triangle Script

Kelly: “There we go.”

Michael: (laughs) “Nice dress Ryan.”

Kelly: “It’s not a dress – it’s a Kurta.”

Michael: “Okay.”

Michael: “Tonight one of our most ethnic co-workers Kelly has invited us all to a Diwali celebration put on by her community. What is Diwali you may ask. Well to have Kelly explain it: it's ‘ahdab….blah blah blah…It’s so super..fun…and it’s gonna be great.’ A lot of gods with unpronounceable names – twenty minutes later you find out that it's essentially a Hindu Halloween.

Kelly: “You look so handsome”

Pam: “You really do. I love the material.”

Michael: “How come you didn’t get me one?”

Kelly: “Uhh…”
