’s a tradgedy


Detective- im greatly srry do you want to wait for questioning and come to my office at a later time mam


Mother- im srry its just so unexpected my husband was coming home soon continue


Detective when looking at your daughter we found a needle hole in her which suggests to us that she commited suicide with over dose.


Mother- in a solemn death tone- have you met my daughter how do you dare you say what she did or didn’t do I know my daughters and they all know well enough not to go to that extreme.


Detective- I know it seems that way but forgive me for asking but why was she found two miles from home.


Mother- I have raised my kids well and if they bite me I bite twice as hard and when they are good I am twice as good to them I love them and with love comes discipline.


Detective- what exactly are you saying Mrs. Johnson


Mother- Barbara was in rough shape last night actually we have all been in rough shape these last few weeks before jack comes home.


Detective- im assuming Jack is your husband and the father to the kids.


Mother- (Progressively falling apart crying) yes well last night barabara had been swearing and I said enough with it a few times last night. I shouldn’t of blown when she swore but jane was getting upset with her so I slapped her across the face. its my fault im so srry I shouldn’t of.


Detective- Other than the incident you just described to me were there any signs of suicidal comments or gestures.


Mother- with all the fighting and cursing I don’t believe so but the one of the girls might of seen something.


Detective- is there a specific one that hangs out with her more than others or is it all even sharing of affection.


Mother- that’s a strange way to ask that question but yes if anyone were to notice more it would be Nicole. she has a knack for small details even though she is a little more in the fog than rest.


Detective- just routine questions mam I know it gets old. May I talk to her?


Mother-Yah sure Nicole you want to come talk to the detective.


Nicole- (nervous) yah sure (comes in) (as mom exits to be with other kids) wispers what does he want


Mother- Just a few (sarcastically quoting with fingers) “routine questions”


Detective- your mom said she wasn’t to happy with Barabara last night and slapped her severly across the face is that correct.


Nicole- yes she was slapped but by severely if you mean she bruised no she didn’t she just cried but she didn’t do that severely either.


Detective- has there ever been evidence of abuse to a specific child in the past or overall abuse.


Nicole- look I know I may seem like a blonde but look I do have brown hair no my mom hasn’t abused us she disciplines us when we do bad things like smoke or drugs but none of us have done that. Is that all you wanted because I feel like I am on a crime show.


Detective- im sorry you feel that way I am just trying to rule out murder as far as me and my people are concerned it was a suicide. Were there any suicidal comments or gestures from Barbara.


Nicole- I strongly don’t agree with your accused asions because she was afraid of the dark let alone holding a weapon or harmful tool. but if its any help last night she said she would rather kill herself than eat jennies food and she did this thing with the fingers and (does the gesture)


Detective- Mrs johnson please come here.


Mother- yes detective what is it


Detective- I want to inform you both that I have dealt with suicide cases before and with the description and with the evidence we have we see a suicide on the other hand I will inform if we find something more or new details come I am terribly sorry for your loss and I hope the best for your family. (exits stage)


Mother- I better get a call back soon


Nicole- do you think were being targeted or did she would she really do that. I should of told her not to run away instead of being so dumb


Mother- its hard to say but it is not anyones fault but hers if she did that. did you here me noyones fault but her owns.


they hug each other lights dim and they exit stage.


Scene 8


Jack- Barbara commited suicide no she couldn’t of I wont believe it tell..the detective said that what type of detectives do you really think we have in the boonies of Nebraska. its not even considered a town were we live..I just cant believe it.

Jack- (crying) theres no way on gods green earth anyone of my daughters expecially barb would do such a thing.


William- are you going to be able to make it to the funeral.


Jack- No theres just no way with the conditions of the weather I could try but anne would tell me not to because she doesn’t want to risk me. Its all because of those stupid dreams.


William-(picks up phone book and dials)

William- lets go eat you need something to take your pain away and I don’t think advil is going to do it. ill drive you down to the shrinks to.

Jack- ha ha thanks for your support


William- your welcome just being a friend.


Scene 9


The shrink (Known as Dr. nucker) is with stanley wright a man with basic problems.


Shrink- and how does that make you feel (pause) having your lovely wife break up with you in front of all your so called friends.


Stanely- My so called friends? I said before my relationship with my friends is great its my wife I am having problems with.


Shrink- I never said you had a bad relationship with your friends but I did insinuate that you did. see there is your problem, at least I believe it is your problem you don’t understand the difference of blunt words and leading words. see blunt words are like ugly, fat, hairy, kind etc. whereas leading words are grouped together to describe one word for example I could explain hairy as old curly pubic and black. or I could describe hairy as soft long and straightened.


Stanely- I don’t see what this has to do with my wife or anything relevant.


Shrink- did your wife file for divorce.


Stanely- yes


Shrink- while than she would be your ex wife correct me if im wrong.


Stanely- yes that would be true


Shrink- well see she, pam, wife, And ex wife are blunt words describing the same person right.


Stanely- ok I feel we are getting no where


Shrink- you still don’t understand hmm lets see describe your wife in three adjectives.


Stanely- nasty devious betrayer


Shrink- so you wife is a nasty devious betrayer correct


Stanely- that’s what I said


Shrink- you understand great


Stanely- no not really you want to explain in English


Shrink- don’t get me started on language expecially English. but anyways you get what I was saying before good.


Stanely- no I don’t but I want to so I can get my wife back.


Shrink- well first if you want to get it why don’t you. second I thought you said your wife was a nasty devious betrayer.


Stanely- get what my wife or get what we were talking about before. no I just described her in three words like you told me to.


Shrink- both. yes but you agreed that she was those things.


Stanely- come to think of it I did agree I think.


Shrink- have you changed your mind, do you have other words to describe her?


Stanely- lovely, kind hearted, and generous.


Shrink- so you do get it. Your wife is a lovely, kind hearted, generous, nasty evil betrayer. all those words together describe each of the following words equally follow the distributive property if x=your wife and your wife=a lovely, kind hearted, generous, nasty evil betrayer. Your ex wife must equal your wife. she must equal your wife. If pam equals your ex wife and your ex wife equals your wife, x must equal x and x in this case is your wife so therefore your wife must equal your wife. got it


Stanely- (in confusion listening) I think
