FADE IN: INT. APARTMENT MID-AFTERNOON Two men are sitting on a couch at opposite ends playing video games. Jenkins is casually dressed and losing. While Parker is in sweatpants and intently playing the game. JENKINS You ever think about leaving? PARKER Leaving where? JENKINS Your job. PARKER I did think about it once. My boss told me to stop smoking outside the store because he said it scared away customers. I got mad, but it’s good pay, and I can take off whenever I need it. JENKINS (looks at Parker) But don’t you ever want to do something you actually like? PARKER (still looking at TV) If it makes me money, I like it. JENKINS Spoken like a true slacker. .. didn’t you wear that shirt yesterday? PARKER (looks at Jenkins) I’m not a slacker. And yes, I did wear this shirt yesterday.

PARKER What can I say? I love to bask in my shame. So what time should I call in for the Chinese food? JENKINS You know, we don’t have to get Chinese food tonight. PARKER Jenkins, it’s Wednesday. We always get Chinese food on Wednesday. What if the NFL decided one Monday that they wouldn’t have Monday Night Football, and instead pushed it to Tuesday? The whole world would crumble. JENKINS Chinese food and Monday Night Football are two very different things.

3. PARKER (whining) Not in my world. Monday Night Football and Wednesday night Chinese are how I run my life. Everything is tradition, everything is routine. I mean, it’s always been like this for us. We can’t just change the way we. .. JENKINS (interrupting) Ok, ok, ok! We can have Chinese food. I’ll have my regular. PARKER (angry) You still haven’t answered my fucking question. What time should I call for the food? JENKINS Six, seven, whenever. What time do we normally call? Isn’t that part of the tradition? PARKER
