Why Men Go to Sea
(MUSIC UNDER THROUGHOUT)
GK: WHY MEN GO TO SEA
SS: Remember what day today is?
SS: It's such an important day to me I went to the hair salon. Did you notice?
TR: Of course.
SS: It's the anniversary of our first date. Remember?
SS: Remember where we went?
TR: We went to see "Star Wars"—
SS: That must've been with somebody else. You and I went to the symphony.
TR: Oh. Right.
SS: Who'd you go see "Star Wars" with?
TR: I forget.
SS: Do you notice anything different about my hair?
TR: Different about your hair?
TR: Now? (THREE BEATS) Like what?
SS: I mean, the color?
TR: Is it lighter?
SS: It's darker...
TR: Darker! Right. I see it now.
SS: I had it dyed auburn.
TR: Right. That's nice. I like that.
SS: You didn't even notice.
TR: I knew something was different.
SS: What else is different about me?
TR: (TWO BEATS) Is it above your waist or below?
SS: Just look. Notice anything?
GK: Why Men Go To Sea.....because when you're out on the ocean (BIG BOAT MOTOR, WAVES, GULLS) pulling in cod (WINCH) no guy ever turns to you and says.....(FN: Do you like my hair this way?)
GK: It doesn’t happen. That's why they're out there. A message in the public interest. (GULLS)
