      • Harry: What was so urgent that you wanted to talk to me about Ellen?
        Ellen: I checked at the hospital today, the person goes home at the end of the week.
        Harry: I knew that.
        Ellen: Harry, when I think of how close I came to killing that man.
        Harry: Well you didn't.
        Ellen: No I didn't, I didn't even see him, I was so drunk, he wasn't even a blurr.
        Harry: Now come on Ellen.
        Ellen: What next? What new escapade for the madcap alcholic? Maybe a school bus, wipe out the whole kindergarten, really hit the jackpot. No, I'm not smashing into anything Harry.
        Harry: (resigned) Of course you aren't.
        Ellen: I'm thru nearly killing people, shouting drunken curses and police stations, being bundled into strait jackets and dropped off to a sanitarium. And seeing lovely little goodies drift thru the walls. Oh I didn't tell you, last time I was being pursued by an open coffin, now that's a little more original than bats and pink elephants wouldn't you say. Fun and games are over, guess why.
        Harry: I don't know why but I'm sure I'm in favor of it.
        Ellen: Because I've stopped kidding myself about us.
        Harry: About us?
        Ellen: Harry I have a little speech to make, a simple sober little speech which couldn't be said before because of five hundred drinks ago. I don't need alcohol anymore, I don't need you anymore. I mean it Harry.
        Harry: You mean what?
        Ellen: I mean at last I've faced the truth, a tired little cliche isn't it but just what happened and I don't need a drink instead I don't need to have an affair instead and I don't need anything instead.
        Harry: Where's the other bottle of booze?
