Act One

 

DAN is in the restaurant talking to MANAGER. DAN is really angry at him.

 

DAN

What do you mean I’m fired?

 

MANAGER

You made tacos with poison inside!

 

DAN

Well, I don’t care.

 

MANAGER

Oh, you shut up.

 

DAN

It’s no fair!

 

MANAGER

Well, you always make awful stuff!

 

DAN

Wahhh!

 

MANAGER

Bye.

 

One day later, DAN comes back to try to persuade MANAGER to give him his job back.

 

DAN

I’m back.

 

MANAGER

Leave.

 

DAN

No!

 

MANAGER

Leave!

 

DAN

Stop.

 

MANAGER

Well, I forgot to tell you we hired a new chef. He is Chef Curry.

 

DAN

Is he the best three point shooter ever?

 

MANAGER

I don’t know, and I don’t care.

 

DAN

Okay, but is he?

 

MANAGER

Just shut up and leave!

 

DAN

Fine!

 

DAN sadly walks home.

 

DAN

Ummm, everyone, I got fired from my-

 

DAN’S FRIEND

Did you get fired from your job?!

 

DAN

Maybe.

 

DAN’S FRIEND

I hate you. Get back and ask them again. Plus, where have you been? I haven’t seen you in one day.

 

DAN

Well, I tried earlier today, and it failed again. I stayed over at somebody’s house last night because I knew you would kill me.

 

DAN’S FRIEND

Well, I won’t kill you, but I will help you try again.

 

DAN

Okay.

 

DAN’S FRIEND

Let’s go.

 

DAN

Hold up. can we eat dinner first, and what is it?

 

DAN’S FRIEND

Maybe… sushi.

 

DAN

Okay.

DAN’S FRIEND

Okay, let’s get going.

 

DAN

But it is so early in the morning!

 

DAN’S FRIEND

Do you want your job back?

 

DAN

Fine.

 

DAN and his friend walk to the restaurant to ask MANAGER one more time.

 

DAN’S FRIEND

Where is the location again?

 

DAN

I always look at my phone for directions, and, as you guess, they took the link off.

 

DAN’S FRIEND

Well, why don’t we look at Google Maps?

 

DAN

Oh yeah. You are a genius.

 

DAN’S FRIEND

I know.

 

Five minutes later they reach the restaurant and try again to ask MANAGER to get his job back.

 

DAN

Okay, I’ll talk to the manager.

 

DAN’S FRIEND

No you’re not.

 

DAN

Why?

 

DAN’S FRIEND

Because you failed twice.

 

DAN

Fine.                                                             

 

DAN’S FRIEND talks to MANAGER.

 

MANAGER

Hey, what on Earth do you want from me?

 

DAN’S FRIEND

Ummm-

 

MANAGER

Well, shut up and leave.

 

DAN’S FRIEND

Hey, don’t say “shut up” to me, and I need to get my friend’s job back!

 

MANAGER

Ohh, wait a minute. Do you want that dumb wimp’s job back? What a jerk.

 

DAN’S FRIEND

I will hurt you!

 

MANAGER

Say that all you want.

 

MANAGER gets kicked in the butt and is moaning in pain.

 

MANAGER

Ouch!!!

 

DAN’S FRIEND

It’s your fault!

 

MANAGER

Fine, let him back, but arrest this dummy!

 

DAN’S FRIEND

Ahh!!! HELP ME!!!

Get her!

 

DAN

Oh no you won’t!

 

Boing! DAN crashes into MANAGER, and they both get hurt.

 

MANAGER

Ouch!

Act Five

 

DAN

Dang it. She ditched me, and now I’m lonely. This is horrible! I basically killed somebody! This is awful, and my friend is gone. I suck, and now she hates me. I do hate the manager, and it’s a good thing she helped me, but I never told her why I did it and what I did. All I said was I lost my job, and she still got mad! This is horribly horrible. I won’t send an apology, and I won’t ever, ever, ever talk to her again!

DAN’S FRIEND

Wahhh!

Act Seven

 

DAN’S FRIEND

Nooo!!! He got rid of my friend, but now I want to actually be his friend! I have no friends, and he has no job! I’m really sad. I bet you a million bucks that he is also sitting on his bed, sad, thinking about me like I’m thinking about him. Tomorrow I will go to him, and eat dinner with him, and talk about being friends with him.
