Scene 1: erak and eggie are walking down the quarter-mile stretch of Queens Boulevard between Target and their apartment building during a partly-cloudy sunset. eggie is carrying a single Target shopping bag, reaching in every few seconds for a small handful of Honey Nut Cheerios. erak carries a Target bag as well as a small Best Buy bag and eats nothing.

erak: There was a real hot dog vendor moment at Best Buy.

eggie: (chewing) mm-hmm?

erak: The girl who rung me out? Well, her register was right next to a TV showing the menu of the Ghostbusters Blu-Ray. The theme song was constantly playing on a loop. She probably has to hear that her entire shift. I don't know why they do that, play sounds on DVD menus. Really annoying. Especially when they show specific scenes. It spoils stuff.

eggie: Well, why would someone buy a DVD? For repeat viewings.

erak: I guess. But there are still kids out there who haven't seen it. I mean, think of it this way. You know when you're at a movie and all the stupid people laugh hysterically at the joke we've all seen in the trailer a thousand times? I mean it's like "dude, we know the joke already, move on".

eggie: It could just be a really funny joke. Or something taken out of con-

erak: -text, right. No, let's just say this joke is the same as it's presented in the trailer. Now, years pass, all memory of the trailer is gone. You see that joke, and it's funny again. It has just as much value of unexpectedness as the rest of them.

eggie: I've really got to stop eating Cheerios. I don't think I need dinner anymore.

erak: Who was the guy who wrote the Ghostbusters theme anyway? Ray Parker, was that his name? Huey Lewis sued him for it. Sounded too much like I Want a New Drug. It does. Weird Al made a parody of it. I Want a New Duck. I wonder if MGBM has heard it.

eggie: (referring to the box of Cheerios she's now closing) Okay, no more.

-----

Scene 2: eggie and erak are waiting for the elevator in their apartment building. It has been 48 seconds since Scene 1. eggie has reopened the box of Cheerios and continues snacking on its content.

erak: You suck at this.

Actually, I never closed the box of Cheerios between scenes.

And stop stepping on my lines!

I really hate it when someone brings their laptop to a movie and starts reading quotes from it.

I hate people who whine about DVD menu music.

Oh!! And I HATE epic Jew-Fro's.


I LOVE eggplant, though!!

I wonder if MGBM has heard about this?


What's really COOL about your thread is that you would think of MGBM when you're doing stuff IRL!!!!

Wow!! Way cooler than me dreaming about all of you guys!!!

Chit Chat has invaded our lives. That night, while half asleep:

erak: Dominion won the Spiel de Jahres.

eggie: I didn't even know the nominations were out.

Yes, Jeff and I were just discussing whether or not the SdJ nominations were out last night.

Edit: I blame erak.
