triangle Script

Look at him. So engaged in his electronic television game.
More like obsessed. He needs to stop for five minutes and clean up his room.
Which one of us do you think they're talking about?
My room's clean. Gotta be you.
Honestly, I don't know what you two see in that game.
"That game" is Chimpocalypse, the most popular video game in America.
And hamburger sandwiches are the most popular food. Doesn't make them good.
Okay, Evan, time to do your homework.
Aw, man.
Oscar, you need to get cleaned up for dinner.
Aw, man.
Thank you. I know you and Evan got off to a rocky start, I really appreciate how hard you've worked to win him over.
The key is putting myself in the mind of a child.
Well, feel free to come back out any time.
All right, I want a re-match, buddy, tomorrow.
It's your money.
Hey, Charlotte! Cute top.
Thanks, Teddy.
Women love to hear about their shirts. Hey, you guys mind if I brought Andre over here for Halloween? He heard this building is great for trick-or-treating.
Of course. Although I'm not sure where he heard that, we hardly get any trick-or-treaters.
Well, we used to. Then Felix moved in, and instead of giving them candy, he gave out dental floss.
Are you saying that children are avoiding our apartment?
No. They're avoiding you.

Oh, cool chimpbot costume! I wish they made those in adult sizes.
Maybe they do.
No, I already checked. You are gonna clean up on candy tomorrow.
Not here I'm not.
I have to work tomorrow night, so Evan's going to my sister's in Long Island.
Or he could stay here and go trick-or-treating with me.
That's what I said! But then my mom just laughed for, like, a really long time.
I didn't laugh that long.
What's so funny about me taking care of Evan?
Nothing. It's just my sister hasn't seen him in a while, they'll have a great time. She's super responsible.
Ha! And I'm not?
Uh-oh, she's going to laugh again.
No, Oscar. It's just I like Evan a whole lot, and I'd like to keep him... Well, I'd like to keep him.
I can do this. We won't leave the building, I'll never take my eyes off of him and you can trust me. You trust me, right?
Okay. Let's give it a try.
We're gonna have a great time! And be very responsible.

Hey Oscar, go long!
Nice catch!
Thanks. Wish I was wearing a cup.
Teddy, what's with the suitcase?
Oh, it's Andre's. His second costume is in there.
I hit all the apartments in this costume, then I change for round two.
Very clever.
It's not my first Halloween.
If he was this focused on sports or education, he'd be unstoppable.
Can you imagine?
Well, I'm off. See ya, Dad.
You sure you don't want me to go with you?
No offense, but you slow me down. Too much chit-chat, not enough Kit Kat.
Now who's this cute little...
No time!
All right, I'm ready to go, Oscar.
I'll be home by 10:00. Be responsible, follow the rules.
I will.
I was talking to Oscar.
I will.
We're going to have so much fun.
Well, don't have too much fun.
We'll be with Felix.
Well, have some fun.
