triangle Script



Do you know anything about digital cameras?
Roy might.
I do, as it happens. I'm an amateur photographer, actually.
I've just got this new one, but it's really complicated.
Oh. That's fixed.
What was wrong with it?
It wasn't turned on.
Oh I don't know why I got rid of my old one, it was perfectly fine.
Yeah, well, these all look good. What's going on with this fella? Look at him! He's pulling a mad face, he looks completely mental!
That's Dave, my brother. He's got a very serious condition.
When I said mental there, I meant mental in the sense of intelligent. You know, like he'she's a big reader.
He has boss-eyedness.
Boss-eyedness?
He's permanently boss-eyed.
That must be a big pain in the arse.
It is, and the terrible thing is, people think there's actually something funny about this.
No! Who could think there's something funny about this?
It's a proper condition and he really suffers, he really...
Oh, hey.
I'd just give anything if Dave could have a normal life.
Oh, hey, now.
Kimberly, are you OK?
It's just Dave.
Oh, poor Dave.
Hey, I've got a great idea. Why don't we all do something to raise money for people like Dave?
Yeah, we must be able to think of something, like a fun run!
That's a good idea.
Or a nude calendar.
That's maybe even a better idea than the fun run idea!
We could call it "The Girls of the Seventh Floor".
Yes! Yes! It's a very strong theme!
Roy could be the photographer.
I could do the photographs because I said I was an amateur photographer!
Come on, let's do a brainstorm.
I'd like to be November if that's OK.
Can I be April?
Yes!
And on October, we've got to have a Halloween theme
