Susan
is this station one of your favorites?

Mary
well, it has a couple of attractions

the mosaic signs from the late-60s have been very well-maintained

and two lines stop here, so people think Iím waiting for the other one

Susan
how long do you do this?

Mary
how long is a mood?

itís never quite the same

tonight I knew right where I was going

other times I just pick a direction and see whatís out there

Susan
subway pleasure trips

Bill Rice and Jim Neu. This was Bill Rice's last play.

Mary
traditional entertainment was ruining my life

itís wonderful what they can do now, but excruciating

the graphic breakthroughs were beyond anything I ever thought Iíd have to see

I was accumulating memories I didnít deserve

I needed to rethink my leisure options

I always enjoyed travel

and I didnít feel like waiting for my vacation
