A female leg in nylons and aheel – and her hand waving a colorful scarf “around the corner” from off stage.

Homeless drunk staggers rt to left. Stays staggering on stage.
Sam knows he’s a pretty good guy.
Looks puffed-up/proud.
He gives money to his church and other charities
All but the drunk gather around and are handed liberal amounts of money. Drunk then goes up optimistically for a handout. Sam puts his noise in the airand walks away – across stage towards the chair.
He likes to keep his body pure by not smoking or drinking alcohol
He “hugs” a large bowl of popcorn stuffing his face and drinking a coke as he sits down to watch T.V. (remote control in hand also)…drunk is peering in from a “window” looking very hungry – the drunk finally digs through a garbage can nearby and finds a wrapper to lick or a bone to gnaw.
