in and sits down next to him without Rick noticing.CHAD: Anything of importance in there that you care to share?RICK: Huh? (Turns and recognizes Chad and is very surprised.) Chad?
CHAD: Surprised to see me, huh?
RICK: Well… yes…
CHAD: Yeah, well…I can’t stay long, but I did want to have a little
chat with you.
RICK: I don’t understand…
CHAD: Don’t try to figure it out, just accept it.
RICK: You realize I wasn’t expecting you.
CHAD: I know.
RICK: Wow, this gives me a chance to tell you… well, how much I’ve
RICK: I really hated for our friendship to end so suddenly. I
always enjoyed hanging out with you and doing stuff together.
CHAD: We certainly have good memories. All those games we went to
…movies …barbecues …and just long talks.
RICK: I really miss that.
CHAD: Well, we can’t get it back.
RICK: I guess not.
CHAD: How’s Lori?
RICK: She’s good. Busy as ever.
CHAD: And your folks?
RICK: They’re doing okay.
CHAD: I always liked being in their home and being around them.
CHAD: Not like my family.
RICK: How is your family?
CHAD: Who knows? I was going to ask you that question.
RICK: Well, I haven’t been in contact with them since… well, you
CHAD: It’s a shame, really. I guess they will end up just like me.
RICK: We all do eventually, I guess.
CHAD: Really? Is that what you think? Cuz that’s not the way it’s
been explained to me. Aren’t you supposed to know that stuff?
RICK: I wasn’t sure what you were getting at.
CHAD: Weren’t you?
RICK: You seem a bit tense.
CHAD: Oh, you noticed. I thought I was hiding it pretty well. I
didn’t want to upset you.
RICK: If you didn’t want to upset me, then what are you doing here?
What do you want from me?
CHAD: An apology I suppose.
RICK: Apologize? For what?
CHAD: (Short laugh) It won’t make any difference any way. Forget
RICK: I don’t understand.
CHAD: Don’t you? Think about it. Why would I come back to talk to
RICK: (Getting upset) I don’t know. I didn’t know you could. What
is this about, Chad?
CHAD: You really don’t know?
RICK: Something tells me it has to do with your death…did I…? Chad,
I was not even there!
CHAD: It’s not about my death, Rick. It’s about my life. It’s
about my afterlife.
RICK: Where are you spending it, Chad?
CHAD: Where indeed! You will never know what it’s really like.
Because for you… hell doesn’t have any concern. You have heaven to
look forward to.
RICK: You’re …in….hell?
