You don’t have to go home but you can’t stay here. Time to end the party in this episode. Slow dialog: 1:18 Explanations: 2:58 Fast dialog: 14:43 Gunther: I think this party has run its course and I’m ready to call it a night. Maria: But there are still a few stragglers who seem reluctant to leave. How do we politely tell them to go home? Gunther: I’ll just make an announcement. Maria: Wait! That seems kind of rude. Let me try a few hints. I’ll tell them that we’re out of drinks. Gunther: If you do that, one of those guys is liable to offer to make a beer run. That’s not going to do the trick. Maria: What if I go over there, yawn, and comment on the lateness of the hour? That should be obvious enough without being too rude. Gunther: Those people aren’t going to respond to subtlety. Let me handle this. Maria: What are you going to do? Gunther: I’m going to do what bars do at closing time. I’m turning up the lights and turning off the music. Maria: And if that doesn’t work? Gunther: I’m going to yell “lights out, people!” and mean it! Script by Dr. Lucy Tse
