Transcript 41

CharlsNChrg: Good morning, Parson.

LordHamster: Well, gosh. It had been.

CharlsNChrg: I've got something for you to sign.

LordHamster: Oh, yey!

LordHamster: What is it? Field trip permission form? Your death warrant?

CharlsNChrg: [ Contract text - touch to expand ]

LordHamster: That's a really short contract, for you.

CharlsNChrg: It's atypically straightforward, yes.

LordHamster: So you just want to send us 75,000 more Shmuckers?

LordHamster: Why?

CharlsNChrg: No special reason.

LordHamster: Come on.

CharlsNChrg: Sign to receive the funds, Parson. That's all there is to it.

LordHamster: Right, but where's the catch? Are the secret terms written in invisible ink?

CharlsNChrg: It's your book. I doubt it does that.

CharlsNChrg: No terms or conditions apply other than those stated. Please sign.

LordHamster: I'm not signing this until I know why.

CharlsNChrg: That's a condition. It does not apply. Just sign.

LordHamster: Tell me why, first.

CharlsNChrg: Parson, I do not give away valuable information.

CharlsNChrg: But for you, I will over to sell you the real reason for the very low price of 80,000 Shmuckers.

CharlsNChrg: After you sign.

LordHamster: Cute.

LordHamster: Fine, I'll shut up and take your money.[1]

Parson A. Gotti

CharlsNChrg: Done. 75K transferred.

CharlsNChrg: Now. Do you want me to draw up a contract specifying 80,000 for the reason I sent you the 75?

LordHamster: ... I'll think about it. Go away.

Transcript 42

LordHamster: Hey.

CharlsNChrg: Good evening, Parson!

LordHamster: I'm calling your bluff. 80K to know why you sent us 75. Write up the contract.

CharlsNChrg: [ Contract text - touch to expand ]

LordHamster: That was disturbingly fast.

CharlsNChrg: I like to be prepared. Don't let it dissuade you.

LordHamster: I won't. It means you're definitely bluffing. It's like holding out your cards and saying "Come on, call me!"

Parson A. Gotti

CharlsNChrg: Thanks. You ready?

LordHamster: Spill.

CharlsNChrg: Deep in my heart of hearts, I truly, honestly, sincerely did it...

CharlsNChrg: ... to scam you out of 5K.

LordHamster: God dammit.

CharlsNChrg: And also, to evaluate you as a gambler. And to psychologically undermine you, leaving you vulnerable in our future dealings.

CharlsNChrg: Wasn't that fun?

CharlsNChrg: I used to do stuff like that to your boss all the time. Thought you'd be a bit smarter than him.

LordHamster: Right. Fine. Well played.

LordHamster: I have things to do now.

LordHamster: I'll leave the book open so you can gloat all night.

CharlsNChrg: Hold on. I'm having a little too much fun here.

CharlsNChrg: Let's do it again.

CharlsNChrg: [ Contract text - touch to expand ]

LordHamster: Same 75K?

CharlsNChrg: It is the same contract, to the letter. Sign, please.

Parson A. Gotti

CharlsNChrg: Wonderful.

CharlsNChrg: Now this time, if you want to know my reasons for sending you that money, the price will be 90,000 Shmuckers.

CharlsNChrg: Your move, Parson.

LordHamster: Yeah, I hate to let down the studio audience, but I'm keeping the money, Chuck.[2]
