Bairrada Churrasqueira, College Street
It was shortly before Eva left the country and we moved out of the apartment ...
BLAMB: See this shirt? This shirt I'm wearing right now?
MARIA: It's a fukkin' grey shirt.
BLAMB: I used to have pyjamas just like this shirt. Damn I miss those pyjamas. But that was ten years ago ...
MARIA: What? You're mourning your fukkin' pyjamas? You're mourning your pyjamas ten years later? Did you have a pyjama funeral for them when they died?
BLAMB: They were great pjs ...
MARIA: Did they get buried or cremated? Maybe you should have a seance to get back in touch with them.
EVA: Amber should buy you some new pyjamas.
AMBER: I did. He keeps repeating this story about those grey pyjamas.
MARIA: What if you went back in time and found those pyjamas again and realized that you hate them?
JENN: Maybe it's not the pyjamas you miss. Maybe you miss that time of your life.
BLAMB: Nope, its the pyjamas.
MARIA: They have a fukkin' internet now and you can go online and find any pyjamas you want. I bet you could find places that tailor pyjamas for you. Don't get hung up on a fukkin' cheap pair of pyjamas you bought at The Bay when you still had hair.
EVA: Pre 9/11 pyjamas?
BLAMB: I was wearing them on 9/11.
JENN: Everyone remembers what they were wearing on 9/11.
BLAMB: That's right, grey pyjamas.
MARIA: You know what would suck?
MARIA: Being naked on 9/11.
EVA: Here. Find some new pyjamas.
BLAMB: Is this an ipod or an iphone?
EVA: What do you think?
BLAMB: I think it's a generic "i"-branded device.
MARIA: Remember when computers used to be gigantic, man?
BLAMB: You know, my favourite computer, from way back in the 80s was the size of a ...
EVA: A suitcase?
MARIA: A barn?
BLAMB: Well, it was a C64, so it was the size of a keyboard.
JENN: Funny, people used to write sentimental songs about old movies but they don't write them about old computers.
BLAMB: Call Ian Thomas.
MARIA: Or Vangelis.
EVA: Who the hell is Ian Thomas?
BLAMB: Ian Thomas is a famous singer. How could you not know who Ian Thomas is. I think he's also Heather Thomas' brother.
AMBER: Hey, something's wrong.
BLAMB: What time is it? We have to get home in time for 'The Fall Guy'.
MARIA: He's in some kind of daze.
BLAMB: Duuuuhhhh ...
EVA: Wait a minute ... Brett, what year is it?
BLAMB: It's 1982!
EVA: He accidentally activated the hypnotism app on the i-device. He thinks he's gone back into the past!
MARIA: But he's gone too far!
BLAMB: Did you guys watch 'Real People' this week?
JENN: Who cares ... ask him about his pyjamas!
AMBER: Brett, you've gone too far. You were only supposed to go back to 2001.
MARIA: What kind of pyjamas are there with you?
BLAMB: Oh no .. oh no ... the pyjamas here are terrible!
EVA: Leave the 80s ... come forward in time!
MARIA: Yeah, but don't go to like ... the year 3000 or something like that.
EVA: Are you there?
BLAMB: I'm in the year 3000. I'm a guest at the Ryugyong Hotel. I think someone just set off an atomic bomb ...
MARIA: Ok, whatever. What about the fukking pyjamas? How are those?
BLAMB: Well ....
Everyone leans forward.
BLAMB: They're perfect!
