A dark room, spot on a table. Mr. Lauber sits at the table.
You: What do you mean, Mr. Lauber?
You: What is nothing?
Lauber: Nothing is the absence of everything.
You: And what is everything?
Lauber: Everything is the absence of nothing.
You: So we don't have to do anything in the holidays?
Lauber: Oh but you do.
You: What? Tell me what we have to do!
You: What is something?
Lauber: Something is the abs...
You: Shut up and speak in plain terms!
Lauber: You don't make sense. I can't shut up and speak at the same time.
You: Arghhhhhhh. Just tell me what we have to do. PLEASE!
Lauber: Finish Perks. Fill in the character sheets. Think about the view on love from the perspective of Charlie, Sam and Patrick. Be nice.
You: That's all?
Lauber: No, it's not. It's only something.
Lauber: I like you, too. Check the homepage at the end of the holidays for your new assignments.
