    Scene 22.


    On stage are Mighty and Duty.


    MIGHTY: Now I must apologize to you.

    DUTY: Not a problem.

    MIGHTY: I was rude to you.

    DUTY: A little bit, when you remember about my criminal past and people who were friends with me.

    MIGHTY: I couldn’t imagine that Philip...

    DUTY: You never know who is around you.

    MIGHTY: And parrot save you reputation.

    DUTY: Animal witness is better than silent witness. But it was she.

    MIGHTY: I know, she took brooch with herself.

    DUTY: Again.

    MIGHTY: How blind I was! And you don’t switch off security system for them.

    DUTY: You never told me a code, madam.

    MIGHTY: But noise.

    DUTY: I learned how to make it quiet here. Than police called me and asked. “Duty, is it you bird?” I answered “Yes, it is”. And they switch it off. Or I called them.

    MIGHTY: You gave him opportunity to fly.

    DUTY: Daily.

    MIGHTY: Now I understand this smell in showing room.

    DUTY: He has wings to fly.

    MIGHTY: You was so heroic.

    DUTY: I was useless.

    MIGHTY: You are my shy hero.


    Voice from the cage “Mike, dear, pussy cat, is it you?”


    DUTY: I’ll bring him water.

    MIGHTY: You answered, when he call your Mike. It’s lovely.

    DUTY: When you agreed to take me as worker you could notice that my name is Mike.

    MIGHTY: Oh, sorry, Mr. Duty. I mean, Mike.

    DUTY: Not a problem. Mrs. Mighty.

    MIGHTY: I think parrot need to return back to my home. If you don’t mind, could you bring this cage at my home, now, tonight, Mike.

    DUTY: As you wish, Mrs. Mighty. It’s better than stay alone tonight at home.


    Duty takes cage. Mighty takes his other hand.


    MIGHTY: You are absolutely right, Mike and you could call me Dolores.


    Approving whistle from the cage.


    CURTAIN.
