triangle Script 대본 Roteiro Texto

Phil: And we have... lift-off. Yello … house of the future.

Claire: Phil, you have two whole days to yourself. Please tell me you're not going to spend them trying to wire the house to your iPad.

Phil: Nope, 'cause I've already done it. I think when you get home, you're going to be very surprised to see that this house has an actual functioning brain in it.

Claire: Great. Great. Now go out and see some friends.

Phil: I'm headed out now. I have a third showing at that colonial. Cam gave me a free pass to his gym. I am not that bright. I am dim!

Claire: Honey, if you could hear yourself. Promise me you'll go outside and play.

Phil: Miss you, too. Phil Dunphy, this is the year 2025. Welcome. You're the first one here.

Dave: Wait, what are the last four numbers again?

Phil: 1-9-8-4. It's kind of a lucky number for me. It's the year "Footloose" came out.

Dave: Yeah. And I really am going to call you for that rematch.

Phil: Anytime. I mean, not super late, but... wait, you're a bulldog?

Dave: Yeah. You?

Phil: (ruff ruff) I knew there was something about you I liked.

Dave: You mean besides me letting you win?

Phil: You know, we have a big game today. You want to watch it together? Shoot. I'm-- I'm late for a showing. No pressure at all, but if you feel like it, we could watch it at my place. I could text you the address.

Dave: All right. Well, thanks. It was great meeting you, Phil.

Phil: You, too, Dave.

Dave: Hey, it's me. Yeah, you were totally right about this gym. I just met the cutest guy.

Cam: What did I tell you? That place is like a gay bar with dumbbells. Redundant.

Dave: Well, I don't know much about him, but he invited me over to his place to watch a football game tonight.

Cam: Oh, my gosh, a date. I have a good feeling about this.

Dave: Well, don't start planning the wedding yet. I mean, I'm not even sure if it's a date date.

Cam: You met him at hook up central. Of course it's a date date.

Dave: Am I even ready for a date date?

Cam: Tough love time, David. Simon left you six months ago, and bumming everyone out. It's time to get back up on that horse.

Phil: Hope to see you tonight, Dave. (ruff)

Cam: I can't remember the last time a man made that sound for me.

Phil: There's my man.

Dave: That's me – your man. I brought spinach dip. I don't know why.

Phil: I'll tell you why. 'Cause it's delicious, and you're an awesome guest. Get in here.

Dave: All right.

Phil: How are you?

Dave: Good. You?

Phil: Good.

Phil: By the way, I left a message for my brother-in-law and his partner to join us, too.

Dave: More people. Good. Nice house, by the way.

Phil: Thanks.

Dave: Wait a minute. Is that your family? Are you married?

Phil: Yeah, but don't worry. We have the house to ourselves. They're all out of town. I am long overdue for a boy's night.

Dave: So your wife is okay with...

Phil: Oh yeah. She suggested it. She knows I need this every so often. As long as I clean up afterwards, she's fine.

Dave: Oh.

Phil: You ready for a margarita?

Dave: Sure.

Cam: Excuse me. Hello?

Dave: He's married. To a woman! Yeah, she's out of town. I don't know. They must have some sort of arrangement or something.

Cam: So what? If they know about it, who cares? You're not ready for a relationship anyway. Just have some fun.

Dave: It feels weird. He has other people coming over. I think I'm going to bail on this.

Cam: He's just feeling you out like you're feeling him out. I promise you, these other guests will mysteriously cancel.

Dave: Hold on just a second, sweetie.

Phil: More margaritas for us. The other guys just cancelled.

Cam: Are you still there?

Dave: You were right. The other guys just cancelled.

Cam: See? Now listen to me. You're going to have two margaritas. Maybe start a third. Laugh at his jokes, but not in that high falsetto thing. Something more manly. Let's practice.

Dave: I'm not going to laugh for you. You can be very controlling, you know that?

Cam: Why does everybody say I'm controlling?

Dave: Gotta go.
