EXT: A STREET CORNER
RAY, a man in his mid-fifties, is standing near an intersection
(To various passersby)
Excuse me, miss, do you have any spare change? Anything at all, even the smallest penny. Okay, well, you have a good day, ma'am, God bless you, okay?
Any spare change, mister? I'm trying to get enough to take the bus downtown to—you have a good day, sir! God bless you!
Excuse me, miss, do you have any…well, thank you, may the Lord bless and keep you for your kindness. I'm trying to get enough to take the bus downtown to stay at the shelter. I have $1.62 right now and it's $2.50 for the bus one way you know, so I only need 88 cents, ma'am, yes, if you've got it. Oh, yes, no, a dollar is great ma'am, because I had $1.62 and the bus is $2.50 and so now I have an extra 12 cents to go toward a coffee. It sure does get cold here, but that's never going to change, now is it? And I am blessed to have what I do, yes ma'am, I am.
Well, you have yourself a wonderful day, ma'am. God bless you for your kindness and you have a good day.
