Adam and Joan are in his shed, looking at a miniature model of his set for the play. He thinks he might be getting in over his head. Joan: "Adam you've been building things since you were teething. And you need to expand your portfolio. This is your chance." Adam thinks Johnny Broadway seems pretty much like "a loon." Joan: "Totally, but look at this, it's brilliant. I mean, how stoked are you to see this big, you know, with zombies walking all over it?" Adam thinks that would be pretty cool. He discusses how the headstones are going to light up, and demonstrates how they move and the graves open up like the dates on Advent calendars so the zombies can come out of them. He asks Joan to glue something together for him. She says, "You know, this is what it's gonna be like at college: us helping each other out." Spoken like someone who's clearly never been to college. She goes on, "We'll share a house with a group of very cool people, because of course, we'll be cool." Well, that part could well happen. But it'll be more like this: you'll share a [grotty, crowded, overpriced] house [in dire need of attention from the greedy, absentee landlord] [in a sketchy neighbourhood] with a group of very cool people [who also have no shortage of neuroses, hang-ups, personality disorders, disgusting habits, seriously weird family issues, alternately amazing and revolting taste in music/films/books, and crushes on/relationships/one-night stands with people you either can't stand or are secretly in love with yourself] because, of course, you'll be cool [as it's possible to be when you're homesick, overwhelmed, lonely, broke, hungry, and/or completely freaked out and confused]. Not that I would know anything about this. I'm just surmising. Adam's not really focused on Joan's college-daze dream: "Hey, what if the stage was blanketed in fog?" Joan thinks that's a good idea.
