LORENZO walks into Lorenzo’s Kitchen with the entire Indianapolis Primitives’ bullpen plus their coach, MANNY. He sees all six young lawyers sitting at their usual table.

CHASE
The door was unlocked again.

LORENZO
I lost the key.

CHASE
Figured you would’ve found it by now.

LORENZO
I haven’t gotten around to looking yet. Any new developments?

ADAM
You have an interview with the sore throat guy today.

LORENZO
Why didn’t you tell me that?!

ADAM
We told you. Many times, actually. Just, don’t lose your temper like you did the last time.

FELIX laughs.

FELIX
Lorenzo lost his temper?! That just seems too good to be true.

REAGAN
It wasn’t good, it was a disaster.

LORENZO
I’m not great at interviews, or doing anything with professionalality.

MANNY
Is that a word?

ROBERT
I don’t think so.

MADISON
No, it’s a word, I just looked it up.

DEVIN
Seriously everyone? That definitely isn’t a word.

CHASE
Whatever. We don’t have time for this, we need to make sure Lorenzo is ready.

LORENZO
Hold on! I got the rest of the bullpen here, they’re going to give me a ceremony.

LINCOLN
Do I even want to know what this is about?

FELIX
No, you don’t.

ACE
I now pronounce Lorenzo co-bullpen captain! Congratulations!

LORENZO
That’s it? Isn’t there cotton candy?

REAGAN
There’s a lot in the back, if you didn’t eat it all yet.

LORENZO
Fine, I’ll get the cotton candy myself. I have something for you all back there anyways. Hold on a minute.

LORENZO walks to the kitchen and eats some cotton candy. He comes back with mugs for REAGAN, ADAM, CHASE, LINCOLN, MADISON, SAM, MANNY, HARRY, FELIX, ACE, DEVIN, and ROBERT.

LINCOLN
Those for us?

LORENZO
You bet they are! They all have your names on them.

Everyone thanks LORENZO, still confused as to why he bought the mugs for them.

LORENZO
I am honored to be the new co-bullpen captain, and bought these mugs for a completely unrelated reason.

CHASE
Here comes Sore Throat Guy.

ADAM
Crap, what’s his name again?

MADISON
Kyle.

KYLE walks into Lorenzo’s Kitchen.

KYLE
I’m looking for Lorenzo...oh, that must be him! Hey, I’m Kyle!

KYLE looks at FELIX and extends his hand.

FELIX
First, I’m not shaking your hand. Second, your mask is slipping down. Third, I’m not Lorenzo. Fourth, are you racist?

KYLE quickly walks away.

LORENZO
So Kyle, glad you can join us today. Can I start you off with something to drink?

KYLE
You don’t have a waiter?

LORENZO
We do, but he’s enjoying the bullpen bench at a baseball field. It’s air conditioned. He works there, by the way.

HARRY (walking in)
I work here too.

LORENZO
There you are! Harry, get this man some cherry juice.

KYLE
We gonna start the interview?

LORENZO
Yeah. So, what brought you to Lorenzo’s Kitchen on the night of the crime?

CHASE
Lorenzo! We agreed not to use that word!

KYLE (loudly)
I was eating some chicken fingers when I had to start yelling at some guy. I had a sore throat, but I also had a sore throat before.

KYLE clears his throat.

LORENZO
Is it possible your throat is sore because you talk really loud?

KYLE
It’s one hundred percent the reason.

LORENZO
Anything else you’d like to say?

KYLE
I would like to say that the food here is amazing. Really, it is. I would come back here any time if I lived in the area.

After a pause.

KYLE
That all you need?

LORENZO
That was great! Do you really mean it?

KYLE
Of course! Get me a hot dog and I’ll be on my way.

LORENZO makes KYLE a hot dog. KYLE eats it, pays, and leaves.

MADISON
That went well, Lorenzo.

LORENZO
Think I’ll get some more customers? Not counting all the online ones.

MADISON
I think you’ll do just fine.
