ARCHIE #1 with Kate (and Dan)

FADE IN… Dan and Kate are grabbing a burger and chocolate banana malt at a local burger joint. The malt is better than the burger, and the joint’s kitschy interior is trying too hard. But it’s a fun time. K: Look at all this Happy Days type junk on the wall. Hey isn’t that Howdy Doody? D: How would I know? ::looks:: Yup. That’s Howdy Doody. K: You look kinda bored. D: I just don’t like when things try too hard. It comes off as disingenuous, you know? But if things are really clicking? Everything is in synch and natural? Yeah, that’s the good stuff. K: Are you talking about Art, Life, or that chocolate banana malt you just polished off...
