triangle Script



Hi Claire.
Hey.
Hey.
Oh, okay. Hi, ummmm. This is my husband, Phil.
Hi.
And that's my son, Luke, right there. This is...
Desiree.
Desiree, right. Sorry.
Desiree just moved in down the block.
Fun. Where?
314
Oh, the two-bedroom cottage with the indoor/outdoor family room.
Very good. How did you...
Bet you're loving that steam shower.
Phil, that's creepy.
Oh, sorry. I'm a real estate mogul. What?! No, I am a real-estate agent. Um, we caravanned that house. Great, uh, deck.
Thanks. I'm just there till my divorce is final.
Now, who is coconuts enough to divorce you?
We got to go, but we'll see you around.
Well, we'll have to have you over sometime.
I'd love it.
All right.
Bye.
Bye.
She's awesome.
No, we are never having her over. I heard she already slept with two dads from the school.
What?
Mm-hmm.
That's horrible.

Oh, hey. Hey!
Hi!
Hi.
Hi, uh, this is really embarrassing, but I locked myself out of my house.
Oh, tsh! I do it all the time. Don't be embarrassed.
I was hoping you could help me. There's a window open, but I can't reach it. Would you mind?
Yeah, sure. Great. Yeah. Of course. You know what they say... Every time god closes a door, he opens a window. Or I guess in this case, every time he locks you out. Okay, what do we got here?

I mean, "Am I attracted to her?" Yes. "Would I ever act on it?" No. No way. Not while my wife is still alive.

Are you sure I can't get you something to drink?
Yeah, no, I'm fine, really.
If I knew a man was going tgo climb into my bedroom window, I would have cleaned up a bit.
Are you kidding me? It smelled great in there, like lotions and oils for dry skin and you know calloused hands.
Yeah. It's a candle.
Uh-oh.
What's wrong?
The bike's gone.
Oh, no. Can I help you find it?
That's all right. Thank you.
Ok. Thabk you.

The good news is - Luke has his bike. More good news - I taught some random kid a valuable lesson by stealing his bike. Best news - Claire knows nothing. So, I figure I'll just dump the new bike where I stole the first bike. That way, random kid gets his back, and this new bike doesn't raise a lot of embarrassing questions like, "Why I had it?" or "Who boosted who through a bedroom window?" So everybody's happy.

I mean I don't understand. Why are you trying to sneak around and hide things from me? I actually think it's pretty funny.
You do?
I do, yes. I mean, you steal a bike from some poor kid and then the bike gets stolen from you - That's hilarious.
Classic me, right?
Yeah! So, where were you when it got stolen?
Oh, I was getting some gas.
Uh-huh.
Yeah.
You don't stand near the car when you get gas?
Yep, but, uh, I went inside to get a soda because I was thirsty. And if I had a soda, I wouldn't be thirsty anymore, So I bought one. And then I drank it all right there, which is why I don't have the can.
Well honey, please let's try to remember that I'm your wife, not your mom, so in the future, you don't need to hide things from me, okay?
Okay.
Okay.
Ohh! Oh, yeah! You get back here, you!
What are you doing, Phil?
I just love you so darn much!
I know. I love you too, but that hurts.
Let's get you inside. It is a hot one.
Hi! I know. That's hurting a lot.
This is a hot one.
Hello! Hi, there!
Hi, again.
I, uh, found your bike.
Oh, good! At the gas station?
No, at my house. One of my neighbors saw it and put it in my garage When you were in my bedroom, so
Classic me?
