Ernie: Closing? Who said?

Ernie’s Wife: You did!

Ernie: I never said that!

Ernie’s Wife: You did, you mind-changing, schedule-forgetting fool!

Ernie: Well, tonight I wanted to stay open, you clock-watching, early-closing, lazy, non-working, back-talking —

Ernie’s Wife: [ gives in ] Okay, I’ll stay late!

Ernie: You late-staying, always-agreeing, butt-kissing —

Ernie’s Wife: [ slaps counter ] All I want to know is: when are we gonna close up and go?!

Ernie: — walking-out-of-my-sight, dunking-down-behind-the-damn-thing —

[ Ernie’s Wife pulls out a pistol and points it at him ]

Ernie: .38-caliber-pistol-shooting, pointing-at-me —

[ Ernie’s Wife fires the pistol. His body staggers downward, but he maintains the strength to continue. ]

Ernie: Husband-shooting, mess-making —

[ Ernie’s Wife fires the pistol a second time; Ernie barely flinches ]

Ernie: Two-time-shooting, neither-time-fatally-wounded —

[ Ernie’s Wife fires a final time, as he staggers onto the counter and finally surrenders ]

Ernie: Okay. Let’s close the store.

[ Ernie’s Wife locks up, as he looks around dazed ] [ fade ]
