The Script For Today's Comic!
Breakin’ In Da Benjamins
Tom and Karla are, once again, in the kitchen. Tom is sorting through the mail, and pulls out an envelope that catches his eye.
TOM: Hey! My check’s here! Joey told me he got his….
KARLA (confused): Your check?
TOM: My first royalty check. My old band Program finally earned out our advance!
TOM (reminiscing, a little fondly, as Karla looks on proudly – she likes having a husband who’s made a difference, even if she didn’t like his band or his music): It’s nice to know you’re not forgotten. I mean, for six years Program was my life – I slept in alleys so we could keep touring.
TOM: It’s good to know that someone’s still listening to the music.
KARLA (immediately after this speech, in the same panel): And all that effort has earned you….?
TOM (having opened the envelope, looking at it in shell shock, so stunned he can hardly believe it): $32.60.
KARLA (patting Tom on the shoulder fondly, staring at the envelope with him): Six years of alley-sleeping is going to buy us one wild night at Olive Garden.
