A CLERK works behind a counter with his back to the audience. A ROBBER enters, walks up to the counter and
pulls out a gun. The ROBBER breathes as if about to say something, but stops and looks confused. The CLERK
turns around, startled.
ROBBER: Um, hello, I um... Hmmm. I... (thinks) Hmmm. I've... (pause) I've come for something. I just... Hmm.
CLERK: (scared) Is it money, sir?
ROBBER: Money? No, no my good man, this is a donut shop.
CLERK: You have a gun.
ROBBER: Yes. (pause) I have a gun. (thinks) Why am I brandishing this gun?
CLERK: Have you come to rob me sir?
ROBBER: Have I come to rob you? (pause) Yes.
CLERK: So you want money then.
ROBBER: (reflects) No, no I don't think I do.
CLERK: Donuts then?
ROBBER: Please, why would I brandish a gun if all I wanted was donuts?
CLERK: I don't know sir.
ROBBER: That's it! I need bullets. Bullets for this gun please.
CLERK: This is a donut shop sir.
ROBBER: Yes, I realize that young man and this is a robbery. Hand over the bullets!
CLERK: We don't have bullets. Look, there's a gun store three blocks down.
ROBBER: Look this is your last warning. Hand over the bullets and no one gets hurt.
CLERK: Well no one gets hurt anyway because obviously you don't have any bullets in that gun.
ROBBER: How do you know I'm not just low on bullets and am stocking up so I don't run out?
ROBBER: Give me all of your donuts!
ROBBER: You heard me.
CLERK: Okay now what are you going to do with all of these donuts?
ROBBER: What do you think I'm going to do with them? I'm going to eat them.
CLERK: You can't eat all of these at once.
