Real friends talking about triggers and expectations, played by Spaniel Puppets. Transcript below:

FRONT OF HOUSE: Frank and Dick (with birthday hat)
talking by front door.
FRANK
So Dick, here we are, outside. That really bothered Lori.
DICK
It was my birthday cake, Frank.
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.
DICK
She doesn't like me anyway.
FRANK
Lori used to like you. But why should she, when you
act like you don't care?
DICK
Why should I? People are always getting in my way --
bugging me.
FRANK
You sound like your father -- the big critic who you
said complained and put you down.
DICK
That's not half the story. It was his way or no way.
He blew-up all the time.
FRANK
There's ways we want to be like our parents, but
not all their ways.
DICK
Man I sure don't want to imitate his nasty style,
not have real friends, and end up miserable.
FRANK
You mean not act like a king who's entitled to ...
DICK
What do you mean?
FRANK
Here I'll show you. Just do what I tell you.
DICK
Why?
FRANK
Don't make me mad. I'll get nasty.
DICK
I don't get this.
FRANK (Loudly)
Now you did it. (Jumping up & down)
Ah you're an ass. (Angry sound).
DICK
Oh, I get it -- you're acting mad cause I didn't go
along with you.

FRANK
That's the anger trigger -- of thinking people
should -- must -- do what you want, or you
punish them by acting bad.
DICK
I guess I get hot, angry if it's not what I expect.
FRANK
Yeah, how about cooling it. Then discuss your
expectations and views.
DICK
Maybe I should not should on people so much.

They look at each other.
