MANDYDon’t get your hopes up, everyone. They cut back on bonuses this year.

EDWe kept the company afloat. We should get more. (They open their envelopes.) So, what’d everybody get?
TYRELLA fifty-dollar bill.
MANDY AND EDOoh. Ouch. That hurts, etc.
ED (looks in envelope)Don’t feel bad. All I got was a two dollar bill and someone wrote “Happy Birthday, Billy” on it in ballpoint pen.
MANDY AND EDThat’s pretty bad,Ed. Yikes, etc.
MANDY (looks in envelope)Well, you all made out better than me. All I got was a free month of Netflix. It sucks being the CEO.
