Dances With Chimps, Scene 4
Jun 15, 2006 - 08:03 AMLT. JOHN DUMBELL: Fore! (He hooks a golf ball into the nearest sand trap.)
CHEETOE THE TALKING CHIMP (tees up, seething under his breath): So, how are things going with that... girl?
DUMBELL: We seem to be reasonably compatible. (Cheetoe's drive slices right off the fairway.) In fact, she might turn out to be wife material. (Cheetoe throws a club at Dumbell, and starts chasing him.) Hey!
FLIPPING BIRD (subtitled, after Dumbell and Cheetoe are out of earshot): Keep on with the white man talk, if it pleases you. (His shot lands very close to the green.)
STANDS WITH A FART (also subtitled): I like to make the talk. (Her drive is spectacular, just inches from the hole.) It's helpful in generating new business connections out here on the links, too.
FLIPPING BIRD (still subtitled): You can say that again. I closed two big real estate deals after yesterday's round. Hope the interest rates stay low. (Dumbell sprints past the tee, just a few yards ahead of the livid Cheetoe.) What are those guys up to?
STANDS (subtitled yet again): Hard to tell. It could be a macho thing. Maybe male bonding? They love to slap each other's butt...
