Man: There’s nothing magical about the couch. It just helps people to be comfortable. So they can focus on their thoughts.
Death [lying back, fidgeting]: I know there’s nothing magical about the couch.
Man: Okay. Great. So tell me what’s on your mind.
Death: It’s just that I keep hearing people use this phrase, all the time. ‘When I woke up this morning I felt like death.’
Death: And they have no idea how I feel!
Man: That troubles you.
Death: I find it upsetting. It’s… It’s presumptuous.
Man: What else?
Death: That’s it. [gets up from the couch] I’ll go now.
Man: It’s good that you’ve recognized it.
Death: Thank you. Just needed to get it off my chest. [goes to the door] I’ll be back tomorrow.
Man: Um. Maybe not ’til after the long weekend?
Death [as he closes the door behind him]: Fine.
