Frank
What was that?
*Sam enters the back room*
Sam
What was what?
Frank
I saw something, like a monster
Sam
Frank, I think you're imaging things, there's nothing there. I know why you're imaging things, because you haven't gotten enough sleep
Frank
 I don't need any sleep
Sam
Yes, you do. Anyways how come you haven't been sleeping lately?
Frank
Because of the stress. A lot of things are happening in my life, Boss wants me to work extra shifts and I have to take care of my kids. Ever since Tania passed away my life has become so stressful

At least try to get some sleep

Never, it's not easy ok? I tried going to bar and that helps, but I get really drunk and hungover after

Well I need to go, see you later

Boss, we need you

I'll deal with you later
