Tapescript

Donald: May I have a word with you?

Ross: Of course, Donald.

D: We’ve been getting reports of some very angry behaviour on your part.

R: What?

D: Threatening letters, refusal to meet deadlines. Apparently, people now call you “mental”.

R: Yeah.

D: We want you to speak to a psychiatrist.

R: Oh, no. You don’t understand. This is so silly. This is all just because of a sandwich.

D: A sandwich?

R: You see my sister makes these amazing turkey sandwiches. Her secret is she puts an extra slice of gravy soaked bread in the middle, I call it the moist maker. Anyway, I put my sandwich in the fridge over here.

D: Oh, you know what?

R: What?

D: I’m sorry, I believe I ate that.

R: You ate my sandwich?

D: It was a simple mistake. It could happen to anyone.

R: Oh, really? Did you confuse it with your own turkey sandwich with a moist maker?

D: No.

R: Do you perhaps remember seeing a note on top of it?

D: There may have been a joke or a limerick of some kind.

R: That said it was my sandwich.

D: Now, now, calm down. Come look in my office some of it may still be in the trash.

R: What?

D: Well, It was quite large, I had to throw most of it away.

R: You, you, you, you threw my sandwich away. My sandwich, My sandwich!
