EXT. ZOO — FARM EXHIBITS — LLAMA PASTURE — DAY

RANDAL the camel grazes in a field of scattered llamas. PIP the gnat just hovers, distracted.

PIP
Joy. Fear. Consciousness. Thought.
Hope. Regret.
(a beat)
…Mistake.

RANDAL
Naw, see… That’s where you’re
wrong, man. Got it all backwards.
S’all good.

PIP
Goodness…subjectivity.
Objectivity…nihilism.
Incontrovertability… This.

RANDAL
Dude.
(eating)
That’s no way to really reach
people, man. You gotta give life
a right to your whole person. I
mean…what else can you, man?
Everyone deserves the whole of
each. S’what makes us real.

PIP
“Reality”: fallacy—unreality:
impossibility. Ignorance,
invention, delusion.
(with disgust)
Embarrassment.

RANDAL
Look, man. You’ll never know
what a person is until you let
yourself be. Gotta leave the
walls where they belong, dude.

PIP
Walls? Belonging? Exposure—
misnomer. Interior, exterior—
indistinction; singularity. Cell?
Body? Galaxy? Singularity.
Discretion—absurdity. One.

Dyl pauses.

RANDAL
…Dude. Much as I like all this
“world is one” talk, man, can’t
appreciate each other without
each other. …You know?
(a beat)
Just think about it, man…
