WINNICOTT
I didn't say it was easy, but you can ask for help.

MAYA
And what help will I get? Some nurse going to talk to me for ten minutes, tell me how lucky I am, how much I have going for me, how I should sleep it off and I'll feel better in the morning?

WINNICOTT
I'd like to think our staff is a little better trained than that.

MAYA
We're wasting time. Clock's ticking, and we're not talking about my feelings yet.

WINNICOTT
And we won't. I can sit here all day. I get paid regardless.

MAYA
I'm a paycheck. I know that. So why do you care whether I do it or not?

WINNICOTT
I suppose if you can promise to stick it out, well then I'll get paid longer.

MAYA
What?!

WINNICOTT
That was a joke.

MAYA
You're not funny.

WINNICOTT
Actually, I am quite funny. I just don't think you're in the frame of mind to appreciate it.
