They Don’t Cook in ’night, Mother

Dan’s mention of Marsha Norman comes the day after this conversation:

Angela D. Isn’t there a play where they cook onstage?

Mike Yeah, last year there were plenty of plays with cooking in them: that Korean one—

Nancy V. Cookin’.

Mike—then that Theresa Rebeck one, and ’night, Mother….

Nancy V. They don’t cook in ’night, Mother.

Mike Sure, Edie Falco’s got a turkey in the oven or something.

Nancy V. I saw the show. They weren’t cooking.

Mike Weren’t they?

Nancy V. They fill a candy dish.

Mike That counts!

Keep this conversation in mind if I ever offer to make dinner.
