The Peyton Transcript: Part 1

Setting: Peyton returns home to Florida after the press conference announcing his release from the Colts.

Peyton (enters left): Hi honey, man I’m bushed.

Ashley: Oh sweetie, I watched the press conference, you did so well. (embraces, kisses Peyton) Was it tough?

Peyton: Dad gave me the talking points ahead of time, so it was the usual. Choking up over the equipment guys was a bit of a stretch, but I think I nailed it.

Ashley: You did! You SO did!

Ashley: So what do we do now?

Peyton: I don’t know! First time in almost twenty years that we get to make a choice in our lives! Well, with Dad’s input, of course.

Ashley: Of course! Wait, you mean we get to pick where we live?!!

Peyton: Yeah, can you believe our luck? Hahahaha, I said “Luck.” (Ashley laughs)

Peyton: I know it’s been hard for you in Indianapolis all these years, with me always working or off shooting commercials. So you get first pick, darling -- where would you like to live now? Remember, we can always come back here to Miami in the off season.

Ashley: Oh my. Well, I love Indy, but that’s out right?

Peyton: Right.

Ashley: OK, it would be great to be near family, especially now with the kids. Let’s go to New Orleans.

Peyton: Mmmmm, can’t do that, Dad and I have a non-compete, remember? That’s why I had to go to Tennessee?

Ashley: Oh right. Well, I love to ski and board, and the twins will be old enough to get on the baby slopes in a few years. That’d be a great activity! How about a place near some ski resorts?

Peyton: Great, we’ll put Denver first on the list of places to check out!

Ashley: Don’t they have that Tim Tebow on their roster? Do you you think I, well, um, WE would get to meet him?

Peyton: No, he’ll be gone, I think… so maybe we need more options, what’s your next choice?

Ashley: Hmmm. Florida is lovely, so nice and warm, but the humidity sometimes… well, your back acne can flare up pretty bad.

Peyton: I know! Well, Phoenix has a dry heat, let’s put Arizona on the list!

Ashley: Perfect! And those desert sunsets are so beautiful!

Ashley: Pey-baby, it occurs to me, if we stay here in Miami, the Dolphins equipment managers could deal with the pimple issue, couldn't they? (Peyton chokes up a little, nods slightly). If we lived in South Beach year round, darling, do you think, maybe, just maybe, we might be able to afford a house of our own instead of just this condo?

Peyton: I don’t see why not! I’ll check with Dad. (They embrace)
