(to Tim)

Timmy-boy!

Tim makes a "smooth sailing" gesture with his hand. Buff roles

over to Tim on his roller blades. He sweeps off a piece of

concrete and places down a slice of pizza. Buff begins to play

hockey with two empty beer cans on the ground. He shoots one at

the dumpster and the other at Tim.

BUFF:

Peace! Ah, time's running out, three, two, one!

He shoots the beer can at Tim, barely missing him. Jeff walks up

from around the corner holding a package of cookies he just

bought. Nazeer is right behind him eating something.

BUFF (CONT'D)

Score! Yeah!

NAZEER:

Hey, hey, seven-twenty. Seven-twenty.

Jeff turns around.

JEFF:

What?

NAZEER:

Seven-twenty.

JEFF:

I gave it to you.

BUFF:

He paid you man.

NAZEER:

You owe me twenty cents. Come on, seven-twenty. Seven-twenty.

BUFF:

Yo! Your spitting rice all over us! God.

Jeff digs into his pockets.

JEFF:

Here's twenty-five cents.

Nazeer takes the money and walks away.

JEFF (CONT'D)

Guy should cut down on his caffeine intake.

BUFF:

Needs some pizza in his diet.

Buff is eating his slice of pizza and skating around the group.

TIM:

I don't think I like that guy's attitude at all. Hey, you know

what? Take off the blades. I mean it. I'm gonna break your

f*cking legs. Take 'em off.

BUFF:

You're fascist, man. Neofascist.

He sits down and begins to take of his blades.

TIM:

Buff, sit. You know what I mean though? Somebody ought to crack

that guy with a baseball bat.

JEFF:

Yeah, well, he's from a Third World country. He doesn't have it

easy.

TIM:

What? What the f*ck do you know about the third world? You been

there? No? No, well, I have. F*ckers live like sardines in a can

over there, you know. Everything stinks. It's true, there's no,

you know, law, no order. No nothing. The assholes come over here,

they think it's gonna be the same.
