CEILING: What’s going on?
MIRROR: Hey! Anybody around here? Can’t see a thing!
CEILING: Well maybe there is no thing here.

CEILING: What should we do?
O. : Wait… what else is there to do?... like when you’re stuck in a tin can.
FLOOR: Don’t be so dramatic…
SANTO: Well, we could call someone – but who?
FLOOR: This situation is making me nervous…
MIRROR: Come on! It’s like a blind date: claustrophobia, cosmic pessimism, freezing gale and the inner torment of post-modernist blah blah blah… Let’s look at the bright side!
