Man 2: (Shrugs.) Guess we got to walk then.
(Short quiet conversation with bus driver ensues. The men climb aboard.)

M2: Who dat?
M1: The girl in the park.

M1: So Wapbopadeebot?
M2: HA! Yeah, man. Wapbopadeebot. It’s birthday time.
M1: You know Tony Bennet sang that song, I Left My Heart in San Francisco?
M2: What about it?
M1: Well you left your heart in…
M2: Man, I ain’t got no heart. Jus somethin poppin in my chest.
M2: Streetcar Named Desire more like it.
(They sigh together.)
M2: Man, I don’t even care. I’m on vacation. I got me a week off.
