triangle Script

As I walked up to that door, a million thoughts raced through my mind. Unfortunately, one particular thought did not.

I've got five dogs.


Hi. I was just ... ah ...

Come on up.

So, Ted, what brings you back to Brooklyn at 1:00 in the morning in a suit?

I was just hoping to get those olives that you said I could have.

Would you like those olives with some gin and vermouth?

Are you trying to get me drunk?

For starters.

Thank you.

I think I like your Olive Theory.

I think I like your new French horn.

I think I like your nose.

I think I'm in love with you.

You love me?

Oh, God. I can't believe I said that. Why did I say that? Who says that? I should just go.

Hold on. Wait a minute. I promised you these.



Thanks. I love you. What is wrong with me?

So, when you tell this story to your friends, could you avoid the word 'psycho'? I'd prefer 'eccentric.'

Goodnight, psycho.

Great. How do I get to the F train?

Oh. Two blocks, that way and take a right.

Thanks. You know what? I'm done being single. I'm not good at it. Look, obviously, you can't tell a woman you just met you love her, but it sucks that you can't. I'll tell you something, though. If a woman, not you, just some hypothetical woman, were to bear with me through all this, I think I'd make a damn good husband because that's the stuff I'd be good at. Stuff like making her laugh and being a good father and walking her five hypothetical dogs. Being a good kisser.

Good night, Ted.
