Bob
How was that, eh?

Doug
Beauty! Take it up to thirty this time!

Bob
No way, eh? It's my turn! I want...[phone rings--Bob answers it]

Doug
Ok, I'll just disconnect these...

Bob
Hello? No, he's not here. He, uh, went to get a pizza. Who's this?
[guy hangs up] Geez. He hung up, eh? [Bob jumps on bed.]

Doug
Put this in your mouth so you don't bite your tongue, ok? Let's try the
head this time!

Bob
Ok!

Doug
Beauty! If you'd stick to your twelve-point maintenance plan we
wouldn't have to jump start you like this, but oh no, you had to do it
your way! You think you know everything. Here we go, I think we're
going to take it up to 90 this time! [Ted arrives.]

Ted
Hey! Get away from there! Don't touch those things! No, no, no, no,
no! You're always touching things!

Doug
Take off, eh?

Bob
He's party-pooping, eh? Hey! Some guy called while you were out, eh?

Ted
The phone? For me?

Bob
Yeah. [to Doug] Do it now, eh?

Doug
No! No way...he'll get me!

Bob
Aw, come on! What about my turn!?

Doug
Let's do this instead!

Bob
Hey! [LaRose enters room.]

Bob
How's it going, eh?

LaRose
Shhh!

Bob
It's going pretty good, eh?

LaRose
Shhhhhh! [LaRose knocks Ted out.]

Doug
He doesn't like him very much!

LaRose
Pam! Where's Pam? I've got to find Pam!

Bob
Geez, I saw her down the hall but she was dozing off, eh?

LaRose
Come on!

Doug
Come on!

Bob
Aw, geez! We've got to come back for my turn, eh?

Clip, only part of the scene though ….

Trivia …

The basic plot as well as many of the name of the brewing company are references to William Shakespeare’s “Hamlet”. The castle in “Hamlet” was Elsinore. The heir to Elsinore’s father was murdered by her uncle, who then comes to her as a ghost. In Hamlet, the uncle’s name was Claudius, and in the movie he is named Claude.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?
