Fav Passage - They shoot a lot of guys

The receptionist answered without reciting the principals list. She and I are on a first name basis. She asked me immediately if I was being taken downtown. I told her I wasn’t being arrested this time.
“You okay? In the hospital?”
“Nope.”
“Who did you shoot?” she asked.
“No one.”
“You calling for Roger then? Who’d he shoot?”
“No one.”
She sighed. “Then how many did Michael shoot?”

  1. It doesn't sound as if the receptionist's experiences are totally positive...

  3. Nice dialogue. I'm not sure if I'm supposed to, but I found humor in the last line...
