Dave Nelson:
Okay, I'm not fine. I'm not fine.

Catherine Duke:
Ya sure? Because you seem fine.

Dave Nelson:
Well, you know, the old Dave-the old Dave would be fine. The well-meaning, even-tempered, easy-going Dave he'd-he'd be fine with his. But I'm not fine. And you know what? That Dave, that Dave, unfortunately, today is dead.

Catherine Duke:
[laughs] No, he's not.

Dave Nelson:
Oh, yes he is. Hear me well, as of today, a new Dave is born. A Dave who, for lack of a better phrase, is... pure evil.

Catherine Duke:
Pure evil?

Dave Nelson:
Pure. Evil.

Joe Garrelli:
[enters] Hey, Dave, can I borrow five bucks?

Dave Nelson:
Sure, Joe, my wallet's in my desk. [Joe leaves] Where was I?

Catherine Duke:
Um, pure evil.

Dave Nelson:
Pure. Evil. And by embodying pure evil, as I now do, in one short week, I will have my old job rightfully rebestowed upon me.

Catherine Duke:

Catherine Duke:
Pure evilness?

Dave Nelson:
Yeah. I'm still-still getting the hang of it.

Catherine Duke:
Yeah, well, don't you worry about it, I'm sure you'll get the hang of it.

Dave Nelson:
[smiles] Thanks.

Catherine Duke:
Look, Dave, why don't you get up and get me a soda? Thank you.

Dave Nelson:
[goes for it and then stops] No. [acts defiant]

Catherine Duke:
Ooo, Dave! That's a good start! Okay, go with it, go with it. C'mon more, more!

Dave Nelson:
Get your own damn soda.

Catherine Duke:
Yes, yes, yes! Alright, come on, come on.

Dave Nelson:
[tries for a moment] That's really all I've got right now.
