Our morning conversation

               INT. DAY, DINING ROOM

                                   CHANDRA
                         I talked with Jon & Lisa last night
                         and was a non-family witness that
                         they don't want to be kept alive
                         with a feeding tube.

                                   JASON
                         Did you sign something?

                                   CHANDRA
                         No.

                                   JASON
                         Ok-- that probably won't count
                         then. You need to get something on
                         paper.

                                   CHANDRA
                         Oh.
                             (pauses)
                         Just for the record, I don't want
                         to be kept alive, either.

                                   JASON
                         Ok.
                             (pauses)
                         I want to be kept alive, though.

                                   CHANDRA
                         Really?

                                   JASON
                         Yes. Only under certain conditions,
                         though. I want to be kept alive and
                         propped up in Congress as a public
                         testament to the value of life. I
                         also want to wear seasonally
                         appropriate hats.

                                   CHANDRA
                         Like for Dr. Seuss' birthday?

                                   JASON
                         Sure, and a yarmulke for Hannukkah
                         and Yom Kippur, a Santa hat for
                         Christmas, a green hat for St.
                         Patrick's Day. And a sombrero for
                         Cinco de Maya. 

                                   CHANDRA
                         How about beads for Mardi Gras?

                                   JASON
                         Sure-- and if the women in Congress
                         flash me, they can take a set of
                         beads.

                                   CHANDRA
                         You really want Hillary Clinton to
                         flash you?

                                   JASON
                         Hey, if she really valued life, she
                         would.
