HE
How is it out there?

SHE
Dark

HE
Dark?

SHE
Dark and cold. And wet of course.

HE
Anything else?

SHE
Did I mention it was cold? Freezing really.

HE
Sad.

SHE
Yes. Dark, cold, wet and sad. That’s the world out there.
For the moment.

HE
Okay. Thanks for the rapport.
What are we having for lunch?
