Typical Conversation dispenses with a script to show how futile and predictable I-know-you're-doing-drugs conversations can be. When a daughter returns home, she finds her mother waiting for her in the foyer. "Awkward confrontational accusation," the mother bellows, holding up a drug-stocked plastic bag. "Automatic denial," shrieks the daughter. They trade verbal blows: mother - "Skeptical response"; daughter - "Phony excuse you'll see right through"; mother - "Angry, irrational statement I'll regret later"; daughter - "Fake emotional whimper." "Desperate, confused empty threat," the mother screams finally, as her daughter storms away.
