An excerpt …

(Morey thinks he’s talking to himself at the graveyard.)

JACOB: (entering, standing behind Morey) Of course I can hear you.

MOREY: You know, that’s funny. Must be the wind or my imagination playing tricks. I just imagined I heard you say …

JACOB: … of course I can hear you.

MOREY: You said it again. This is weird. Maybe it’s my cold medicine.

JACOB: You don't have a cold.

MOREY: You’re right. (It hits him) Jacob! Jacob, is that really you?!

JACOB: We’ve got the cemetery to ourselves. Who else could it be?

(It seems the friendship wasn’t always calm.)

JACOB: I always had to do the thinking for you. To tell you the truth, that’s why I came here today. I wanted to know how in the world you were managing without me. I’ve been the brains of our friendship ever since we were little boys.

MOREY: That’s, uh … that’s harsh, Jacob.

JACOB: That’s the downside of being dead. I mean, other than the fact that you actually are dead … you’re completely honest. Once you’re dead, what’s the use of lying?

MOREY: I miss you, Jacob. And I feel really bad about your … you know …

JACOB: Death?

(Jacob tripped over a stray cat and fell down the stairs.)

JACOB: How do you know that cat, Morey?

MOREY: Did I say I knew the cat? What do I know about cats? Cats make me sneeze! It was just a figure of speech, Jacob!

JACOB: That was your cat!!?? I tripped over your cat and fell down the stairs and died?

MOREY: Look, Mom said I had to get him out of the house and I didn’t know where else to put him and …

JACOB: You killed me with your cat!!!???

MOREY: How’d I know he’d try to climb the stairs!
