Bear

A PASSENGER and a DRIVER are sitting in a car.
PASSENGER: Hey, you know how shotgun works, right?
DRIVER: Eh?
PASSENGER: You know, the unwritten social rules. Like, if you were giving a lift to a group of people, who gets the front seat.
DRIVER: I guess.
PASSENGER: Well, what would you do if one of them was a bear?
Pause.
DRIVER: What?
PASSENGER: You know, like... a bear.
DRIVER: Well, I guess he'd get the front seat. Nobody would argue with a bear.
PASSENGER: Right... what if he slept with your girlfriend?
DRIVER: ... Your girlfriend slept with a bear?
PASSENGER: (Unconvincingly) No, no, hypothetically.
DRIVER: Well... I guess not if you've got much better friends.
PASSENGER: Right, right.
Pause.
PASSENGER: What if you slept with the bear?
Lights down.
