How about that?
Madeline over phone: The man is losing his mind. Can you believe it?
- So, did you schedule the dinner?
- Yes! I mean, a couples dinner?
- He would've never done that when we were together. Never! But for Bonnie, he's Mr. Fucking Sacrifice.
- Why don't you bottle up some of that anger - and put it to good use?
- What do you mean?
- Mm, I think I could use you and Joseph at the meeting with the mayor tomorrow. Joseph can speak to the content of the show and we could use your passion.
- I cannot possibly thank you enough for this, Celeste.
- I haven't done anything yet.
- Thank you.
- I'm actually having fun.
- Thank you, thank you, thank you, thank you, thank you.
- Anyway, you wanna meet at Blue Blues in the morning after drop-off? I'll brief you.
- Okay. 'Night, honey. Mm-hmm. Night-night.
- Briefing? (sighing)
- The mayor is trying to shut down this production of "Avenue Q" at the community theater because it's not appropriate, so I told Madeline I'd help her out.
- Helping her out how? Legal help?
- Yeah.
- Are you practicing law again?
- Not practicing law, just going to a meeting.
- Oh, because this is the town of Monterey, you can't afford to hire an attorney?
- The town of Monterey is the one that's trying to shut the production down.
- Okay. How come we didn't have a conversation about this?
- If you were here long enough to have a conversation. After the talk shifts from the kids, you're off packing your bag for another business trip. You gonna hit me now?
- Do you want me to hit you, Celeste?
- Here we go again.
- Sometimes I wonder.

- No. I just didn't feel like it.

-You found him?
- Well, I think I found him, but it's Saxon Baker. He's an interior designer in San Luis Obispo.
- Hold on, didn't she say his name was Saxon Banks?
- Well, I think maybe he only gave his real first name. She said he was an architect, but sometimes interior designers say they're architects.
- Oh, this is not good.
- Thanks so much for helping us out, but I'm I'm having second thoughts about this.
- What?
- Look, even should we win this battle, we make an enemy of the mayor's office.
- We have all of our funding!
- Long-term, it's not a good idea.
- And we're starting in two weeks, Joseph.
- But what about the next production and the one after that?
- Listen to me, do you think "Avenue Q" is worth fighting for?
- Yeah.
- Well, then what are we talking about?

ТЕКСТ ОТРЫВКА:
- Look, I'm not looking to, like, chill artistic expression. I hear it's a great play. That said, puppets fuck. We can't have puppets fucking in Monterey.
- May may I be heard?
- There is one scene, and one scene only, where two of the puppets simulate sex. There's no nudity.
- Yeah, well, naked puppets don't bother me. Fucking puppets, on the other hand, well, it's vulgar.
- Even if it were, you'd still have to prove that it has no legal, artistic, or literary value.
- I'm not talking about legals.
- We're gonna have to talk about the
- To shut down a show simply because it makes you uncomfortable two weeks before it's about to open, I don't think that that's
- Okay, look, look. I'm new to the whole controversy, okay? It's just been brought to my attention, mostly by concerned parents, so I'm bringing a fresh eye to this thing, you know? You can tell me I'm full of shit. It wouldn't be the first. But from my perspective, the whole point of the theater is to bring community together. You know, to entertain. To have an affirming effect on society. This thing here? It's already divisive.
- True. And I'm certainly not trying to connect the two, but, uh, there are zoning laws that prohibit sex shops and strip clubs This is hardly that.
- This play deals with love, and racism, and same-sex marriage, which are all redeeming themes, conversations this community should be having. I mean, and if you want to continue to have
- Puppets fuck.
- You are adorable. May I speak for a moment? Not as a member of the Monterey Planning Board, but, really, as a mom? I think we can agree that the world has gone to hell, right? I mean, we're living in a time where our little ones have lockdown drills at school because of gun violence. They don't even feel safe in their own classroom. So what if we brought back a little good old-fashioned nostalgia? You know, a little "Sound of Music"? I mean, we're Monterey, right? So, what do we want to say? And maybe the question isn't "What is this play?" but "Who are we?"
- I take your point. It's a good one. We, uh we all have small children and this is the village that we've chosen to raise them in. And, um, I would say, among other things, I hope we're open-minded. I mean, I think what draws a lot of people to Monterey is its progressiveness. But opinions aside, legally, you've already lost. The California Constitution goes way further than the federal one to protect the First Amendment. But to answer your question, Renata "Who are we?" I don't think we want to become synonymous with suppression and prior restraint. We're going to face accusations of being anti-American and anti-free speech. I mean, that's not the politics that you've been practicing, Mayor Bartley. So I would say there are bigger black eyes than putting on a controversial musical, especially ones that have won Tonys.

You know, to entertain.

Look at the script. Why did Celeste feel ashamed?

- Stick that up your tight ass, bitch! You were fucking brilliant!
- Oh, really?
- Um, yeah. It's actually kind of annoying that you look like that and you're smart and educated and intelligent and sympathetic. You even had Cruella agreeing with you in the end. Did you see her face? I mean, come on!
- Yeah, thanks.
- What? What's wrong, honey?
- Nothing, nothing. I'm sorry. God Oh, stop it, Celeste! I don't know where this is coming from. I really don't.
- Well, maybe you do, honey.
- It's just for six years I've been wiping runny noses, organizing playdates, doing, uh everything to be a good mom, you know? And today I felt alive, I felt good. Is that crazy?
- No.
- I feel so ashamed for saying this, but being a mother, it's not enough for me. It's just not. It's not even close. It's evil, right? I'm evil. I've said it out loud.
- You are not evil.
- I am. This is
- I'm not gonna let you say that.
- What, you think it? Do you, ever?
- Yes. I got so consumed with Abigail and Chloe. Their lives were everything that I almost forgot I had my own. And and I just had to do something, so I decided to volunteer at the theater. I'm not a performer. I'm not a director. I didn't know what to do, but it just made me feel like I was doing something. I wanted more, you know? I want more of that! That feeling. 'Cause that made me feel alive, too! I want more! And you know what?
- What?
- You're gonna be a lawyer again. I mean, I have never seen you like that. For four years I've known you, and your face looked different, your body changed. You miss it.
- Mm-hmm. You're right. I fucking miss it!

ТЕКСТ ОТРЫВКА:
- Thank you for agreeing to meet me. I would've asked you to come to the school, but it's kind of a fish bowl there. People can gossip.
- What's going on?
- I have reason to suspect, and only suspect, that Amabella Klein is still being bullied, and that Ziggy may be the culprit. I haven't seen anything, but I feel certain that something is going on with Amabella. She's made no implications. In fact she claims that she and Ziggy are friends. And my personal experience of Ziggy he is a sweet little boy.
- Yeah, so then where is all this coming from?
- Well, I sensed some tension between them this morning. Amabella was visibly upset about something. I observed Ziggy looking at her. And from my vantage point, he appeared to know exactly what she was upset about.
- Maybe he saw her being bullied. Maybe he was concerned for her.
- That could very well be, though it wasn't my take. Look, if I think that a child is being physically or emotionally abused, it is my duty to go forward with that, first and foremost, to the parents.
- What fucking evidence do you have?
- Jane, believe it or not, I'm actually on your side here.
- No, you know what? If you were on my side, you would not go to Amabella's parents. That is only going to make things worse. You would find another solution. This is ridiculous.
- Okay. Do you have any reason to suspect that Ziggy could be violent?
- No.
- Maybe something from his past.
- No! Ziggy is a sweet, docile young boy. He's never hurt a fly. Wouldn't someone have fucking seen this, for God's sakes? They're in a classroom!
- Okay, you know what? Maybe you're gonna think this is way off-book, but

- My major concern is as to how he might react. To the idea that you want to go back to work?
- What did he say, his words exactly? That he was afraid of me, um going through him. Yeah, so I'm I suppose I'm just worried that he's gonna take it as a rejection.
- You were working when he first met you and when he fell in love with you, right?
