A JACKE WILSON OBJECTINO
Two young parents are admiring their sleeping six-month-old boy.
FATHER: He’s getting so big—pretty soon he’ll be learning how to read, and we’ll be watching all those great educational shows, like Sesame Street and Electric Company…
MOTHER: Oh yeah! Electric Company. Those two silhouettes talking to each other.
[MOTHER holds up hands like two puppets facing each other]
MOTHER [opening one hand]: Sh…
[Long pause. MOTHER stares at the other hand.]
[Long pause. MOTHER does not open the other hand.]
MOTHER [dropping her hands to her sides]: The only thing I could think of was shit!!!
