triangle Script

Man, I am so beat.
Oh, yeah.
You wanna forget racquetball and hang out?
Yeah, all right.
Hey, you are in our seats.
Sorry. I didn't know.
Hey, we were sitting there.
Okay. There is one more way to say it. Who knows it?
Was that supposed to be funny?
Nah, I was just going for colorful.
What's with this guy?
What's with you?
Uh, nothing. Nothing's with him. Enjoy your coffee.
What just happened?
I just took your hat. See, I can be funny too. My joke is that I took your hat.
That is funny. Can I have it back?
Okay. Okay. You know what? I think you're very funny. Kudos on that hat joke. Ha, ha. But come on, guys, just give him back the hat.
Why should we?
Because it's a special hat. He bought it because he was feeling down one day. So he got the hat...
Let me get this straight. You're stealing my hat?
You got a problem?
No. I just want to make sure we're on the same page.
What's the matter with you?
Some mean guys at the coffeehouse took my hat.
It was ridiculous. These guys were bullies. Actual bullies. We're grownups. This kind of stuff isn't supposed to happen anymore.
Oh... Oh, no, wait a minute. I have no one.
Let's go down there and get your hat back.
Forget it. It's probably stripped and sold for parts by now.
Hey, isn't that the guy who used to wear your hat?
And look where they're sitting.
You're joking, right? You guys just walked through the door.
Maybe we didn't make this clear enough. This couch belongs to us.
I'll tell you what, you call the couch... And then we'll call the couch. And we'll see who it comes to.
You know what I keep wondering? Why you two are still sitting here.
All right, that's it. I have had enough of this, all right? Gunther. These guys are trying to take our seat.
Fellas, these guys were here first.
Oh sorry. Didn't realize.
There you go.
Thank you, Gunther.
We didn't want to have to go and do that.
He told on us? You told on us?
Well, pal, you didn't give me much of a choice.
All right. Let's take this outside.
Let's take this outside? Who talks like that?
You had to ask!
Okay, okay, look. See... we're not gonna fight you guys. Well then, here's the deal. You won't have to, so long as you never ever show your faces here again.
