In this comedic monologue for male actors, David Pomerville, a man in his late forties, tries to win back his estranged wife. This humorous monologue comes from the play "Tomorrow's Wish." Actors and students are free to use this for auditions and performance pieces.
But there's a twist to this character. He's not just trying to win back his wife's heart in a sensible, logical way. In fact, a sort of love-spell has come over him, and David behaves in a way that is very unlike his usual ways. Normally, he's a low-key mechanic who is more comfortable working on cars than talking to people. In this scene, however, he burst out of his self-conscious shell and pulls every romantic trick in the book.

Debbie, I want you back. You are the light in my life and I was a fool to let that glow fade away from me. Please forgive me. No -- this isn't a joke. I've been doing a lot of thinking in the past few minutes. And I've come to realize that my life is incomplete without you.I'd like you to have this. It's a ring. Well, actually it a piece of a socket wrench, but its a symbol of my love for you. I don't want to work on cars anymore. I want to work on our marriage. And I'm not afraid to get my hands dirty. Debbie, I... I've miss you. I miss the way you take three scoops of ice cream, stick them in a bowl and put it in the microwave to get it all melty and drink it with a straw. And I miss the way that you and I used to look at each other when we'd wake up from a nap. And maybe most of all, I miss that little wrinkle in between your eyes, right above the ridge of your nose, that crinkled expression you'd give me whenever you got angry. The one you're making right now!
