pt 52: NICKEL

Scampi: It is deep down in the earth.  Like, in the mines, but they aren’t mines, just rock below us.

Peter: What?

Scampi: Seams of, I dunno, emotion and like, raw material.

Peter: I have no idea what you’re talking about.

Scampi: That’s because I’m on an island in the middle of nowhere.  Or in the middle of Greenwich, if you’re going to get all longitudinal at me.

Peter: [SIGHS.]  Are you having a geographically-based episode or something?

Scampi: Episode?  Am I a teevee show?

Peter: You seem to be in a highly agitated state.

Scampi: What, like Arkansas?

Peter: Really.

Scampi: Ha ha.  Ho ho.

Peter: Come now.

Scampi:  Hey hey, ho ho, Peter wants my puns to go!

Peter: Jesus!

Scampi: Yes, Judas?


Scampi: Oh.  Oops.  Uh.  Sorry?  Peter?

Peter: Yes?

Scampi: I’m only teasing.

Peter: To what end?

Scampi: I dunno.  I’m in a goofy mood.

Peter: You are giving me a migraine.

Scampi: Sorry.

Peter: Fine.

Scampi: I was thinking about all sorts of stuff.  I was thinking about precious metals and everything.

Peter: You had better go to bed.

Scampi: Aye, skip.  Full’n’bye.

Peter: Now.

Scampi: Oh, now?

Peter: Probably.

Scampi: I think you’re right.



Scampi: What if you had been there and heard it on the radio?


Peter: And? What if I had?


Scampi: Actually, let’s abandon this line.


Peter: That should be quite simple.


Scampi: I don’t want to talk about the bombing of Coventry.


Peter: Okay.


Scampi: Horrible stuff.


Peter: What brings this up?


Scampi: Who cares?


Peter: Right.


Scampi: I don’t want to think about it, hearing the war on the radio.


Peter: I’m sure it would be nicer than hearing the war in your ears.


Scampi: What do you listen to the radio with? Your nose?


Peter: No.


Scampi: Well then.


Peter: SIGHS.


Scampi: It’s too hot.
