DARREN： So， you have three days off. What are you going to do？
SCOTT： I don't know. Probably I'm just going to hang around here and relax. DARREN： Watch MTV， huh？
SCOTT： Not just MTV. I will probably rent some movies with Sylvia. We'll order some pizzas. Just relax. DARREN： That's pathetic. SCOTT： Huh？ What do you mean "pathetic"？ What's wrong with it？
DARREN： Spending three days like that is a kind of vegetable life. SCOTT： Hey， listen. I work hard. If I want to relax on a long weekend， that's my business. DARREN： Of course it's your business. But you should have better recreation than TV. SCOTT： Yeah？ Like what？
DARREN： You should get out of the house. Go out into nature. Or you should learn to play an instrument or something. Or learn to draw. But just sitting here and watching TV——that's idiotic. You're wasting your life. When you are older， you will have no memories. Your whole life will be all TV. SCOTT： And you， Mr. Righteous， what do you do on the weekends？
DARREN： Well， this weekend Betty and I are going to a wine tasting on Saturday. And you know I'm in an archery club. Probably I'll do some practice on Sunday. And maybe I'll do some windsurfing with my friend Lou on Sunday or Monday. But the weather might not be good， so I don't know. SCOTT： And you think all that is better than watching TV？
DARREN： Of course. For one thing， it requires some movement. For another， I do those things with my wife or my friends. There is some activity together. That's what recreation should be. Not just sitting in front of a screen. Sometimes I think TV is a kind of parasite. It attaches to people's brains， and sucks away their lives. SCOTT： I don't know. I don't watch much TV during the week. So I think it's all right on the weekend. DARREN： But three days， Scott. You have three days here. You should have some better plans. SCOTT： I'll think about it.
