Sample of script:

 

Tyler, Morgan, Payton sitting upstage

Jamie comes onstage to downstage location, Payton rolls eyes, looks angry

 

Morgan:          What’s wrong Payton, something you don’t like about Jamie being here?

 

Payton:            It’s a free country Morgan, I guess anyone can come and go anywhere they want to.

 

Tyler:               Wow, Payton! . . . Doesn’t sound like you are too glad to see Jamie.

 

Payton:            Guess you could say Jamie isn't at the top of my Christmas card list.

 

Morgan:          Did something happen between you and Jamie?

 

Payton:            Let’s just say we have issues. .  But that’s OK, since I am a Christian I have forgiven Jamie.

 

VOG:              You maybe are forgetting my instructions are to forgive and forget. Sounds to me you are forgiving and remembering.

 

all actors react to VOG

 

Morgan:          You scare me when you do that!

 

VOG:              Sometimes maybe that’s a good thing.

 

Payton:            But God, if you remember I prayed about it and I said I forgave Jamie, and I even asked you to forgive him too.

 

VOG:              Quick instruction for you Payton . . .  when you pray don’t give me instructions, just report for duty.

 

Payton:            Sorry God.

 

VOG:              Yes Payton, I sense you are indeed sorry. . . Now back to this issue with Jamie.

 

Payton:            That’s just a matter between me and Jamie.

 

VOG:              Actually Payton, that’s where you are wrong. If you talked with Jamie about this . . . which I strongly suggest you do . .  you would actually find out Jamie has no idea what you are talking about.

 

Payton:            Well isn't that just great! . . Here I follow your instructions and I forgive Jamie for his trespasses or debts or whatever against me . .  and he doesn’t even remember.
