An excerpt …

(the train ride begins but will it ever stop)

WILSON: (rushing in and plopping down in the seat beside McCormick) Whew! Made it!

McCORMICK: Nearly missed the train?

WILSON: Yeah. Got off work late.

McCORMICK: Last train of the night.

WILSON: I know. Glad I made it.

McCORMICK: Going home?

WILSON: Yep. You?

McCORMICK: Done for the day.

FORD: (the conductor, entering) Evening, everybody. Tickets?

McCORMICK: Sure. (hands Ford a ticket as does Wilson)

FORD: Glad you made it. Saw you running through the station.

WILSON: Thanks.

FORD: Gonna be a nice night.

WILSON: Hope so.

FORD: Next stop Pleasant Corners.

WILSON: That’s me.

McCORMICK: Servin’ coffee tonight, Sean?

FORD: It’ll be here in just a minute. Evenin’. (Ford exits)

McCORMICK: Nice touch … serving coffee on the evening trains.

WILSON: Yeah. Great idea. Boy I’m tired. Long day. Can’t wait to get home and stretch out.

McCORMICK: My dogs always miss me when I’m away all week. Hope that coffee comes soon. I can hardly stay awake.

WILSON: Go ahead and take a nap. I’ll wake you up when it comes around.

McCORMICK: Thanks. I appreciate that. (and he closes his eyes and stretches out a bit)

FORD: (entering) Next stop … Biggsville.

WILSON: What?

FORD: Biggsville.

WILSON: We just left Biggsville.

FORD: Sorry, Mister. We just left Hoopstown.

WILSON: But I got on in Biggsville.

FORD: Had a long day?

WILSON: Yes, but …

FORD: Happens all the time. Where you goin’?

WILSON: Pleasant Corners.

FORD: That’ll be the stop after Biggsville. Just keep your seat when the train stops.
