written by Joie

added on: 30 Nov 2000 - based on characters created by Winnie Holzman


(Some kids paint scenary for Our Town - no rehearsals. Enter SHARON and DELIA)

SHARON: Hey, Corey.

COREY: Hey. (turns back to painting. SHARON nudges DELIA)

DELIA: So, uh, do you want some help painting or something? (beat) I heard numbers are low.

COREY: Yeah, you could say that. I mean, a lot of kids have dropped out, so. We've got to have these extra sessions just to finish it.

SHARON: Actually, I'm sorry, I can't stay. I've got yearbook, but I should be able to help later. Bye.


DELIA: See you later.


COREY: Here's a brush. Don't forget to wipe it between each colour, otherwise-

DELIA: The colours get mixed.

COREY: (smiles) Yeah.

DELIA: So, uh, where should I start?

COREY: Well, you could give me a hand on this piece.

DELIA: Great.



DELIA: So, you're really into art?

COREY: Well, yeah. It's just, you know.

DELIA: (sincere) Yeah. I mean, I'm not, like, good at painting or art or whatever, but I enjoy it, if you know what I mean. (smiles)

COREY: (smiles) Yeah, I know what you mean. Well, in my opinion, anyone can express themselves through art, I mean, who's to say that you're not good at art? Everyone has their own style. (nods at shoes) Who said you could paint shoes?

DELIA : Yeah, you're really right. (beat) So, are you, like, painting after school?

COREY: Uh, well, probably. I haven't got anything else to do. Why?

DELIA: Oh, it's just- well, I mean, there's a party on tonight. A lot of people are going, I wondered if you were.

COREY: Well, I didn't get an invite so, you know.

DELIA: Well, I'm inviting you. (smiles) So if you wanted to go...

COREY: Yeah, sure. Great. (beat) Where is it?

DELIA: Um, at Tino's. I've got the address...

COREY: (shakes head) I don't know it. How about I pick you up on the way?

DELIA: (beams) Sure!
