Bonnie (f), Gerry’s wife, a school teacher; Gerry (m), Bonnie’s husband, an entomologist; Sunny (f), a younger woman.
"Bonnie rushes in to tell Gerry they have just won half of a 6.4 million lottery prize. But Gerry is on the road to insanity. He’s only concerned with ridding the patio of bugs. When he does talk, it is nonsense: ‘So we’re millionaire, big deal. I bet ’cha still can’t get Jesus to appear.’ Most of his rant is anger at the government. Too many laws, too many taxes and regulations have pushed him over the edge. Bonnie, a school teacher, chimes in with equal revulsion: ‘The government don’t care about the children; they want the control, or the power to control others; regulate their lives.’ Finally, Gerry wanders off, deserting Bonnie’s plea for salvation through love, and still sputtering gibberish, seems to find peace staring into the sun with Sunny, a woman ten years younger than Bonnie."
