Dialogue/Story

Larry: How’s it going? You having fun?

Anat: You know full well that this is out of my area of expertise, but I’m coping.

Larry: Is that what you’re doing? It looks to me like you’re making a mess of things.

Anat: Cut me some slack. I’ve only been working on this for a day and it’ll take me a little time to get up to speed.

Larry: You know what I think?

Anat: No and I don’t care.

Larry: I think you’re in over your head. Why don’t you step aside and let someone competent do the job?

Anat: No amount of heckling or trash talking will make me quit. I’m here for the long haul.

Larry: We’ll see about that. People more qualified than you are have packed it in after they got a taste of how things are done around here.

Anat: Talk all you like, but no amount of intimidation will get you what you want.

Larry: And you know what I want?

Anat: I think so. You’d like me to go away with my tail between my legs, but it’ll be a cold day in hell before that happens.
