An excerpt …

(Here’s the problem …)

TRINA: (driving a car) You started this, didn’t you?

SUZIE: Sorta ... but it was really Rick’s idea.

TRINA: That stupid argument. You had to get in that stupid argument about dating.

RICK: (at his house) Look, I just told her that the guy has to do all the work on a date while the girl has all the fun. You know what Suzie’s like. We argue all the time.

JOEL: So how’d I get roped into this?

SUZIE: (in the car) Trina, you’re my best friend! We always double date! I had to get you involved because we’re buds!

TRINA: Tonight could be the end of our friendship, Suzie. (stopping the car) Well, here we are.

(The girls go to pick up their dates.)

RICK: Oh great. There they are. Now you remember what to do? The girls are gonna play the guys’ part tonight and we’re gonna do the girls stuff.

JOEL: If somebody has a camera I’m goin’ home.

RICK: Why don’t you girls go out back and shoot baskets or something while Joel and I giggle a while?

TRINA: Real funny, Rick. You wanna open the door? People are driving by.

RICK: (to Joel) You look marvelous, Joel. (shouting through the door) Joel’s been tanning all day! He looks great!

JOEL: Remind me to bust you in the nose when this is over.

RICK: He’s just got to powder his nose!

SUZIE: Come on, Rick! The reservations are for six o’clock!

RICK: I’m hurrying! I’m hurrying! You just don’t know what it’s like, Suzie! First I had to get my nails done then Joel and I went shopping all afternoon and …

SUZIE: Rick, open this door!

(They go to a restaurant.)

SUZIE: Ketchup! Hey waiter! I need somethin’ to put on my breadsticks!

RICK: Suzie! (catches himself) I mean … Joel, you wanna go the restroom again? It’s been almost two minutes.

TRINA: (jumping in on Suzie’s tact) Hey waiter! You serve Mountain Dew? It gives me gas when I drink it fast but I like the way it tickles my nose!

SUZIE: Here’s the waiter. Where you been? Geesh. We should gone to McDonalds. (Joel and Rick are embarrassed) Okay ... so let’s see what we got here? I’ll take some Fillet MiG-Non steak ... a salad with Roakie-Fort dressin’… could I have extra onions? I like onions. And … uh … you got Tater Tots? Huh? Well just what kinda restaurant ain’t got Tater Tots.
