Fly: Hey, I’m back from the store…what are you doing?
Ginger: I’m waiting for Ruby to admit we can just play Bananagrams, but Ruby is enacting her right to practice futility.
Ruby: I’m trying to find a game we can play.
Fly: All of us, or just the two of you?
Ginger: Originally, the two of us, but hey – now you’re home, so…Fly? Wanna help me convince Ruby to play Bananagrams?
Fly: We play that a lot, Ginger…
Ruby: That’s what I told her!
Ginger: And then I suggested Tic Tac Toe.
Ruby: And I said we could do better than Tic Tac Toe.
Ginger: But we really can’t, because Tic Tac Toe is the only game that can avert World War Three.
Fly: According to War Games.
Ruby: Don’t encourage her.
Fly: What game did you suggest?
Fly: Oh, that’s a fun game…
Ruby: Until you play against Ginger.
Ginger: Hey! I am honest about….my habits.
Fly: What habits?
Ruby: Have you ever played Battleship?
Ruby: Against Ginger?
Fly: No. Why?
Ginger: Boats MOVE, Ruby. They don’t stay in one place when someone is firing torpedoes at them!
Fly: Got it – never play Battleship against someone who moves her ships.
Ruby: Y’know how in Stratego, you can set bombs?
Fly: …bombs don’t move, Ginger.
Ginger: Okay, sure, but in Labyrinth, they can walk.
Ruby: For the hundredth time, Ginger, fantasy films do not a strategy make!
Ginger: For the hundredth and one-th time, Ruby, PROVE IT.
Fly: Hundred and first time.
Ruby: That’s not helping…she’s doing that on purpose to distract us.
Fly: Right. Sorry. The bombs in Labyrinth had tiny feet and legs.
Ginger: So do the bombs in Stratego!
Ruby: I TOOK THE MAGIC MARKER AWAY FROM YOU!
Ginger: IT WAS A LITTLE LATE, RUBY!
Fly: …the bombs in our Stratego game have legs and feet on them now, don’t they?
Ruby: How’d ya guess?
Fly: If you’re so inclined to draw, we can play Pictionary.
Fly: What? Why?
Ginger: I love Pictionary! Who’s on my team?
Ruby: OH! YES! I’m on Ginger’s team!
Fly: …on second thought, and upon viewing the tiny feet and legs on the bombs – sorry, does this bomb have an ankle tattoo of a peace sign?
Ginger: Obviously one of the bombs has to be a pacifist.
Fly: We’re not playing Pictionary. Unless money is on the line. And you’re our ringer. Against another couple.
Ruby: I told you he’d say that.
Ginger: I guess we’re back to playing Bananagrams.
Fly: We have a closet full of games. I’m sure we can find something to play that Ginger cannot crack the absurd logic on how her version of cheating is not….Bananagrams?
Ruby: WE HAVE A CLOSET FULL OF GAMES.
Ginger: And I have a strategy for each and every one of them.
Ruby: …waiting until I go to the bathroom and then shifting the board so I’m losing is not a strategy.
Ginger: Not when your sister tries it. She’s like an amateur. There’s a technique that can only be honed and perfected by years of siblings with an overwhelming obsession to find the one game I cannot cheat while playing.
Fly: How big was the celebration when Bananagrams was finally placed into your hands?
Ginger: There was great rejoicing. Mostly from Mom…
Ruby: …Settlers of Catan!
Ginger: Yeah, I’ve been practicing a disappearing coin trick and I want to see if it works on those tiles…
Ruby: Is Tic Tac Toe still an option?
