(aka Fight Me)
(GEORGE stops TINY who is carrying files through the office)
GEORGE: Fight me.
TINY: I don't want to...
(GEORGE punches TINY)
TINY: Ow! What did you do that for?
more where that came from...
(GEORGE tries several more punches as TINY uses some folders and papers as a shield)
TINY: Cut it out!
GEORGE: Bet you're not so tough without your shield, Captain America.
(GEORGE slaps down folders, TINY yelps and GEORGE tries a few more punches)
TINY: Have you gone crazy?
GEORGE: Something like that.
TINY: I won't fight you.
GEORGE: Then I win.
GEORGE: I win.
TINY: I guess so.
GEORGE: (yells) Tell me I win.
TINY: Fine, you win.
(GEORGE punches him)
TINY: You win!
GEORGE: That's right. I am the alpha dog, baby!
(GEORGE does a chest pump against TINY who stumbles back)
TINY: What is with you, man?
(GEORGE grabs TINY in a headlock)
GEORGE: See her over there?
GEORGE: That her name? Yeah the new one. Yolanda... so hot.
TINY: She's why you're acting like an idiot?
(GEORGE stops headlock)
GEORGE: Yup... I want to impress her.
(GEORGE lets TINY out of headlock)
TINY: Great... Glad I could help.
GEORGE: She saw the whole thing. They're laughing. They think I am awesome. Now for the kill.
GEORGE: Not you... Her. Gonna seal the deal.
(GEORGE exits. TINY tries to fix himself up and gather papers. GEORGE returns and holds out a piece of paper)
TINY: What's this?
number. She wants me to give it to you.
(cont.): She thought you were cute.
(GEORGE walks off in defeat)
GEORGE (cont.): Everyone roots for underdog.
TINY looks at number happily and does a cute little wave.
