PASSING BECHDEL'S TEST BY JEFFREY LO (DOWNLOAD PDF HERE)
MICHELLE and COURTNEY are walking in opposite directions.
MICHELLE trips and falls to her knee.
COURTNEY rushes to MICHELLE.
COURTNEY: Oh my gosh, are you ok?
MICHELLE: Yeah, just hit my knee right on the pavement.
COURTNEY: Ouch. That must’ve hurt.
MICHELLE rubs her knee.
COURTNEY: Do you think you need to go to the hospital or anything to get it checked?
MICHELLE: No, I think it’ll be ok.
MICHELLE: Yeah, I’m almost home so I’ll ice it when I get home.
MICHELLE: Thank you though.
COURNEY: Of course.
MICHELLE extends her hand out for a handshake.
MICHELLE: I’m Michelle.
The two women shake hands.
MICHELLE: It’s nice to meet you.
COURTNEY: You too. Alright, well I better be off.
MICHELLE chuckles a little to herself.
COURTNEY: Why are you laughing?
MICHELLE: Oh nothing, just that earlier today I read about the Bechdel test.
COURTNEY: Oh yeah! I know about that.
MICHELLE: Yeah, so if we were in a movie or a play or something right now. We’d totally pass it.
COURTNEY: Right? Like women talk about more than just men.
MICHELLE: What a concept!
The two women laugh together.
WILL enters and starts walking towards COURTNEY and MICHELLE.
WILL is a total hunk.
WILL passes the two ladies and smiles as he walks by.
COURTNEY: Well, hello there Mr. Hunky…
The two women realize what just happened.
END OF PLAY.
