triangle Script 대본 Roteiro Texto

Dwight: Dunder Mifflin, Dwight Schrute. Please hold.

Dwight: Schrute Farms. (in German) Guttentag Good morning. How can I help you?

Dwight: Yes, we have availability on those nights. How many in your party?

Dwight: Oh, no, I'm sorry. No king beds. No queen either.

Dwight: Well we make our own mattresses that don't conform to the traditional sizes. Closest would be twin.

Dwight: Thank you so much for calling.

Dwight: Call back again. (in German) Auf Wiedersehen Goodbye.

Jim: Hey Dwight.

Dwight: None of your business, Jim.

Jim: You running a bed and breakfast?

Dwight: It's not a B&B.

Dwight: Agro-tourism is a lot more than a bed and breakfast. It consists of tourists coming to a farm, showing them around, giving them a bed, giving them breakfast.

Jim: Does the Department of Health know about this?

Dwight: I am not telling you anything. Permits are pending.

Dwight: Dwight Schrute, Dunder Mifflin.

Pam: Hello, I'm looking for a room.

Dwight: Okay, this is a misuse of company phones.

Pam: It says here you cater to the elderly.

Dwight: Where did you read that?

Pam: Trip Advisor.

Dwight: Trip Advisor is the lifeblood of the agro-tourism industry. A couple of bad reviews there, you may as well close up shop. That's what took down the Stalk Inn, one of the cutest little asparagus farms you'll ever see.

Dwight: How many in your party?

Pam: Two.

Dwight: We offer our tours of the fields and of the barn. Perhaps you'd be interested in Mose's table-making demonstration.
