Two People: a play in one act

Me: Would you like more coffee?

She: No thank you, I'm satisfied with what I have.

Me: Then I'll be unsatisfied with what I don't have.

It's a short play, :09 seconds in a normal reading, though several actors who've performed it draw upon the nuances to give it a more leisurely pace. One reader suggested that the time-gap between the female's answer to the male's question and the male's response be elongated to the degree that more dramatic tension might be wrung out of the exchange.
