MERYL: Thank you, sweetie.

TRUMAN: I need to talk to you, but let’s go outside.

MERYL: I'd love to, but, I'm really late.

TRUMAN: What's your rush?

MERYL: Surgery. There was that--that elevator disaster downtown. It was on the news, last night. This--this cable just snapped. This elevator ju--it just plummeted down ten flights with nonunion workers. Just monstrous. You know, that--that building…it's right next door to where you work. Can you imagine if you had been in there? It's not even worth thinking about. Anyway, I have an amputation on one of the young women who was…in that elevator. She's very young. It's very sad. Anyway, um…wish me luck.

TRUMAN: I'll cross my fingers for you.

Hospital


RECEPTIONIST: Ah, excuse me! Excuse me. May uh...May I help you?

TRUMAN: Well, uh...yes. I'm looking for my wife. Nurse Burbank. It's very important.

RECEPTIONIST: You know what, I'm afraid that that's um...that's not possible. She's in pre-op.

TRUMAN: Sure…Okay, fine. Can you pass along a message?
