She Walked Out On Me... FILE
You may be right—that it can last. But it didn’t. She walked out on me.

LIZZIE
Was it someone else?

FILE
Yes it was. He was a schoolteacher. Dammit, a schoolteacher!

LIZZIE
Well, what was he like?

FILE
He had weak hands and nearsighted eyes—
and he always looked like he was about ready to faint—and she ran off with him!
And there I was—

LIZZIE
Well, maybe the schoolteacher needed her and you didn’t.

FILE
Sure I needed her!

LIZZIE
Did you tell her so?

FILE
No, I didn’t. If it gets so bad you gotta say things like that—

LIZZIE
You gotta say things like that. File, if you’d have asked, maybe she mighta stayed!

FILE
I know damn well she mighta stayed! The night she left, she said to me: “Tell me—don’t go!”

LIZZIE
And you didn’t?

FILE
I tried—I couldn’t!

LIZZIE
Oh, pride!

FILE
If a woman wants to go, let her go! If you have to hold her back—

LIZZIE
File, it’s just two words—“don’t go”—and you couldn’t say them?

FILE
It’s not the words. It’s beggin’—and I won’t beg!

LIZZIE
Oh, well you are a fool!

(Abruptly realizing she has put her foot in it with her impulsive honesty, she is stricken.)

Oh, my, what am I getting’ so serious about?
I’m not a serious-talkin’ girl at all—not at all! No, I’m not. What I am is happy-go-lucky!
Oh my! What a lovely
black bow tie! Did I ever tell you I just adore a man in a black bow tie! Do you make it yourself?

FILE
No, it comes ready made.

LIZZIE
Oh! Well it’s lovely, and look at your shiny buttons. Can I count your buttons?
Let’s see, you got one—two—three—

FILE
Quit that! Stop sashayin’ around, makin’ a fool of yourself!

LIZZIE
And those pearly white teeth!

FILE
Stop it! What do you take me for? What do you take yourself for?

LIZZIE
File, I… I was just—

FILE
Don’t! Don’t be so damn ridiculous. Be yourself!

LIZZIE
File!
File!
