Minute 118: They Just Don’t Like Each Other


“You’re irresistible,” says Peggy to Woody.

“Then why do you go on resisting me?” asks Woody. All marriages don’t have to be like that one.”

“Which one?” asks Peggy.

“Your friends, Fred and Marie,” replies Woody.

“What’s wrong with their marriage?” asks Peggy.

“Nothing, except one slight detail,” says Woody. “They just don’t like each other.”

Fred and Marie return to the table.

“It’s murder on the dance floor. It’s awful!” says Marie.

“You don’t wanna dance any more?” asks Woody.

“Love to!” says Marie. She turns to Peggy. “You don’t mind if I borrow him?”

“No, not at all,” says Peggy. Marie and Woody head for the dance floor.

“Why did you do this, Peggy?” asks Fred.

“Do what?” asks Peggy. “What do you mean?”

“Calling up Marie,” says Fred. “And going out like this. Together.”

“I did it deliberately,” says Peggy.

“Why?” asks Fred.

“To prove to myself that what happened this afternoon didn’t really happen,” says Peggy.
