He’ll stand on guard for free

TONY
“I got myself a job for Sunday.”

PHILIP
“Great! What is it?”

TONY
“Well, it’s two hours looking after the corner store. The owner can’t be there and folks keep swiping her flowers plants. I told her it was no problem since I was going to be there anyway. She didn’t even have to pay me since it’s the neighbourhood, if you know what I mean. But I know she’ll give me something anyway.”

Old brinks truck - July 15 2009

TONY
“Man, I’d love to win that $32 million prize they’ve got on 6/49 tonight. I can tell you one thing for sure … if I had a ticket for it and I won it, you can bet I wouldn’t be coming into work tomorrow. Neither would you either, Phil, if you know what I mean.”

PHILIP
“When are you going to Vancouver?”

TONY
“Well I’ve got to make some money first. The bus is pretty expensive, but I think it’s less expensive than the plane.

“Anyway, my nephew says he can get some work for me so I can make some extra money for the trip.”

PHILIP
“So when are you going?”

TONY
“Depends. I’ve got to get the money first. But I can tell you I need a holiday — haven’t had one in ten years. Plus I’ve never seen the ocean.”

PHILIP
“Never in your whole life?”

TONY
“Nope. Never have; always wanted to. This is my chance; I’ve gotta do it.”

TONY
“I think it’s time for a holiday for me.”

PHILIP
“I’ve never heard you say that before … where are you going?”

TONY
“I’m gonna go out to Vancouver. I’ve got a friend and he’s going out there for a job with a bus line. He figures I could get some work there with him too. Anyway, I haven’t had a holiday in a while.”

TONY
“Did you know that I was working for the cops tonight?”

PHILIP
“What’s up?”

TONY
“There’s a guy around who’s snatching purses. He grabbed an older lady’s purse and put her in the hospital. You know, she was 72 years old and he put her in St. Joe’s.

“They thought they had him cornered in the lane behind but he must’ve slipped away. He was wearing a green jacket and probably aged around 17.”

PHILIP
“So what are you doing for the cops?”

TONY
“They want me to tell everyone who comes down the street that there’s a purse-snatcher around. So that’s what I’m doing. One sec, Phil

“Excuse me, Miss …”
