Scene 102-04. Stephan comes out to Adam

ADAM tells STEPHAN that TERRENCE convinced him to become a priest – God’s man in the world. Adam asks about Stephan’s engagement to ASHLEY, and Stephan informs him that he has decided he doesn’t want to get married – at least not to a woman. Grande pause. Adam, dismayed asks Stephan if he has time to tell him… to talk… to tell him about it… Stephan says, sure – if you have time to listen. Adam pours the tea and tells Stephan that he’s all ears.

Working Script

PANEL: STEPHAN lounges on the couch in front of the window, ADAM in the foreground.

STEPHAN: SO… WHAT DID HE SAY?

PANEL: CLOSE on ADAM’s FACE.

ADAM: WELL, HE SUGGESTED THAT I BECOME A PRIEST.

STEPHAN: OH.

PANEL: STEPHAN LOOKS UP AT ADAM AS ADAM HANDS STEPHAN A MUG OF TEA. THEIR HANDS MIGHT TOUCH, BUT THERE IS DEFINITELY A TENDER LOOK.

STEPHAN: AND ARE YOU HAPPY? I MEAN– THAT YOU BECAME A PRIEST?

PANEL: ADAM THINKS A MOMENT.

ADAM: YES. SURE, I’m HAPPY.

ADAM: WHY DO YOU ASK?

STEPHAN: YOU PRETTY MUCH LIVE LIKE A MONK NOW.

STEPHAN: YOUR STUDY REMINDS ME OF A MONASTERY. YOU LIVE ALONE…

ADAM: I GUESS I AM A MONK, IN A WAY…

ADAM: BUT HOW ABOUT YOU?

STEPHAN: ME?

ADAM: THIS ISN’T A CLEVER WAY…

PANEL:

ADAM: OF GETTING OUT OF YOUR ENGAGEMENT TO ASHLEY? IS IT?

PANEL: STEPHAN GRINS, FOR A MOVEMENT, THEN SWALLOWS.

STEPHAN: I CAN’T MARRY ASHLEY.

ADAM: IS… IS… THERE SOMETHING WRONG? DID YOU HAVE  A FIGHT?

PANEL: STEPHAN SMILES.

STEPHAN: NO. NOTHING’S WRONG.

STEPHAN: I JUST REALIZED I WAS GAY. THAT’S ALL.

STEPHAN: I JUST REALIZED FOR SURE WHEN I MET THIS GUY WHO WAS STAYING AT A MONASTERY…
