Learn how to behave yourself at a formal event, or at least how to talk about behaving badly in this episode. Slow dialog: 1:18 Explanations: 2:52 Fast dialog: 12:53 Rodney: Ha-ha! Did you hear what I said? Funny, right? Samantha: Behave yourself! This is a serious and solemn occasion, not a time for levity. Rodney: Loosen up. We have to endure two hours of this ceremony. Samantha: It’s indecent the way you’re behaving. Don’t you have any sense of decorum? Rodney: Lighten up. You’re such a stick-in-the-mud. There’s nothing unseemly about cracking a few jokes when everybody here is taking themselves too seriously. Samantha: Your problem is that you have no sense of dignity. Don’t you realize that your stupid jokes cheapen the occasion? You’re a disgrace. Rodney: Don’t get all huffy. All right, if you won’t join in, I’ll try to be serious. Samantha: That’s better. Rodney: I would seriously like a drink. Bartender! Samantha: [Groans] Script by Dr. Lucy Tse
