triangle Script 대본 Texto

Davis: Hey!

Jules: Hi. Wait, you live here?

Davis: Yeah, Ben's been putting me up until I can find a place. Oh, should I let him know that you're here?

Jules: That's okay. I'll ring.

Davis: Okay.

Jules: So, I was ready kind of early this morning, since about 4:00, and Matt and Paige left an hour ago for a field trip. So I thought I'd come by. I hope that's okay.

Ben: Yeah.

Jules: I just wanted to say that I slept on it. I haven't called Townsend yet, but I still feel like it's the right thing to do.

Ben: Well, I didn't sleep so well myself.

Jules: Over this?

Ben: You remember the day I drove you to the warehouse? You were giving me the wrong directions and all that?

Jules: Yeah. I remember.

Ben: Okay, well, I stood in the back, and I watched you show the workers how to fold and box the clothes. I knew then that was why ATF was a success. No one else is ever gonna have that kind of commitment to your company, Jules.

Ben: To me, it's pretty simple. About the fit needs you, and if you don't mind me saying, you need it. Someone may come in with more experience than you, but they're never gonna know what you know.

Ben: I never had anything like this in my life. Not many people do. This big, beautiful, exciting thing that you created.

Ben: You should feel nothing but great about what you've done. And I'd hate to see you let anyone take that away from you.

Ben: I guess you came over here because you wanted to hear some of this.

Becky: I'm not sure. He said he was taking the day off.

Jules: I'm so sorry to interrupt.

Ben: That's okay.

Ben: Extend your left arm, Jules. Left knee up. Breathe and relax for inner balance. Am I doing it right?

Jules: I’ve got something good to tell you.

Ben: Great. Tell me when we're done.

Ben: Breathe deeply, Jules. That's it, out there. This up.
