Sam: I’m minding the dealership on that day.
Sam: I’m drinking coke at the back of the dealership on that day.
Sam: Mum says I have to be there. I really want to help out. I should help.
Sam: The motorbike is going to need petrol and I’ve almost finished fixing it up.
Fred: So are you coming?
Fred: Sally Michaels said she’s keen.
Sam: Says who?
Fred: Cass’ friend erm then and she was- you know.
Sam: How many?
Sam: It went through five people’s ears and then to you?
Fred: Maths has never been a thing maybe it was less…
Sam: More like maybe it was more.
Fred: But you have to come.
Sam: I told you I’m busy.
Fred: And after you’re done at the shop.
Sam: I have to…
Fred: Righto. But did you tell your parents yet?
Fred: The boxes aren’t a give away? Com’ on mate?
Fred: Are you going to tell anyone else?
Fred: Not even your family then? Not your brother Alex?
Fred: Did you buy the shovel?
Fred: The wire?
Fred: You bought the seeds didn’t you?
Fred: Damn it Sam tell me at least you didn’t buy the gnomes? I need to hear you say it.
Fred: Look, it’s crisp what you’re up to, but sooner or later it’s going to be showing.
Sam: I don’t know.
Fred: It’s a bit late for that. Listen, it’s a little on the organic side, couldn’t you have made it, I don’t know, differently?
Sam: It just sort of happened that way.
Fred: Mate, it’s who you are, you have to accept that it probably won’t change.
Sam: You’re right. I know you are, you’re absolutely … I can’t do it.
Fred: Sure you can, just show your parents and be like; “Ya see that, I grew that and if you want to see it grow up then you’d better deal with it.”
Sam: And then what?
Fred: You eat it. No other use for a pineapple I reckon – though we could probably Google a couple of options.
Fred: You just have to come out and say it; “Mum, Dad, I’m a gardener. Fruits, veggies, lavender, that’s the shit I’m into.”
Sam: I don’t know…
Fred: Your barking up the wrong tree if you think I’m gonna do it.
Fred: Fine. But after we’re going to the party and you know what, you’re wing-maning me on Sally.
Fred: Do you have eyes? You need to stop sniffing around dirt mate.
