REILLY: (leaning forward) You know, George…
REILLY: The ocean called. They’re running outta shrimp.
Everyone around the table laughs. Except for George, who looks triumphant. He swallows, and uses a napkin to clean his fingers.
GEORGE: (standing) Oh yeah, Reilly? (smugly) Well, the jerk store called. They’re running outta you.
REILLY: (unperturbed) What’s the difference? You’re their all-time best seller!
Reilly and everyone else laughs even more than they did before. George looks angry and frustrated, even on the verge of tears for a second, then something occurs to him.
GEORGE: Yeah? Well, I had sex with your wife.
George looks round, smiling arrogantly, expecting laughter. But there is a deep, uncomfortable, silence. Reilly, looks stony-faced. McAdam stands and leans over to speak in George’s ear.
MCADAM: His wife is in a coma.
