A hospital waiting room.


DEBRA: Oh for heaven’s sake, excuse me for being from a different time.  I am a broad-minded person and I’m trying to stay abreast, I truly am, but something has gone off the rails these days.  It’s troubling.  I’ll tell you honestly, something is truly messed up about your whole generation.  Your bodies covered in tattoos and studs and staples.  On your cell phones day and night.  All these multiple genders and sex changes.
