SCENE 2 Oscar stops Luis as he passes by and offers him a glass of water to beat the heat, no jokes or tricks. Luis skeptically takes a sip and is pleased it's normal. Fluffy has another way to keep cool - swimming in the pool. After her swan dive, Oscar thinks of another solution to stay cool - taking a cool shower. Luis agrees and Fluffy squirts him all over with water. Luis actually finds it refreshing and thanks them. "Boy, the heat sure does strange things to people."
