COLE08: I want to tell you my secret.
Act II, Scene II
Malcolm's basement office. He is sitting at the computer when Cole08 logs into the chat room.
COLE08: I'm sitting here frozen to the spot, trembling slightly. Very pale.
Act II, Scene III
Exterior, a downtown street. Malcolm is walking along, speaking into a tape recorder.
MALCOLM: Cole08 is worse than I thought. Hallucinations, paranoia. Hospitalization may be required. (then softly, dejectedly) I may have to sell my Salon stock.
Malcolm stops in front of an antique shop; his wife's shop. Inside, he sees Anna pick up the phone. He can hear her talking.
ANNA: Hi darling. Yes, I miss you too. I can't wait till you're home.
She pauses and listens to the other person speak.
ANNA: I know. Some business trips are long. Well, I love you.
Just then, she starts to pucker her lips. It is clear she is cheating on Malcolm and is going to make kissy sounds into the phone with this jerk. Suddenly, the glass in the front door of the shop shatters! Anna cannot make her kissy sound! She rushes to the front door and looks down the street. She sees no one.
Act II, Scene IV
Malcolm's basement office. He is on the computer, chatting with Cole08.
DRMALCOLM: I don't have any questions for you.
Act II, Scene V
Malcolm's basement. He is reading the transcript of an old chat session with email@example.com. Halfway through the transcript of the session, Malcolm writes that he has to go to the bathroom and tells freakmeister he'll be right back. Then Malcolm reads on and sees what happens while he was gone:
FREAKMEISTER: I'm getting scared and it's very cold and my breathing is rapid.
Malcolm's eyes open wide in disbelief. He closes the transcript.
MALCOLM (muttering): How did I miss this? Why did I have to go to the bathroom just then?
Malcolm squirms in his seat. It is clear from the look on his face that he is seriously concerned about Cole08, and his prostate health.
Act II, Scene VI
Malcolm's basement. Another chat session with Cole08.
COLE08: You OK? Something happened, didn't it?
