An alarm goes off and Marion wakes up from a deep, possibly alcohol-induced slumber. He puts on a pair of work-pants and an Oxford-shirt with a dark tie then walks out of his room into the kitchen where Theo is cooking breakfast. Marion pours himself some coffee and sits down at the kitchen table.

Oh good, you're awake. Breakfast will be ready in a couple minutes.

Marion looks like death warmed over as he sips on his coffee mug.

Thanks, man. Smells good. I do NOT want to work today.

Theo lights up a joint that was laying on the counter and passes it to Marion. Marion takes a deep drag.

Thank god! I thought we were out.

theo

You're out. And since I'm sharing, why don't you me a favor and read off the headlines for me.

Well, I'm not in the mood to be your news anchor this morning.

theo

Hey! If you want to keep smoking that, you'll read to me. And you'll read it in a stoic, self-effacing manner. So I can at least try to pretend I'm watching the "Washington Journal."
