An excerpt …

(The job applicant has arrived.)

PARKER: All right, let’s get down to your application (types on imaginary computer) Your name?

MORGAN: Morgan.

PARKER: First or last?

MORGAN: Both. My mother had a sense of humor. I’m Morgan Morgan.

PARKER: (typing) Well, that’s a first. Experience?


PARKER: How long have you done this sort of work?

MORGAN: Well, all my life really.

PARKER: I mean professionally.

MORGAN: Uh, well, you see. This is the first time I’ve tried it professionally.

PARKER: (sighing and typing) Well, we all have to start somewhere, don’t we?

(It’s for a job … sitting.)

MORGAN: How many openings do you have?

PARKER: Just one. We employ over twenty sitters during the normal year … as many as twenty-five during the seasonal rush. Our oldest sitter retired last week.

MORGAN: How long was he with you?

PARKER: Harold sat for us for over forty years.


PARKER: Then one day he just got up.

MORGAN: What a wonderful life.

(The boss is reluctant.)

MORGAN: Look, I don’t want sympathy. I just want a job. Please give me a chance.

PARKER: Like I said, we don’t have time to train you. I need somebody to start sitting first thing Monday morning.

MORGAN: (becoming more and more desperate) Please! I can do it! I don’t need training! Really! Look, just try me. Give me a test, okay? Just watch me sit … give me a chance, please!
