Scene 8

Scene 8

  • Frank takes Karl to his "secret place," a quiet spot by a lake.
  • Frank and Karl talk about being poor and having dead parents. Real uplifting lunchtime talk.
  • Frank says that his momma's boyfriend, Doyle, is mean, stingy, and probably has other girlfriends.
  • Frank likes Vaughan better but says that Vaughan is funny. "Not funny ha-ha, funny queer."
  • If only Vaughan liked to go out with women, he could be Momma's boyfriend, which Frank thinks would be an upgrade.
  • Frank confesses that his dad died from suicide. He left a letter saying he felt ashamed that he couldn't provide for the family financially.
  • Like we said: what an uplifting lunchtime chat.
