But it is obvious that he doesn’t want to be there.
GUY 2 yawns and tries to stay awake, but he keeps
GUY 3 pulls out a pen and doodles on his shoe.
GUY 2 shifts in his seat, then props himself up
on his elbows. As he nods off, his elbow slips.

Finally, GUY 3 is annoyed and looks at GUY 2.
GUY 2 stops shaking his foot. Slowly, he begins
