TRIVIAL

HANK

So I went to the director and threatened to quit! So we are doing Death of A Salesman as a Shakespearean play! That’s why the pantyhose. I also changed the entire script to Shakespearean English! You know what? It works! But it’s more like something his rival might have written. You know who I’m talking about?

GUY

Christopher Marlow.

HANK

“Was this the face that launched a thousand ships and burnt the topless towers of Illium?”

GUY

That’s from Dr. Faustus.

HANK

Correct! You know, you should join my team for trivia night down at the pub. I could use another body. We started out to be a team of four, but it’s just me now. It’s every Thursday. How long are you hoping to work here?

GUY

Not long.

HANK

That’s too bad. I’ve heard so much about Lou’s Daddy. And you finally get a chance to meet me! What do you think of me, Pops? Do I pass the test?

(There is a silence.)

GUY

I can honestly say, I’ve never met anyone like you.
