Role Description

Syd: (Lead) from the south and he didn't waste his money on some fancy education. He's found a niche in the city as a handyman and he does quite well. He's got a pretty big TV so he can watch his sister on Jerry Springer. Syd is Issy and Sarina's neighbor, but he's much more than that. He spends a lot of time at Sarina's helping out around the house, doing the "man's work." He doesn't mind helping out as long as it gets him closer to Sarina. She'll break sooner or later, Syd's got nothing but time.

RICK Wow, that’s the biggest buck I’ve
ever seen.

with my pick up truck, yeah, I’ve been pretty lucky.

SCENE Sarina places a plate of food in front of Rick. Syd spreads
overly generous portions of butter on a dinner role.
SYD That’s why I’m trying to get Issy
to focus on the medical field. Doctors today. I don’t need you to nit-pick my lifestyle doc. I need medical advice. I mean I can hardly hold down a meal. I lost most of my taste buds Rick. There’s just gotta be some connection, some medical explanation for all these health problems. Honey, do I have time to step out for a smoke?
