Ryan: Ah, here we are. What dya of the hotel?
Alex: Ah man. Just looking at it from the outside, this hotel is sweet. [Really?] You're the man. An outdoor swimming pool, an awesome of the beach [We're close, somewhere.], and free continental breakfasts [Yeah, I think it was in there.].
Ryan: Hmm. That's not our hotel. Uh, it's the one next door.
Alex: What? Wh. . .? That place? [Yeah.] You honestly that place? [Um-hum.] You've got to be joking. I mean, man, that place looks like it's been condemned for years. [Just a few.] Uh, please, please. Just tell me you're my leg.
Ryan: Nope!
Alex: This isn't happening to me. I mean how dya come such a dump?
Alex: Easy. My uncle's best friend's second cousin said his grandfather stayed here once during the War, I guess back in the 1940s, [Ah, man.] so I went online, found the place listed under accommodations [Oh.] in a search engine, and then the hotel.
Ryan: I'm speechless. Un . . . now . . . So, now that we've arrived at the five-star Palace Hotel (You mean, uh, the Purple Flamingo.) Ah . . wha . . . Well, what are you in the for this afternoon?
Ryan: Well, to be honest, I just want to take a in the green pool (if it's even open), lounge around until the evening, and then catch something on TV after that. I think it's black and white. What dya think?
Alex: Ah, man, that idea.
