Multiple personalities clash.
The Split: Norman and Alfred
WC: 143

I don’t know if I can do this, Alfred.

Just stick to the script I wrote!

Are you sure?

Yes! I’m an adequate writer, Norman. More than adequate!

Okay, okay!

It's the only way. You know how you are when you ad-lib.

I’ll know what to say, Alfred.

No, you won’t. You never do. You'll blow the whole thing...again. And then what?

Gold would have been a better choice. Don’t you think?

Silver is fine. It's the diamond that counts.

I should have worn my lucky tie, the one with the purple stripes.

This tie is fine, Norman, or I wouldn’t have selected it. Pink is our color.

Are you sure?

Yes. And I'm grateful that one of us is, or we'd never get married. Finish your wine for courage. She’ll be here any minute.

Alfred, I don't know if I can do this.

You can! Just stick to the script.
