Hmm, Grumpy never has mail! The bills are usually under my name.

 

(Speedy notices the mail with Grumpy’s name on it is the letter

from U.C. Berkeley Grumpy’s been expectin all week)

 

SPEEDY

WHAT THE FUNK!!? How did this square get in and I didn’t.

This must be fake or am I in a dream.

 

(Speedy decides to hide the letter under the bed. Then walks

in the living room slapping himself in the head repeatedly,

thinking he’s in a dream, but gets interupted by Grumpy’s

appearance at the front door.)

 

 

GRUMPY

What’s with the commotion slow one??

 

(Speedy looks up in confusion)

 

 

SPEEDY

GRUMPY

audition for the 3 Stooges, ha!

and decides to trick Speedy that he has a letter from

and tells Speedy if he don’t give him his letter he’s going to rip

GRUMPY

SPEEDY

You lied to me, why?  I was going to give you your

stupid letter.

 

 

GRUMPY

No you wasn’t, that’s waht you get, karma’s a trip. But why

SPEEDY

I’m better than you and you know it.

 

 

GRUMPY

That’s the problem you always thinking about yourself!!

You never look at the bigger picture.  What about me

Huh?

 

 

SPEEDY

That’s the thing I wasn’t thinking about you Grumpy. I was

thinking if I didn’t get in, than you shouldn’t either.

 

 

GRUMPY

Why would you think like that, I would never stop you

from getting in a college you been wanting to get in

since you were a kid.  You know what, I’m sorry Speedy

but your on your own. I”m going to sign these papers

and move on with my life.  You been a pain in my butt

since we were kids. Now I’m done.

 

 

SPEEDY
