triangle Script

Don't you look handsome.
I have to. I've got this super-hot girlfriend. She's smart, successful, can't keep her hands off me.
Can't keep her hands off me.
So, what's this restaurant you're taking me to?
Oh, it's very fancy. No free refills, a lot of things are "market price." Please don't order those things.
Hey, if you're getting lucky, I'm getting lobster.
Uh, the new sitter should be here soon.
Oh, you got a new sitter?
You mean since you dated and dumped my last one? Yes. This one's a 60-year-old former Olympic shot-putter
with unfortunate facial hair.
Big boobs?
Mommy. I don't feel good.
Oh, sweetheart. Come here.
Um, Evan, this is Oscar, Mommy's new friend.
Hi. Nice to meet you, big guy. Little man. Little buddy. Honey child. Jump in here anytime.
Where does it hurt?
My tummy.
Do you have to go out, Mommy?
I'm sorry, but would you mind if we stayed in and watched a movie? I can cancel Olga.
Boy, you will do anything to keep me away from that hairy shot-putter.
I'll be right back.
So, your tummy hurts, huh?
That's no fun, right?
Yep. Sucks to be sick.
I'm not sick.
What do you ... what?
Here you go, sweetie.
Thank you, Mommy.
Poor guy.

Wow. That dress is incredible.
Thanks. Felix sent me a list of acceptable attire. Your roommate is a little bit I want to say "persnickety,"
but I don't think that's anal enough.
Mommy, Olga has a question for you.
Oh. I'll be right back.
Evan, say hi to Oscar.
Hi, Oscar.
Hi, Evan!
Remember that movie we saw the other night? I thought maybe you'd like your own Maldork the Dragon!
It's Maldrak, not Maldork. Dork.
Did you just double-dork me?
What if I did, dork?
Look, obviously we got off on the wrong foot here. I was hoping we'd find a way to be friends.
Yeah, never gonna happen.
Hey, Oscar.
Thanks for the dragon! This is awesome!
Oh, what a sweet gift.
Hey, can you check the latch on this?
Is it on?
Oh, it's on.
