From the play:
Addie: It’s really coming down still. It’s going to cover everything. Swallow all the familiar landmarks like a. A giant white python. Leaving only the vague outlines of what used to be underneath.
Craig: . . .
Addie: She tells good stories. I wouldn’t mind going to Thailand.
Craig: And losing your memory?
Addie shrugs her shoulders.
Craig: You want to forget me?
Addie: . . .
Craig: Amnesia in Thailand. What a load.
Addie: It’s no more improbable than amnesia in Ohio.
Craig: What are you
Addie: Oh just a little story I know. About a guy who doesn’t ever talk about his past. Wandering like a. A ghost. Through his double-mortgaged split-level ranch home coming down with amnesia anytime his mousy little boring wife asks him about his family or his life before her.
