Opening Scene: Two women are sitting around a table in a restaurant setting. They invited Mable, the unsaved woman along in an effort to help her with her life. Mable has her own agenda planned. Mrs. Jenkins and Ms. Hansen are seated in a restaurant waiting for Mable. They have water on the table. Mable staggers in afterwards. Unknowingly to the two ladies, Mable has a bottle of whiskey under her coat.
Mrs. Hansen to Mrs. Jenkins: Thank you for coming with me today.
Mrs Jenkins: Well anything for a good cause - I guess. I think everybody should know Jesus, even those heathens like Mable. (sarcastic, stuck up tone) Where is she any way?
Ms. Hansen: She should be here soon and please donít call her a heathen. Oh there she is. (Mable enters in, kind of wobbly)
Ms. Jenkins to Ms. Hansen: My goodness, what is wrong with her. She had better not be drunk (irritated tone)
Mable: (walks over towards the two ladies, turns her head to the side to take a little swig from her hidden stach, Pulls chair back and takes a seat, she almost falls, the two ladies look kinda puzzled) ďHey sister JenkinsĒ, have you been praying for me lately?
Sister Jenkins: (Hesitates while looking at Ms. Hansen): Why of course I have. I pray for you everyday. (same sarcastic, stuck up tone)
Mable: (Eyes get real big. She stands up, kinda staggering a little bit with a wine glass in her hand, she looks at sister Jenkins) You know you ought to stop lying. (Voice shaking)
Sister Jenkins: (Angrily, she stands up as well) How dare you call me a liar, especially about something as precious as prayer. Why would I lie about praying? I have never heard of such foolishness. (Ms. Hansen interrupts at this point).
Mrs. Hansen: You two need to both sit down. You are making spectacles out of yourself.
(restaurant diners look around at them), need a few people sitting at other tables in the vicinity.
Mable: (voice still staggering) Whatís a spectacle? (She begins to laugh hysterically). (The two women look at each other),
Sister Jenkins: (now talking to Mrs. Hansen): I donít know about you, but I have had enough. I am leaving.
Mrs. Hansen: We canít leave her like this. She is drunk.
Sister Jenkins: (non-caring tone) Ė I didnít give her the bottle. So much for trying to help someone who doesnít want to be helped. She is not my problem. (She leaves)
Mrs. Hansen: (by now Mable the unsaved woman has fallen back in the chair quite out of it) Ė (Mrs. Hansen proceeds to lift Mable out of the chair). I am going to take you home before you get into real trouble.
Mable - (still out of it). Thanks sister. Now you are a real friend. (She begins to cry as they head off the stage) Nobody loves me. Not one single person.
Mrs. Hansen: (answers) Thatís not true. Jesus Christ loves you very much.
