Comic transcript

TRANSCRIPTION COURTESY OF JOSEPH HOUK - [A hotel in Houston, exterior shot as CW and RO are talking] (CW) "What a night." (RO) "I know, right? Three of us blackout for a few minutes, you two get in a barroom brawl over… something…" (CW, as RO is "escorting" a very overhung MHO through the door of their room) "Yeah, we all just need a good night's sleep at this point." (RO) "Maggie's well ahead of us there. Let me get her to the bed real quick… [RO returns to talk to CW] That police officer seemed real nice. You said you knew him?" (CW, eyes rolled) "We… used to work together, yes. [turning serious toward RO] Look, I don't know how this is gonna all play out between Maggie and me. But I hope that, no matter what happens, you won't think of me as anything but a good friend." [A pause as they look at each other, and then] (RO, toothy grin like a certain OU grad back in 151) "Boomer Sooner?"
