triangle Script 대본 Texto


Becky: This is... This is crazy, Ben. Two desks are not going to fit in here.

Ben: No, I promise I'll stay out of your way.

Becky: But it's impossible because now I don't have room for...

Jules: Hi. This is good, right? I like this arrangement.

Jules: Uh, Becky, I want you to let Ben give you a hand, okay? And cc him on all my e-mails? Did we get yesterday's numbers?

Becky: Uh, yes, we did. I saw them here. Here you go.

Jules: And I need to go over the data on customer purchase patterns. Let Ben take a look at that, too. Actually, let Ben take a look at that first.

Becky: Okay.

Jules: Don't worry, Becky. Backup's good. Ping me when Cameron gets in?

Jason: Hey.

Ben: Becky?

Becky: I've been here nine months, Ben, and she's never asked me to take a look at anything for her ever, okay?

Ben: I hear you. That's frustrating.

Becky: I mean, totally. I graduated from Penn. I have a business degree. But I never seem to do anything right around here. And you're like 50 years older than me and you're deaf.

Ben: I happen to think you do a lot of things right.

Jason: You do so much.

Becky: I know. I know that. But she doesn’t. I mean, I bust my ass for her 14 hours a day, and she never notices.


Cameron: That’s very nice St. Louis. Suede jacket in D.C.

Jules: I'm so happy.

Cameron: Beautiful Miami. Thank you.

Jules: Oh. Look at Chicago. She put the same boots in her cart as the woman from Houston.

Cameron Okay, let's see what she does at checkout. She's not buying them either.

Jules: Okay, maybe check the delivery cost on those boots?

Cameron: Mm-Hmm.

Ben: Hi. I took a look at the data purchase patterns. Should I come back?

Jules: No, no, come on in. That was fast.

Ben: Well, I enlisted Becky's help.

Ben: It seems the most expensive place you're advertising Is actually bringing you the customers who are spending the least. And the channels you're least investing in Are adding enormous value in segments that currently appear to have low value but actually have the highest spending potential. That's what I could tell so far.

Jules: Oh, Ben. Can you, like, deal with that for me? Maybe come up with a better plan? I mean, if you have the time?

Ben: Happy to.

Jules: The man spent 40 years in business.

Cameron: Yeah, no, I get it.

Ben: And, Jules, Becky was a huge help in this. You know, she has a business degree from Penn?

Jules: I know. I mean, I forgot, but I know. I'll say something to her.

Ben: That would be very nice.
