SCENE 2

Interior Kitchen. Sophia is sitting at the table pouring some orange juice. Dorothy enters from the Living Room door.

Dorothy
Good morning ma.

Sophia
Good morning pussycat, I just poured you a nice glass of orange.

Dorothy
Ah, thank you. That was very nice of you.

Sophia At The Kitchen Table

Dorothy picks up the glass and takes a sip. It dribbles all over her outfit, which makes Sophia laugh.

Ma, a dribble glass?

Sophia
Yeah, it works better when all that pulp doesn't clog up the dribble hole.

Dorothy walks to the counter and gets a rag to clean herself.

Dorothy
Ma, why did you do this?

Sophia
Maury Heseltein. He won't quit with the practical jokes. I decided I'm going to give him a taste of his own medicine.

Dorothy
Do I look like Maury Heseltein?

Sophia
A little around the eyebrows, but that's not the point. I've got to make sure I have the perfect gag before I spring it on him. Ah, I'm sorry pussycat. No hard feelings?

Sophia extends her hand in friendship.
Dorothy Dribbles Orange Juice

Dorothy
Oh, okay ma... no hard feelings.

Dorothy shakes her hand and is jolted by a hidden hand buzzer. Sophia erupts with laughter.

Dorothy
AHHH! You know, I could really get tired of this.

Dorothy sits down. Blanche enters from the living room door.

Blanche
Good morning girls. Dorothy, you're a mess.

Dorothy
I just spilled orange juice on myself.

Blanche
Oh really? I didn't notice that.
Sophia Shockes Dorothy's Hand

Blanche joins them at the table.

Dorothy
Pour Blanche some orange juice ma.

Blanche
Yeah, I could use some of that. I think I might be coming down with a cold.

Dorothy
Well, it doesn't come as a surprise. I mean, you've spent every afternoon this week standing stark naked in a cold, windy studio.

Blanche
Oh, I didn't catch cold at Laszlo's studio Dorothy. Laszlo keeps me too warm for that. Too warm and too tingly. Too warm and too tingly and too hot.
Sophia, Blanche and Dorothy Sitting At the Kitichen Table

Dorothy
Have some juice anyway Blanche, I'd feel better.

Dorothy hands Blanche the dribble cup of orange juice. Blanche is about to take a drink but decides to speak instead.

Blanche
Not that we actually do anything... in the studio. Laszlo has been a perfect gentleman so far.

Once again Blanche is poised to take a drink from the dribble cup, but decides to say more instead, much to Dorothy's frustration.

I just stand there in front of him in all my luscious nakedness and somehow he manages to suppress the urge to throw me on the floor and ravish me.
Blanche Holding Orange Juice

Sophia
Please, if he throws you on the floor you'll both end up in the apartment below.

Blanche laughs and gives Sophia one of those winking and pointing "Oh you!" looks.

Dorothy
Drink up Blanche.

Just as Blanche is about to take a drink from the cup, the doorbell rings. Blanche sets the cup on the table and gets up to answer the door.
BLanche Winks And Points

Blanche
That must be him now. I just have to get my jacket. We're driving to the museum together.

Before Blanche exits the Kitchen, she drinks from the dribble cup of orange juice with no trouble. After a few good gulps, she sets the half full cup back on the table and exits through the Living Room door. Dorothy, confused by the fact that the cup didn't dribble on Blanche, decides to test the cup by taking a drink. Once again, orange juice dribbles down her blouse. Sophia finds this very amusing and laughs as Dorothy tries to clean herself off. Cut to:
