(ANNA and CARRIE nod their heads.)
CAIN How big is the Mammoth steak?
WAITRESS 28 ounces.
CAIN I’ll have that.
(The WAITRESS takes the menus and leaves.)
CARRIE Well, this is niiiiccce.
ANNA It is. Cain and Abel like to come here – 2
. a lot.
CARRIE How long have you been dating Abel?
ANNA A few months now. He is very “able” as
. the perfect date and gentleman.
(CAIN rolls his eyes. CARRIE grabs CAIN’s arm with
a playful squeeze.)
CARRIE Well, Cain is - my little sugar”cane”.
(CAIN runs his hand down his face in embarrassment.)
ANNA you’re his 32nd girlfriend. I don’t know
. What the problem is.
CARRIE It’s because he’s never dated ME.
. Oh! That was fast.
(WAITRESS puts two plates down in front of the men,
and glasses in front of the girls.
ANNA eyes ABEL’s plate.)
ANNA That DOES look good.
ABEL Did you want some? Really, I don’t mind.
. There’s more than enough.
ANNA As long as you don’t mind.
(WAITRESS quickly puts down an empty plate in front of ANNA.
ABEL is generous in filling up ANNA’s plate.)
ANNA You don’t have to give me so much.
ABEL I want to make sure you have something of
. each fruit.
ANNA You’re giving me all the best pieces.
. Save some for yourself.
ABEL There’s plenty here.
ANNA You’re so sweet.
(CAIN has been gobbling down his meat. CARRIE eyes 3
CAIN’s plate longingly. CAIN puts a protect arm around
the plate to continue eating in peace.)
CARRIE That sure looks good.
CAIN It IS good.
CARRIE Could I have some?
CAIN Why didn’t you order something if you wanted
. to eat?
CARRIE I’m not THAT hungry. I – just want a taste.
(CAIN looks at CARRIE’s pleading eyes, then studies
his steak. Finally CAIN carefully cuts off a tiny piece
and hands the fork to CARRIE.)
CARRIE That’s just a piece of fat.
(Shrugging, CAIN keeps eating, then hands CARRIE a bone.)
CAIN Here, you can chew on the bones.
(Insulted and about to cry, CARRIE rushes out.)
CAIN (leans back, pats stomach, sighs) That was good.
ABEL You didn’t even finish your steak.
CAIN Yeah, it was huge.
ANNA You could have given her some.
CAIN It was mine!
ANNA You’re such a jerk! No wonder you can’t
. keep a girlfriend.
(ANNA storms off. ABEL shakes his head at CAIN
as they get up from the table to leave.)
ABEL You never learn.
WAITRESS (to herself) Some people never want to change.
