If at first you don’t succeed, try, try again! Learn how in this episode. Slow dialog: 1:23 Explanations: 3:24 Fast dialog: 16:10 Carl: Come on, let’s go. I have $500 burning a hole in my pocket. Shelly: Where are we going? Carl: We’re going to the track. I have a tip on a sure thing for one of this afternoon’s races. This is exactly what I need after last week’s setback. Shelly: You mean after losing all of your money last week. Carl: Right, but all I need to do is to get that monkey off my back and then I’ll have a reversal of fortune. Winning big this afternoon will be the start of a new winning streak. Shelly: Maybe what happened last week is really a sign of things to come. Maybe it was the start of a losing streak. Carl: Don’t jinx me with that kind of negativity. I’ve always believed that when you meet with a setback, come back with all you’ve got. Shelly: Does that mean what I think it means? Carl: Yes, that’s right. I’m plunking down all $500 on that race. I can’t lose. Shelly: But what if – Carl: Don’t say another word. When I win and get back in my stride, you can say, “Congratulations!” Script by Dr. Lucy Tse
In a time where we're all threatened by a rhetoric of hate from the people in power; A Gay And A NonGay challenges many of our differences head on and promises that no matter who you are, or what you're into (Bruce Springsteen or Britney), love is love and gay and nongays can be friends.
