triangle Script 대본 Roteiro Texto

Sarah: Where is the pancake mix?

Joel: Oh, was I... Yeah, I was. Sorry.

Sarah: I was going to make you birthday pancakes. I swear.

Joel: You know I don't really like pancakes.

Sarah: I know you don't like them. It was for my benefit. Vitamin C.

Joel: (Did) You get your homework done? Fractions?

Sarah: How old are you again?

Joel: Thirty-six.

Sarah: You are going to have to wear diapers soon.

Joel: Who says I don't already? Shell.

Sarah: Calcium.

Joel: Lovely. Is there enough for Uncle Tommy?

Sarah: There would've been.

Tommy: Ay! You're still alive, you old fucker.

Sarah: Aw, he loves you.

Joel: He's dependent on me. It's not the same.

Sarah: I think it's the same.

Tommy: It's definitely the same. I thought we was having pancakes.

Joel: We'll pick you something up on the road. Are the concrete guys going to be there?

Tommy: Yeah, they said maybe.

Joel: Maybe? We can't frame until we pour. We're not getting paid until we frame.

Tommy: Well, we could bring someone else on, and get the job done faster.

Joel: No, no. I'm not splitting this job. I barely want to split it with you. We could work a double.

Sarah: Literally? Today?

Joel: I know. I'd be done by nine. By nine, right?

Tommy: Yeah.

Joel: I'll bring back a cake. I promise.
