Vanya Script Sides

SONIA
I brought you coffee, dearest Vanya.
VANYA
I have some.
SONIA
Oh. But I bring you coffee every morning.
VANYA
Well, yes, but you weren’t available.
SONIA
Well, I was briefly in the bathroom, you couldn’t wait?
VANYA
I don’t know. The coffee was made, you weren’t there, I’m capable of pouring coffee into a cup.
SONIA
But I like bringing you coffee in the morning.
VANYA
Fine Sonia. Here, take this cup and give me that one.
SONIA
Alright.
VANYA
I’m afraid the other cup tasted better.
SONIA
Well it’s the same coffee.
VANYA
Well maybe I put in more milk than you did. Maybe that’s why it tastes better.
SONIA
Don’t I usually put in the right amount of milk?
VANYA
Well, yes. It’s just that I was drinking one coffee, and liking it, and then suddenly there’s a different cup of coffee, and I’m liking it slightly less. It’s no big deal. I’m just making pleasant conversation.
SONIA
That’s not making pleasant conversation. It’s first thing in the morning, and you’re implying I don’t do anything right.
VANYA
Forget it! The coffee’s delicious,
I love it!
SONIA
Oh, for God’s sake. Here take the
original cup back.
VANYA
No, no, it’s not that different.
I’m sorry I said anything.
