SCRIPT:

CHARACTER 1

Sorry I’m late, (CHARACTER 2 NAME), This place was hard to find.

CHARACTER 2

Finally! I was wondering if you would show up!

CHARACTER 1

Yeah, Yeah… What is this about? You said it was really important.

CHARACTER 2

It IS important, (CHARACTER 1 NAME), Look at this!

CHARACTER 1

I thought that’s what this was about. I could smell that (OBJECT)

when I got here.

CHARACTER 2

We’re in trouble. I’ve got a warehouse full of these (OBJECTS) and no

one is buying them.

CHARACTER 1

Why don’t you just dump them?

CHARACTER 2

Are you crazy? These (OBJECTS) are worth a fortune. We have to sell

them.

CHARACTER 1

I think you’re the crazy one. No one wants (OBJECTS) anymore!

CHARACTER 2

We just need a place to sell these.

CHARACTER 1

Oh. Well. Why not here?

CHARACTER 2

Hmm. I don’t see why not! Put up a couple shelves, some signs…  

That’s a fine idea.

CHARACTER 1

You’ve lost your mind. Seriously.

CHARACTER 2

Say that to me once I’ve turned this place into the one-stop shop

for (OBJECTS) in the whole city.

CHARACTER 1

Count me out.

CHARACTER 2

Time is wasting! We better get moving.

CHARACTER 1

I’m leaving.

CHARACTER 2

I’ll call the warehouse and tell them to bring us (NUMBER) pallets of

(OBJECTS) up right away.

CHARACTER 2

Wait! Don’t you want to hear about my advertising ideas?

(CHARACTER 1 NAME)!!!
