Adam comes rushing over at this point: "Jane! Hey! It was all falling apart --" Joan: "I know, I saw it!" He continues, "And then it was burning, and then you know, it got foggy, but then when, you know, you sang that song Jane, that amazing song " He takes her face in his hands and kisses her. "You know what would be the perfect school for us? North Carolina School of the Arts. Okay? You can sing, and I'll do art " Joan has a look of trepidation on her face. Adam: "What?" Joan doesn't know if she wants to sing. Adam: "Oh. Okay " Joan: "I mean, you know, if you wanna go there " Adam: "No, no, no, no, no, no. We're picking a place together." Joan: "Adam: are you really gonna be happy if you don't go where you want because of me?" He doesn't know what to say because he knows she's right. She adds, "We want to control this because we love each other but that's exactly why we shouldn't." Adam looks sad: "But if we go to separate places " Joan: "I know, we won't know how things turn out." You wouldn't anyway. "Just like tonight, but tonight turned out to be pretty amazing. I want that for you; don't you want that for me?" Adam: "Yeah it's scary." Joan: "I know. You know I could never get into Berkeley and California is just way too Beach Boys for me." Adam, not ready to let the dream die, says softly, "You might like it." Joan says she'll visit. She might be strong enough for this, but I wonder if Adam is.
The Girardis (minus Kevin) are all having a post-play snack in the kitchen.
