FRONT OF HOUSE: Frank and Dick (with birthday hat)
talking by front door.
So Dick, here we are, outside. That really bothered Lori.
It was my birthday cake, Frank.
Lori took time to get a good looking one. Then
because you couldn't have more alcohol after acting
drunk, you put your fist in the cake.
She doesn't like me anyway.
Lori used to like you. But why should she, when you
act like you don't care?
Why should I? People are always getting in my way --
You sound like your father -- the big critic who you
said complained and put you down.
That's not half the story. It was his way or no way.
He blew-up all the time.
There's ways we want to be like our parents, but
not all their ways.
Man I sure don't want to imitate his nasty style,
not have real friends, and end up miserable.
You mean not act like a king who's entitled to ...
What do you mean?
Here I'll show you. Just do what I tell you.
Don't make me mad. I'll get nasty.
I don't get this.
Now you did it. (Jumping up & down)
Ah you're an ass. (Angry sound).
Oh, I get it -- you're acting mad cause I didn't go
along with you.
That's the anger trigger -- of thinking people
should -- must -- do what you want, or you
punish them by acting bad.
I guess I get hot, angry if it's not what I expect.
Yeah, how about cooling it. Then discuss your
expectations and views.
Maybe I should not should on people so much.
They look at each other.
