INT. NIGHT. VAN SCHALKWYK’S LOUNGE. PRESENT.
SARAH:So back to the game, people! Now, you have to swear that you will do whatever is asked of you as a consequence.
FRANS:I’m ready for anything. But maybe some more brandy first ... to get into the SPIRIT of the game, hey?
LEONARD:I think I’ll just watch.
SARAH:No watchers allowed.
FRANS:I’ve heard Leonard likes to watch, isn’t that right boet?
MARTINUS:Come on Leonard. It’ll be fun.
LEONARD:Okay. But I still think it’s stupid.
KOBUS:I like games.
CADDIE:(To Sarah)I’m not sure I trust you tonight.
SARAH:What do they say: ‘Trust no one but yourself.’
CADDIE:(Jokingly).And even then, think twice!
MARTINUS:So how do we start?
SARAH:Who wants to go first?
MARTINUS:You start. Then we can see how the game’s played.
SARAH:An excellent idea.
FRANS:Oh hel, nou gaan ons kak!
SARAH:Okay then. Let me see. Oh I love this delicious sense of power! Right then. Let’s start with ... I don’t know ... Kobus!
CADDIE:Is that fair, Sarah?
SARAH:Hey, all’s fair in love and war, honey.
KOBUS:(Very keen)Okay, what do I have to do?
SARAH:Just answer the question - as truthfully as possible. Now, what shall I ask dear old Kobus ...?
KOBUS:Ask me anything!
SARAH:(Thinks for a moment)I know. Would you like to kiss my friend Caddie over here?
CADDIE:(Shocked, but quite amused).Sarah!
SARAH:No-one’s allowed to play the Pope, please. Just answer the question, Kobus. Would you like to kiss Caddie?
FRANS:(Excited at the prospect)Hell, who wouldn’t?
KOBUS:(Very embarrassed)I don’t know.
SARAH:You have to answer.
SARAH:(Pouncing on his answer)What was that?
KOBUS:(Defensively now)No. Not really.
SARAH:And is that your final answer?Kobus refuses to say anymore.
FRANS:Come on Kobusie. You can tell us.
LEONARD:Ja, Kobus. Now we learn the truth, hey?
SARAH:Now do we believe Kobus’ answer?
SARAH, LEONARD AN FRANS TOGETHER: NO!!!
MARTINUS:Hell, man, give the poor chap a break.
SARAH:This is just the way the game works, Martinus. Get used to it. Now you have to pay the consequence for not telling the truth, Kobus. Ummm. What shall I make you do? And remember, you HAVE to do it.
CADDIE:Come on Sarah. I agree with Martinus. Cut Kobus some slack.
SARAH:(Relentless and mocking Caddie’s attitude)‘Oooh. I agree with Martinus.’ Well, sorry for you. Now then, let’s see. Well because you lied, Kobus, you have to ... have to ... I know: kiss Caddie!Frans and Leonard laugh delightedly.
KOBUS:No man. I can’t do that.
SARAH:Oh but you have to, my friend. Come on.(Subtly wicked)You know you want to.
