Nick Burns: Hey, Rhonda, you’re not letting Parker corrupt your harddrive with that crap about the Q-bar, are you?
Rhonda: Oh, don’t worry. This guy’s not getting anywherenear my hard drive!
Parker: I was just saying that the Qube looks better than the G-4tower.
Nick Burns: Oh, yeah? So does Cindy Margulies, but I can’t runQuicken on her.
Parker: [ laughing ] Touche! I would have said Danni Ashe, becauseshe shows her melons. But still, a good one, Nick!
Rhonda: Really good one, Nick. Where ya’ been?
Nick Burns: Oh, jeepers creepers.. I was trying to help those moronson the 3rd floor. They’re trying to run RealPlayer behind a firewall withoutthe proxy set. Can you believe that?

Nick Burns: Uh-huh. Yeah. Move! God, do you run the Interneton this thing? It looks like it’s got a 28.8, or something!
[ techies laugh ]
Rhonda: We could upgrade your modem to a 56.6! [ laughs ]
Employee: Can you.. can you do that?
Parker: Oh, sure. If we had a time machine, and set it back to 1998! [ laughs ]
Employee: [ faux laughs ] Can you please just help me? It just frozeup. I need an e-mail – it’s very important, it’s for a report that I’mdoing today.
Nick Burns: Did you make a back-up file?
Nick Burns: Never do. Just leave it here – we’ll do some carbon-dating on it!
Employee: I don’t like you guys. [ exits ]
Rhonda: Wow.. if we need any replacement parts, we’ll use anAtari 2600!
Nick Burns: That’s a good one, Rhonda!
Rhonda: You know what irks me? Those buffoons never back-up their files.
Parker: Oh, I don’t have to worry about that. I set up my Retrospectremote to back-up my hard drive every Sunday at 3 a.m.
Nick Burns: [ laughing ] Retrospect only works with your documents,not your third-party software!
Rhonda: Say goodbye to your system resources! [ laughs ]
Parker: Well, hey.. can you guys cover for me? I better go homeand back that stuff up. Are you gonna be on-line later?
Nick Burns: Yeah. Hey, yeah. What’s your screen name again?

Nick Burns: No, no, no.. I can’t remember. What is it?
Parker: [ low ] “Sexyman 48”.
Nick Burns: [ laughs ] What?
Parker: “Sexyman 48”!
Rhonda: Okay, see you later, “Sexyman”![ Parker exits ]
Nick Burns: That guy’s a real geek! He gives us computertechnicians a bad name, you know?
Rhonda: You know, that worm probably lives in his mom’s basement!
Nick Burns: [ nervous ] Hey, cut the guy some slack. Rent’s high. Rent’s high.Rent’s high.
Rhonda: Nick, I know that you live with your mom.. but I like you..and I also like the way you make fun of people who know less than you doabout computers. I think it’s.. sexy.
Nick Burns: You do? I was thinking, maybe you could come over to myMom’s crib later on.. we could play Playstation 2, or something.. look atsome games..[ they awkwardly lean closer for a kiss, until one of their beepers go off -they both check their collection of beepers to see whose it is ]
Rhonda: Oh, damn!
Nick Burns: You?
Rhonda: It’s me. It’s those idiots in Marketing. They probablyneed grief counseling because Pets.com went under. I gotta go. [ starts towalk away ] I thought I was going to get my first kiss..
Nick Burns: Me, too..[ she leans up to kiss him, both of them trembling, then she steps away ]
