It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia: Sweet Dee Gets Deported

Below is an excerpt from my first completed spec script. If anyone from Sunny sees it, I will accept payment in the form of a signed script or poster. Read the complete script here.

CHARLIE AND FRANK'S APARTMENT. DAY. CHARLIE ENTERS. FRANK
IS SITTING ON THE COUCH, TALKING ON THE PHONE.
FRANK
And muchos grazzias to you, too.
Frank hangs up the phone.
CHARLIE
What's going on? You're talking
Spanish now?
FRANK
I found a new investment, I was
talking to my new employee.
CHARLIE
What kind of investment, dude?
FRANK
Tacos. Everyone loves tacos, and
Mexicans love making them. I
figured - why not get in on some
of that?
CHARLIE
Yeah, that's smart. So, like, a
Mexican guy is gonna come here and
make us tacos, or –
FRANK
No, no. Taco carts. I stopped for
a quick bite on my way home from
lunch and met this guy named
Pancho selling tacos. I loaned him
some money, and his kids are going
to start selling tacos in other
neighborhoods.
CHARLIE
You're going to have kids working
for you?
FRANK
They're forty years old. Adults,
working for their father's
business selling addictive,
unhealthy garbage. A couple of
losers.
CHARLIE
All this talk is making me hungry.
You wanna get something to eat?
