Tom and Jen are in bed, late at night. The light is on so that she can read a large textbook. He is trying to sleep.
Tom: Will you be done soon? You know...I can't...
[He falls asleep.]
Jen: Sleep with the light on.
[Her voice wakes Tom up.]
Jen: Yeah, you've mentioned it before.
Jen: I just need to finish this part...
[She nods off.]
[Jen opens her eyes.]
Tom: Were you really just asleep?
Jen: No I was...memorising. I need to know this for tomorrow. Ten more minutes, OK?
[Tom starts to snore. Jen leans over and holds his nose. He wakes and she withdraws her hand, so he won't know what she's done.]
Jen: Ten minutes?
Tom: Hmm. Ten? Oh, OK, I Suppose.
[Jen goes back to reading but soon closes her eyes. Tom carefully reaches across her and switches off the light.]
[After a moment Tom starts to snore again. This wakes Jen. She puts the light back on.]
Jen: That's it. I'm finishing this chapter.
[Jen falls asleep.]
