very dim

Helen is now at the front of the queue, and hands her coat
over imperiously.

HELEN
We should go shopping together
one day, if you want.

She takes a ticket from the cloakroom lady.

JENNY
That would be nice. But South
Ken… C’est beaucoup trop cher
pour moi.

They stare at each other. Helen is bewildered, Jenny
embarrassed.

HELEN
Sorry?

JENNY
I just said….It was too
expensive for me.

HELEN
No you didn’t. You said something
completely different.

JENNY
I just…Well, I said it in
French.

HELEN
In French? Why?

Jenny feels humiliated; she is yet to realise what we can
see – that Helen is simply very dim.
