a one scene script
"Julia Seizure Act 1 Scene 2.2" by Bill Schott

For some reason I'm pressing on to complete this scene based on The Tragedy of Julias CaesarBill has decided to take the role of Cassius. Since he still needs to be the director, he has asked the Custodian to play the part of Bill. Jiffy will be the star of the play, Brutus.  Also, since many don't know this play, most of the dialogue will be in American English with an insertion of the original text which will be obvious.

Jiffy as Brutus (Jootus)
BILL as Cassius (Bassius)
Custodian as Bill (Bilcus)

BASSIUS: Aren't you going to watch the hullabaloo, Jootus?

Jootus: I ain't into that stuff. I'm more a brain than a jock like Aunt Toni.

Bilcus: Are you saying -- Aunt Tony?

Jootus:  Yeah, but I'm sayin' it with an 'I'. Y'know -- 'cause she's a girl.

Bilcus:  How do you SAY it with an 'I'? Wait. That's not the point. Antony is a man.

Jootus:  So this chick (using air quotes) IDENTIFIES as a man?

BASSIUS: I feel like I should be having this conversation with Jiffy.

Bilcus:  You should stay in character. I'm the director and I will correct the actors.

Jootus: So you're correctin' me, Hazel?

Bilcus: Who's Hazel?

BASSIUS: It's a reference to a sixties television show about a housemaid.

Bilcus: So --you're calling me a maid? I am a custodial engineer and vice president of the Janitorial Fellowship of the Contiguous States of America.

BASSIUS:  Let me just step in here and say that we all appreciate you, ah, Mister --

Bilcus: Costello. Abe Costello.

Jootus: Abe must be short for Abbott Ann; right, Hazel?

Bilcus: It's actually Andy.

Jootus: Is that Andy with an 'I', Hazel?

Bilcus: I don't have to put up with this.

BASSIUS: You certainly do not, Mister Costello. Bill, however, would. So, let's stay in character and get through these few short lines between Cassius and Brutus.

Jootus: Okay, okay. Ah, let me get this goin'. Okay.  Hey, Brutus. You ain't been lovin' on me lately like you ought to. WHAT the HELL !

BASSIUS: Okay, that was my line, Jiffy. I'm Cassius, you're Brutus.

Jootus: Yeah, but what's up with this lovey dovey crap between these two GUYS.

Bilcus: It's not what you think.

BASSIUS: They're good friends, Jiffy.

Jootus: Yeah, I'll bet. Greeks, right?

Bilcus: Can we just go on?

Jootus: Sure. Cashus, Sorry I've been ghostin' you. I'm worried about the future.

BASSIUS: Right. So, Brutus, can you see your face? Here's the answer; you cannot. Let me be your mirror. Everyone thinks you are exceptional, except Caesar.

Jootus: What are you tryin' to do, Cashus; get me all jealous about Caesar?

Bilcus: (
Holding his arms out as if playing a long horn)  Toot tootoo tooooo! Yay!

Jootus:  What now?

BASSIUS:  They are likely making Caesar the king.

Jootus: Not on my watch, dude.

BASSIUS: Certainly. Who is Caesar that places him above you or me? We might want to keep that from happening.

Men at some time are masters of their fates:
The fault, dear Brutus, is not in our stars,
But in ourselves, that we are underlings.

Jootus: Right. Hey, looks like the party's over. Snatch Casca up and get him over her so's we can find out what's up.

To be continued...
