(It is earlier this evening. E.S. and FAUSTUS are lying in bed lazily.)

E.S.: I need to get up.
FAUSTUS: Okay. I’m going to count down from three. On one, let’s both get up.
E.S.: Okay.
FAUSTUS: Three…. Two…. One!

(FAUSTUS gets up. E.S. stays right where he is.)

FAUSTUS: You have a very idiosyncratic definition of “both.”
E.S.: I’ve changed my mind. I’m just going to lie here and become a big lump.
FAUSTUS: Become?

(E.S. uses his foot to push FAUSTUS to the edge of the bed.)

E.S.: Did you almost fall off the bed?
E.S.: …
E.S.: Well, I would have said I was sorry.

    This scene is lifted from an old Calvin and Hobbes strip, isn’t it?

  4. Birdie, I’m so glad to participate in the PR effort.
