William: Yes?

Desmond: Just thought I’d… you know… say hi.

William: You have more important things to do right now.

Desmond: Jesus, Dad.

William: What? What do you want me to say?

Desmond: I don’t know. ‘Hi, son. How are you? What have you been up to?’

William: I know what you’ve been up to. Nothing. You wasted away in some shitty apartment with a pointless job, while the rest of us were out there fighting to make a difference.

Desmond: You are such an asshole. Oh, you thinking about hitting me again? Because this time, I will hit back.


Shaun: I’m not sure I can keep this up, you know. This job is well below my skill level.

Rebecca: Yeah well your coffee is shit. You could use some practice.

Shaun: Wh- What? No no no, I followed that recipe to the letter.

Rebecca: It’s an art, Shaun. Not a science.

Shaun: Oh, look who’s here. So you didn’t forget after all. You’re just incredibly rude, and made poor Rebecca here wait for nearly thirty minutes.

Rebecca: You limey. Be nice. Sorry about him. He’s high on his own supply. So how should we do this? Data transfer? Great! That should do it! We’ll email you the receipt. Til next time. Take care Shaun.

Shaun: Bye, bye… Yes, bye. Oh, and don’t expect any more free coffee! Arrogant. She’s great isn’t she?
