“Didn’t your mother teach you to excuse yourself when you burped and there were other folks there?”

PHILIP
“Maybe, what’s it to you?”

TONY
“Just checking. ”

PHILIP
“All right, she did.”

TONY
“So … ”

PHILIP
“So, excuuuse me.”

TONY
“Now that’s better.”

PHILIP
“Can we not discuss this anymore?”

TONY
“C’mon Phil, I’m just trying to help you with your manners.”

PHILIP
“Thank you for your help, Mr. Clemens.”

TONY
“Excuse me.”

PHILIP
“What?”

TONY
“I said ‘excuse me’.”

PHILIP
“Oh. Why?”

TONY
“Just burped, that’s all.”

PHILIP
“I didn’t hear it with all the traffic and everything.”

TONY
“Just wanted to be sure just in case, if you know what I mean.”
