MR. HENDY- What is this one here?
WAITER- That’s philosophy
MRS. HENDY- Is that a sport?
W- No, It’s more of… an attempt to construct a viable hypothesis to explain the meaning of life

FISH 3- What was that?
FISH 5- What´s he saying?

MR- That sounds wonderful. Would you like to talk about the meaning of life, darling?
MRS- Sure, why not?
W- Philosophy for two?
MR- Right
W- Room?
MR- 259
W- 259
MR- How do we…
W- Oh, you folks want me to start you off?
MR- We’d appreciate that
W- Okay! Look. Have you ever wondered just why you’re here?
MR- We went to Miami last year and California this year then…
W- No, no, no. I mean, why we’re here, on this planet
MR- … no
W- Right. You ever wanted to know what it’s all about?
MR- Nope
W- Right-ho!... See, throughout history, there have certain men and women who’ve tried to find the solution to the mysteries of existence.
MRS- Great!
W- And we call these guys: philosophers
MR- Oh!
MRS- And that’s what we’re talking about…
W- Right!
MRS- Oh, that’s neat.
W- You look like you’re getting the idea, so i’ll give you these conversation cards. They’ll tell you a little about philosophical method, names of famous philosophers…
MR- Thank you, thank you very much

MRS- He’s cute
MR- Yeah, real understanding…
MRS- I never knew Schopenhauer was a philosopher
MR- Oh, yeah. He’s the one that begins with an “S”
MRS- Oh
MR- Like Nietzsche
MRS- Does Nietzsche begin with an “S”?
MR- There’s an “S” in Nietzsche
MRS- Oh, yes, there is. Do all philosophers have an “S” in them?
MR- Yeah. I think most of them do
MRS- Does that mean Salena Jones is a philosopher?
MR- Yeah! Right! She could be. She sings about the meaning of life
MRS- Yeah, that’s right… But I don’t think she write her own material…
MR- No? maybe Schopenhauer writes her material…
MRS- No, Burt Bacharach writes it.
MR- But there’s not “S” in Burt Bacharach
MRS- or in Hal David
MR- Who’s Hal David?
MRS- He writes the lyrics. Burt just writes the tunes. Only now, he’s married to Carole Bayer Sager…

MR- Waiter? This conversation isn’t very good
W- Oh… I’m sorry, sir.
