After the crucifixion of Jesus
ZAC and SIAH sit on the ground shell shocked.
SIAH: Well I can’t unsee that…
ZAC: I can’t believe it…
SIAH: That was certainly… a lot.
SIAH: I know… I mean he was just… (Beat)Hey Zac.
SIAH: Didn’t you think that they might get out of it?
ZAC: What are you talking about Siah?
SIAH: I kinda thought they might’ve been sharing a look.
SIAH: Jesus and the thief.
ZAC: Which one?
SIAH: The thief. The thief on the crossnext to Jesus on the cross.
ZAC: There were two of them on either side of Jesus.
SIAH: The thief!
ZAC: They were both thieves!
SIAH: Oh…. They were both thieves?
SIAH: Wow… Times are tough. What were their names?
ZAC: I don’t know.
SIAH: Wasn’t one of them named like… Dismas? … Dimas? …. Demas?
ZAC: I really don’t know Josiah. Thief 1 and thief 2.
SIAH: Hah. Thief 1 and thief 2. Well, I’m talking about the nice thief.
ZAC: Which one was the nice thief?
SIAH: The nice thief was the one sharing a look with Jesus.
ZAC: Did you know him?
ZAC: Then how do you know he’s a “nice thief”?
SIAH: Because of his eyes.
ZAC: What about his eyes?
SIAH: He had kind eyes. … That other guy. He had jerk eyes. Judas eyes.
ZAC: Fuck that guy.
SIAH: You know my sister thought he was cute, Judas.She was asking me all about him and I told her – Nah Aria. Stay away from him. You don’t want a part of that. Aria said, “Why? What do you know?” And I said look at Judas’ eyes. You can just tell. You don’t wanna spend the rest of your life with eyes like that. Wake up in the morning and boom – there are those eyes. Just staring at you. (Scoffs:)Judas…
ZAC: Fuck that guy.
SIAH: Anyway, kind eyes thief and J – I thought they had some sort of plan to get out of all this.
ZAC: You’re ridiculous.
SIAH: Nah, man, I’m serious! I thought they had something going on.
ZAC: And what made you think that?
SIAH: Kind eyes thief and Jeezy – they shared a look.
SIAH: Don’t you think that means something?
ZAC: I think it means they were both nailed to wooden crosses, both in a whole lot of paint and both about to die.
SIAH: And them sharing a look meant…?
ZAC: This really sucks.This thing we are going through right now… really really sucks.
