triangle Script 대본 Roteiro Texto

Penny, are you experiencing some sort of difficulty?

Yes. I can't get my stupid door open.

You appear to have put your car key in the door lock. Are you aware of that?


All right, then.

Damn it, Damn it, damn it, damn it, damn it!

Would it be possible for you to do this a little more quietly? Point of inquiry - why did you put your car key in the door lock?

Why? I'll tell you why. Because today I had an audition. It took me two hours to get there. I waited an hour for my turn. And before

I could even start, they told me I looked too Midwest for the part. Too Midwest! What the hell does that even mean?

You know I have been in L.A. for almost two years now, and I haven't gotten a single acting job. I've accomplished nothing. I haven't gotten

a raise at work. I haven't even had sex in six months. And just now, when I was walking up those stairs, a fly flew in my mouth and I ate it!

Well, actually, insects are a dietary staple in many cultures. They're almost pure protein.

Oh, son of a bitch! I am frustrated because I am a failure at everything And my breath smells like fly.

There, there. Would you prefer to wait in our apartment?

No, Sheldon, I'd rather sit on this freezing-cold floor sobbing like a three-year-old.

All right, then.

For heaven's sake.

Just when I think I've gotten the hang of sarcasm.

Make yourself comfortable. Not there.

Sheldor is back online.


The Conqueror.

What are you doing?


I'm playing Age of Conan, an online multiplayer game set in the universe of Robert E. Howard's Conan the Barbarian.

Sheldor back online.

What's "AFK"?

AFK. Away from keyboard.


What does that stand for?

Oh, I see.

Yes, but what does it stand for?

Now, just click on the enchanted boots to put them on.

Mm, I don't know. Can I see them in another color?

Just click on them. Yeah, congratulations. You are now a level-three warrior.

What's going on?

Leonard, guess what? I'm a level-three warrior.

Great. Do you know there are groceries outside of your apartment?

Yeah, yeah, yeah. Shh.

I only bring it up because your ice cream's melting And it's starting to attract wildlife.

Uh-huh, yeah. Do I stay in the jungle or go towards the beach?

It doesn't matter right now; you're looking for treasure.

Wait, wait, where are you going? No, no.

You're okay. If you run into crocodiles, just kick them with your boots.

You want to catch me up?

Well, let's see. Uh, she attempted to open her apartment with her car key because her face is overly Midwestern. She hasn't had sex in six months. And she ate a fly.

Seriously? six months?

Oh, my god! A treasure chest! I'm rich!

Level three, and she thinks she's rich. What a newb.
