The Second Speaker Character Analysis

An unidentified person of unspecified gender in “The Marlboro Man,” who speaks with her friend, the first speaker, about the Marlboro Man. The second speaker tells her friend about how she saw a special on 60 Minutes about the Marlboro Man, who she claims died of AIDS. Like the first speaker, it is apparent that this person is primarily interested in talking, regardless of the subject, though her interest in the Marlboro Man is a bit more specific, since she reveals that she used to dream that he’d be “the father of [her] children.”
