A: I’ve begun to enjoy the routine.
A: I like knowing what’s coming. I know when breakfast is. I know when lunch is. I know when dinner is. It’s like training.
A: It’s like we were trained for this; capture. The routine of it all. Embrace the routine.
B: We get it, you like routine.
A: There’s no surprises. Not anymore. I know nothing I say or do will be right. Everything will be punished. Like in training.
B: It’s not like-
A: It is and you know it. You didn’t make the bed right, push ups, sit ups, laps. The bed was never right.
B: Yours maybe.
A: Was yours?
A: Ever not get punished? Ever have a perfect bed?
A: See. I’m right. They know we’ll get captured. And we’re not worth saving.
B: We are- They will-
C lifts his leg to reveal tally scars
B: Why have you-
C: That’s how long we’ve been here.

C: Gonna be tallying my arse any day now.
B: I said no.
B: Shut up! You just shut up.
A: Chalky, you’ll-
A: The guards.
B: The guards? You’re the one who said-
A: Well there’s no need to encourage more.
B: Where’s the knife?
B: Oi, Calendar, where’s the knife?
A: What knife?
B: How have you been cutting yourself?
C: Rusty rail.
B: Give it.
C: It won’t kill you. I’ve tried.
C: Won’t kill them neither. Going after an armed guard with a rusty nail. Ha!
B: I’m going to try.
B: A rusty nail won’t kill me, but a bullet will.
