Lennyís last word
SCENE: A doctorís office
Bill is buttoning up his shirt after an examination as doctor fills out the form,
††††††††††† Well, Doc?
††††††††††† Whatís the good word?
††††††††††† Is this something I should worry about?
††††††††††† Nothingís wrong with the kidney as far as I can see.
††††††††††† Then why I am up ten times a night to take a pee?
††††††††††† Have you been drinking a lot lately?
††††††††††† I had one drink.
††††††††††† I know Iím not supposed to but I couldnít resist
††††††††††† And now youíre feeling guilty because you have your best friendís kidney?
††††††††††† Not exactly, Doc.
††††††††††† Lenny was a pain in the ass when he was a live.
††††††††††† He always had to have the last work about everything.
††††††††††† So what does this have to do with the kidney?
††††††††††† Lenny hated how much I drank.
††††††††††† He kept telling me ďitís going to kill you some day.Ē
††††††††††† He must have cared about you to offer to give you his kidney.
††††††††††† He wasnít being kind.
††††††††††† He was just showing me how right he was
††††††††††† And that pissed me off.
††††††††††† People donít generally give up a kidney to make a point
††††††††††† You donít know Lenny.
††††††††††† He would have cut off an arm to win an argument.
††††††††††† Is that why you refused to take his kidney at first?
††††††††††† Damned right
††††††††††† I wasnít going to let that song of a bitch get over on me.
††††††††††† I told him the only way Iíd take his kidney if he was dead.
††††††††††† If he hadnít run his car into that tree, you wouldnít be here now.
††††††††††† I know I ought to be grateful.
††††††††††† But I canít help thinking Lennyís getting over on me somehow.
††††††††††† How is that possible? Lennyís dead.
††††††††††† Think about it, Doc.
††††††††††† One drink and Iím peeing like a horse
††††††††††† Itís Lennyís kidney telling me to stop.
††††††††††† Leave it to that son of a bitch to get in the last word
††††††††††† Even after heís freakiní dead!
