    At Rise:    A man is doing something. An alien enters and watches him. Alien:       Why are you doing that? Man:        Needs doing. Alien:       How do you know? Man:        It’s my work. Alien:       What is work? Man:        What needs doing. Alien:       I’m asking you. Man:        I’m telling you. Alien:       What is my work? Man:        Asking questions. Alien:       That is my work! Man:        You’re good at your job.                 (Long pause) Alien:       I am a visitor to your planet.                 (Long pause) Man         Aren’t we all.
