1. I believe you, I'm just sayin' --
    It was bad, Chad. Bad.
  2. I hear ya, b//ut --
    But you're not listenin', Chad: it was bad!
  3. No you're not listenin', 'cause>
    ?Real bad ...
  4. I'm tryin' to tell you that I had a pretty bad time myself!!!
    No. There's no way!--
  5. It was pretty bad, Randy.
  6. Yeah.
    Okay ... go.
  7. She -- ... said she didn't like the way I smelled.
  8. Sally told me she didn't like the way I smelled. Never has.
    Sally Dunleavy told you that she didn't // like the way -- ...?
  9. Yeah.
  10. When I picked her up. She got in the truck -- we were backin' outta her driveway -- and all of a sudden, she starts breathin' hard and asked me to stop and she got outta the truck and said she was sorry, but she couldn't go out with me because she didn't like the way I smelled, never had!
  11. Said she thought she was gonna be able to overlook it, the way that I smelled, but that that wasn't gonna be possible after all, and she slammed the door on me and left me sittin' right there in her driveway.
    'cause she didn't like that way you smelled?
  12. Yeah.
    Well what kinda --...? I don't mind the way you smell.
  13. Thanks.
  14. Yeah ... Told you it was bad.
    More than bad, Chad. That's sad.
  15. Yeah. So, I'm guessin' I'm the big winner tonight, huh? So ... I get to pick tomorrow, and I pick bowiln'. We'll go bowlin', supper at the Snowmobile Club ... coupla beers at The Moose Paddy ... and just hang out.
    I didn't say you're the big winner,
  16. What?
    did I say you're the big winner?
  17. No --
    No. All that's pretty sad, Chad, and bad, but you didn't win.
  18. What do you mean?
    You didn't win.
  19. You can beat bein' told you smelled bad?
  20. Well, then ...
    Mine's face broke.
  21. What?
    Her face broke.
  22. Her --?
    Only get one chance with a girl like Yvonne LaFrance, and her face brok. Told you it was bad.
  23. How did her face break?
    When we were dancin'.
  24. Dancin'?
  25. Why were you dancin'?
    'Cause that's what she wanted to do. On our date. So I took her. Took her dancin' down to the rec center. You pay, then you get a lesson, then you dance all night. THey teach "together dancing," how to dance together, and we learned that thing where you throw the girl up and over, and, Yvonne -- well, she's pretty small ... and I'm pretty strong. And I threw her up and over, and well ... I threw her ... over ... over. And she landed on her face. And it broke. Had to take her to the emergency room.
  26. That's a drive.
    Thirty-eight miles.
  27. Yup.
    And she cried.
  28. Hate that.
    Whole way. Then had me call her old boyfriend to come get her.
  29. Ooh.
    He did. Asked me to "please leave." He's small as she is. What?
  30. That's just -- pretty bad.
  31. And sad.
  32. So ... I guess you win.
  33. That right there might make you the big winner of all time!
  34. "Baddest-date-guy" of all time!
  35. Congratulations!
    Thank you!
  36. So what do you pick tomorrow?
    Bowlin'. Supper at the Snowmobile Club. Coupla beers at the Moose Paddy. Hang out.
  37. Good.
  38. I don't know. Just sometimes ... I don't know why I bother goin' "out." I don't like it, Randy. I hate it. I hate goin' out on these dates. I mean, why do I wanna spend my Friday night with some girl I might maybe like, when I could be spendin' it hangin' out with someone I know I like, like you, you know?
  39. CHAD. I mean ... that was rough tonight. In the mddle of Sally tellin' me how she didn't like the way I smelled ... I got real sad,>
  40. and all I could think about was how not much in this world makes me feel god or makes much sense anymore, and I got really scared, 'cause there's gotta be something that makes you feel good or at least makes sense in this world, or what's the point, right? But then I kinda came out of bein' sad, and actually felt okay, 'cause I realized that there is one thing in this world that makes me feel really good and that does make sense and it's you.
    Well I'm gonna head.
  41. Yeah.
    I gotta work in the mornin' ...
  42. Well, I'm just supervisin' first shift at the mill, so I can pick you up anytime after three --
    Oh, I don't know, Chad: Me and Lendall, we got a long day tomorrow -- we're still catchin' up, fixin' roofs from all the snow in December, // gotta do Marvalyn and Eric's, and --
  43. Well, four//
    Prob'ly busy all day, I don't know when we'll be // done.
  44. Well, you just //
    I don't know, I don't know!, so,
  45. Well --
    I'll see ya later!
  46. Yeah. Yeah-yeah-yeah ... Hey, Randy! --
    Whoa! Chad! You okay?
  47. Yeah ...
    What the -- ... Here ...
  48. Thanks. Umm ...
    What was that? You okay? What just happened there?
  49. Umm ... I just fell ...
    Well, I figured that out ...
  50. No -- ... I just --. I think I just ... fell in love with you there, Randy.
  51. Yup. That's what that was. Me fallin in love with you ...
    Chad: What are you doin'? Come on, get up!
  52. No-no-no, Randy --
    Would you cut that out?!?
  53. Well, I can't help it!! It just kinda came over me!! I've fallen in love with ya, here!!
    Chad: I'm your best buddy in the whole world ... and I don't quite know what you're doin' or what you're goin' on about ... but what the heck is your problem?!? What the heck are you doin'?!? Jeezum Crow, you're my best friend,
  54. Yeah--
    and that's -- ... That's a thing you don't mess with. And you messed with it. And you don't do that. (Starts to go but...) 'Cause you know somethin', you're about the only thing that feels really good and makes sense in this world to me, too, and then you go and foul it up, by doin' this and tellin' me that, amd now it just doesn't make any sense at all. And it doesn't feel good. (Starts to go but...) You've done a real number on a good thing, here, buddy, 'cause we're friends, and there's a line when you're friends that you can't cross. And you crossed it!
