Man with wild beard enters shop.
Man with wild beard: There was a book in the window yesterday on Transylvanian Ephemera. Has it sold?
Emily: If it’s not in the window now, I’m afraid it probably has.
Man with wild beard: (Frantically) It’s not in the window?
Emily: I thought you couldn’t see it in the window.
Man with wild beard: I haven’t looked.
Exit Emily.
Enter Emily
Emily: It’s still in the window.
Man with wild beard: Ah, good.
