An excerpt …

(an airline ticket counter)

BLAIR: (standing behind a ticket counter) Next, please!

JALEN: That’s me. (hands Blair an imaginary ticket)

BLAIR: A ticket for Portland, round trip?

JALEN: Yep! Got be there this afternoon!

BLAIR: Name?

JALEN: Jalen. Jalen Whalen.

BLAIR: (looking through his lists) Whalen..Whalen…I’m sorry. I don’t have a reservation for any Whalen.

JALEN: Oh, they’re always doing this. Look, I’ve got the ticket. Just give me a seat anywhere.

BLAIR: I’m afraid the flight to Portland is full … all sold out.

JALEN: What?!

BLAIR: (to another customer) May I help you?

DENVER: Two tickets for the flight to Portland.

BLAIR: Do you have a reservation?

DENVER: Sorry. Just now decided to go. Got room?

BLAIR: (looking through the papers) I think I can find something…

JALEN: What?

(a bite to eat, perhaps)

HALE: Sorry. We’re closed.

JALEN: Closed? You’ve got cheeseburgers in the warming tray and I’m lookin’ right at the French fries. How much?

HALE: Those are for tomorrow. We cook ahead.

JALEN: You do what?

HALE: (to another customer) May I help you?

BLAIR: Two cheeseburgers and fries.

HALE: Coming right up.

JALEN: What?

(and a contest)

BLAIR: Your word is “airplane.”

HALE: Could I have a definition, please?

BLAIR: Certainly. “An airplane is a large thing with things that takes people to Portland.”

HALE: Thank you. Airplane. A-I-R-P-L-A-N-E. Airplane!

BLAIR: Correct! Now … Mr. Whalen?


BLAIR: It’s time to spell your word.

JALEN: My word?

BLAIR: You’re next.

JALEN: I’m in a spelling bee?

BLAIR: Look, it’s perfectly natural to be nervous. Your word is Athazagoraphobia.”

JALEN:  What?
