Bonnie and Clyde Scene 16

Scene 16

Scene 16

  • Everyone's in a rental house in Missouri now—Buck's paid for a month.
  • But they're not exactly all one big happy family.
  • Bonnie's unhappy.
  • She doesn't like Blanche—who's pretty stuck up and phony. Plus, Blanche and Buck canoodle on the couch while Clyde…hugs C.W. after he loses at checkers.
  • Bonnie drags Clyde into the other room and does a mean (but totally spot-on) impression of Blanche.
  • She also says that there's always someone in the next room and asks whether Clyde ever wants to be alone with her.
  • Clyde dodges the question: he says he always feels like they're alone.
  • Then he says, "I'm hungry!" and leaves the conversation.
  • A young deliveryman brings groceries to the house and notices both Bonnie's secretive manner and the fact that the shades are drawn in the middle of the day.
  • He leaves, very curious about all of this.
