SCENE 7

 

OFFICE INTERIOR

GLOBAL IT SOLUTIONS

 

Alright Adam?  Didn’t you want a lift back?

 

The walk did me good…  Time to think…  (BEAT) My mind’s made up, Dylan…  Nothing’s going to change unless I make it happen.

 

Yeah yeah…  You’ve said it all before….  You love it here…  It’s all talk…  As usual.

 

I’m forty years old…  Half my life is over…  Gone…  Finito…  And that’s if I’m lucky…  No Dylan…  If I don’t do it now, you’ll end up carrying me out of this place in a box…  (BEAT)  And judging by the way you struggled with that booze earlier that thought alone is reason enough to quit while the going’s good.

 

You can’t be serious….  OK, all joking aside…  You’d miss it…  Whatever you do, you’d be bored stiff within weeks.

 

That’s the whole point, Dylan…  Unless I try, I’ll never know.

 

What about me?  Surely you’ll miss me…  And what about the Web Enabled Vending Machine?

 

You’re making this decision an incredibly easy one, you know.

 

And who’s going to run the Henderson Sweepstake?  Aha…  See…  You haven’t thought this through.

 

I’m sure I can safely leave the Henderson in your very capable hands…  (BEAT) Actually I’m not so sure…  But then again, do I really care?  Even Henderson hasn’t got that long to live if you think about it.

 

Life at this place without the Henderson Sweepstake…  (SHUDDERS)  Doesn’t bear thinking about…  No…  The more I think about it, the more I’m convinced I’m doing the right thing.

 

So when are you off then?  Eh, Mr. Snappy Decision Maker?  When are you going to tell Geoff?  (LAUGHS)  When are you going to tell your wife, more to the point?

 

Carol will support me…  She’ll be behind me 100%.  As to when…  Here’s how I see it…

 

Eh up…  The great master plan.

 

Well it’s plan at least…  Whether it’s great or masterful remains to be seen…  I figure I’ll leave at the end of the year…  I’ll announce my departure at the Christmas party…  After all, don’t want to miss the freebie piss up.

 

Mercenary to the end.

 

Besides…  There’s every possibility that Cheryl’s annual antics will over shadow all other events during the day…  I don’t want to create a fuss.

 

Cunningly clever…  Tony Blair would be proud of you.

 

Is that a compliment?  Anyway…  That gives me two months to figure out my next career move.

 

Not forgetting the Web Enabled Vending Machine.

 

Quite.
