A dark alleyway. Bob appears with a box of Extra Long Matches. He hands them to Alex. Alex examines them.
Alex: They’re extra long.
Bob nods uncertainly
Alex: How much did they cost?
Bob: I gave him a fiver. He gave me change.
Alex: How much?
Bob hands over the change
Bob: I didn’t check.
Alex: Were there shorter ones?
Bob: I thought you’d prefer long matches. They’re bigger, more effective. I didn’t think you’d mind the price.
Alex: Would shorter ones have lit the newspaper? Would shorter ones have sufficed for the job?
Bob: I should have got the shorter ones.
Alex opens the box
Alex: So, we’ve made a pile next to a bin next to a house.
Bob nods. Alex takes out a match
Alex: Are you going to light it?
