(Scene opens with Betty staring at a dead mutt that is attached to a bedazzled dog collar and chain that Cobb is squeezing in her swollen hand)
COBB: Oh it’s just a blessing!
COBB: You know the thing with the yard
COBB: You know! The place…with the beds!!
Betty: The House?
Betty: The House, Cobb?
COBB: (smiling) Who?
Betty: The place where you live with your boyfriend and your herpes.
COBB: Oh THE HOUSE!
Betty: Yes COBB the house….I’m leaving
COBB: Are you angry? I’m going to the 21 flavors with my dog, I got him a leash today
Betty: I’m leaving and it’s 31 flavors
COBB: NO WAIT!! What they have 31 flavors now? Bless their hearts…8 more flavors
Betty: It’s ten more
COBB: My goodness even better (licking her lips and bending over to pick up the dead dog)
Come on puddles…he is such a good dog Bertha, never barks at anyone! (Looking at Puddle’s dead eyes and talking baby talk) That because he a good Christian doggy huh puddles? Tell Bertha about Jesus my boy…(points the dogs paw at Betty) You’re a sinner! You’re gonna burn hahahahaha …momma is gonna take you to ice cream’s house because I’m a good momma! Even the dog says so Bertha.
Betty: It’s Betty… my name is Betty and the dog isn’t listening COBB! He isn’t barking at anyone because he can’t bark, he is DEAD! I gotta go!!!
COBB: OK uh..uh…don’t you wanna see Puddle’s finger paintings before you leave? I can give you a ride to 21 flavors, I mean I would take you all the way home but I’m broke and the dog doesn’t like to ride in the car!
Betty: But the dog is dead, shall I use hand puppets here?
COBB: (looking up at the sky) ….mmmm hand puppets
Betty: How can the dog….never mind!
COBB: I know but I can tell he doesn’t like it Betty, when I drive too fast on the bridge he falls off the seat cushion. Then he just lays there.
Betty: Fascinating, but I’m due back on the planet earth soooo…
COBB: Hahahaha! You always make me laugh Betty, the planet earth she says! Hahahaha! This is California silly!
