The Bullpen Season 2 Episode 2: The New Bench

Kurt: long-term reliever
Lorenzo: middle-relief pitcher
Jason: bullpen coach
Robert: 8th inning/setup pitcher
Bryan: closer
Eli: left-handed specialist
All: benchwarmer

Lorenzo: Would you look at that, a brand new bench.
Eli: No one deserves it more than us.
Robert: We sure do a lot of sitting during these games.
Bryan: What are we waiting for, let's try it out!
Eli (after sitting on it): It sucks.
Jason: What do you mean it sucks, the team just spent money getting us that bench.
Eli: Clearly they don't care enough about us to get us a comfortable bench, because this one is just as bad as the old one!
Jason: There's a seat heater.
Bryan: Wow that feels good! What are you talking about Eli?
Eli: I didn't know there was a seat heater. This changes everything!
Jason: It's supposed to light up in the dark too.
Lorenzo: Cool! Let's try it!
*Lorenzo sets the bench's setting to light blue.*
Lorenzo: Look everyone, our new bench is the same color as my favorite cotton candy flavor!
*Crowd starts booing.*
Lorenzo: Wow, team must be doing awful today.
Robert: You're not watching?
Lorenzo: No, are you?
Robert: Never.
Bryan: Um...was this ball here before?
Eli: We banned baseballs from the Bullpen so whoever did this better speak up.
Jason: Did this ever go by me? Not that I think it's a bad idea though.
Lorenzo: Hey, look over the wall, this dude looks hurt! Wonder if he's one of our own?
Kurt: Lorenzo you idiot, he probably crashed into the wall because he was blinded by the bench's light!
Lorenzo: So who scored?
Kurt: It's a home game and they're booing so, probably not us.
Lorenzo: Does that mean anything for my chances of pitching today?
Jason: Nope.
Lorenzo: All set then.
Eli: OK, he's getting up now, he's fine.
Jason: Why's the crowd still booing then?
Lorenzo: I can try changing the color of the bench to bright yellow.
*Crowd boos louder.*
Eli: That didn't work. What do we do now Jason?
Bryan: Where'd he go?
Kurt: I think he bailed.
Robert: Who's thinking of doing the same?
Bryan: Me, we can fool around with the bench tomorrow.
Eli: What if we need to pitch?
Bryan: Good want to stay here just in case?
Eli: Whatever.
Bryan: Don't forget to shut the bench off when you're done.
Eli: Uh huh. At least I have the game ball.
