October 24th, 2014

Episode 146 of 462 episodes

There’s a difference between being a fan of someone famous and being a complete lunatic. Learn more in this episode. Slow dialog: 2:27 Explanations: 3:35 Fast dialog: 16:47 Marcel: What is this on your wall? Fiona: It’s my tribute to Del Gordon, my favorite player. Marcel: This isn’t a tribute. It’s a shrine! Fiona: It’s not a shrine. I just have a few pictures of him taped on my wall. Marcel: You have poster-size pictures of him covering three walls of your room. This goes beyond being a fan. You’re obsessed with him. Fiona: No, I’m not obsessed. I admit that I’m a little infatuated with him, but it’s a healthy kind of adulation. Marcel: You’ve definitely gotten carried away. Fiona: Just a little. I’m devoted to watching him play in every game and I try to find out as much as I can about him, but it’s because I admire him. It’s not like I’m stalking him or something. Marcel: Then why do you have all of this equipment? Fiona: That’s in case there’s a sighting of him in this city. Marcel: A sighting? Fiona: Yes, there’s a network of fans that keeps tabs on him and if I learn that he’s in town, I can try to get a photo with him. Marcel: And what are those handcuffs for? Fiona: I only have those in case he doesn’t cooperate. Marcel: You’re right. Your infatuation is completely healthy! Script by Dr. Lucy Tse
