Allie (mid to late 20's)
Allie is shy… timid even. But she knows how to joke around. If you get to know her, you know that she can have a really good conversation. And…. She’s never had a smore. CRAZY!
Line 1: Um, no? I don’t know. I just don’t know a lot of Lizzie’s coworkers and there’s people who I thought would be here but didn’t show. Even a gathering on the beach isn’t’ that great when everyone else seems to already know each other.
Line 2: They just seem... terribly messy. Don’t you think? I mean, I like the pieces separately on their own. Can’t turn down a nice piece of chocolate and nibbling through graham crackers every now and then works as a snack. But smooshed together? Doesn’t really seem that appealing - what? Did I say something funny?
Line 3: No, I didn’t mind. She was nice and maybe a bit forward at first but you know me, I never get out of my shell. I’m surprised you managed to convince me to go in the first place.
Katie (mid to late 20's)
Katie likes life. You would be surprised to see her in a bad mood. She always includes everyone whether it’s at work, or just a social gathering on a beach.
Line 1: I Sort of work with Lizzie. Different departments but we’ll grab coffee here and there. We mostly like complaining about everyone else.
Line 2: No no. Lizzie’s mentioned you. She said you’d be the quiet one. Don’t take it the wrong way. She speaks well of you. Definitely one of the lucky ones. I’m Katie by the way.
Lizzie (mid to late 20's)
Lizzie is confident, a good friend. You can definitely confide in her and she’s always going to listen.
Line 1: Actually I don’t. I’ve been out since before we met and that fact never phased you. So what’s the problem? Did you like talking to her? I know it was awkward at first but my impression is that you didn’t mind meeting her.
Line 2: Well don’t hinge your happiness on one girl either. If you’re ready to accept yourself, don’t do it because you have a crush. Do it because you’re ready to accept the fact that you’re bi, and that you don’t feel the need to hide it anymore, at least from yourself.
Line 3: Well that we can work on. I just want to see you happy. And know that I’m here for you.
Rachel (mid to late 20's)
Rachel is a total go-getter. Her mind is always on work, and how it can be improved. Even if it takes over lunch break and annoys everyone else.
Line 1: Boss wants us to keep our minds sharp for the next round of edits.
Line 2: We are at war! It’s called the "culture war." Twitter, YouTube, Snapchat. It’s making the world dumb and we at the Medium-Western dictionary are the last line of defense.
Line 3: Suit yourself, but President Orange Glo might start another word war before you finish that sandwich.
Leonard gets annoyed sometimes. But don’t we all? He’s all for working hard, but when it comes to lunch, he just wants to eat!
Line 1 (frustrated): You know what-- it wouldn’t hurt to go one day and not do this stuff at the table.
Line 2: Holy balls, our Cucktard own got over four hundred retweets.
Line 3:Rachel. You make it sound like we’re at war or something.
Miguel is a highly energetic, but also very thoughtful. He thinks before he speaks, and goes through options in his head before executing them.
Line 1: Ah! These notifications never stop.
Line 2: Yeah, I’m not sure about "trolling." Boss wants us to be "paragons of public relations." Whatever that means.
Line 3: Okay, but you’re asking for it... (Reading a tweet) "At r-1-g-h-t frog jump" says "You cucktard efties think you know words. But hashtag my president has the best ones. Hashtag MAGA."
