MINISODE: WASHDAY

NOVA

Strip.

HATOV

What?

NOVA

Strip (beat, w/ emphasis) take your clothes off.

HATOV

Why would I

NOVA

Because they smell, and there’s a washing machine at this site. I’m trying for as few loads as possible.  Strip.

HATOV

But what am I going to wear?

Sound of fabric hitting and Hatov’s protest

NOVA

Robe.  Tie it tight, it’s windy out there.

HATOV

I’m coming with you?

NOVA

There are showers too.  Hot showers.  I think we could both benefit from that.

HATOV

I just think it’s odd that you have a hyperdrive engine but no—

NOVA

You want a hot shower or not?

HATOV

(beat, petulantly)

I guess.

NOVA

(muttering) You guess. (louder)  Grab that bag for me, will you?

HATOV

What’s in it?

NOVA

Hair supplies, I said it was wash day.

HATOV

For the clothes.

NOVA

For everything.

HATOV

And the ship?

NOVA

(beat)

Used to, but I don’t have that sort of energy these days.  Clothes and me, that’s the goal.

HATOV

The ship could use some cleaning.

NOVA

There’s a system.

HATOV

Scattered is not a system, Nova.

NOVA

Bye SAWA

SAWA

Have a nice trip, captain!

HATOV

Bye

SAWA

Have a nice trip, Hatov!

NOVA

If you want to clean, Pretty Boy, be my guest.
