Joan: Well, I had this monologue in class today, and I was prepared, I mean like really prepared. You know "Suddenly Last Summer" by Tennesee Williams? (Keenan shakes his head "no") Oh, it's one of my favorites, great story. It's about this girl Katherine, moi, who's slated for a lobotomy because the mother of her cousin wants to keep her mouth shut about certain goings on involving the old lady's son Sebastian. You see, the women sort of pimp for cousin Sebastian. Are you following all this? Anyway, it turns out that on their travels, Sebastian likes to troll the beaches for young native boys to satisfy his base instinct. Well, one hot summer afternoon in Cartehania, the boys decide they have had quite enough of Sebastians shananigans and, well...they eat him. No, they really eat him. They devour him! In short, he's lunch. And Katherine witnesses every course from soup to nuts, if you pardon the expression. So, I'm about to do this killer monologue, I'm up next.
