(VERY) Rough translation of “Slutt å meld meg” (Stop texting me)
THERE WILL BE SOME MISTAKES HERE, JUST A HEADS UP!
Mahdi: You kind of get into the mood, y’know.
Jonas: No, you don’t. ‘Cause it’s like ten people in a huge apartment and then you play the russ tunes to get the mood up.
Magnus: Russ tunes are fucking pumped!
Mahdi: ..when you don’t find the right mood and like “Yeah, let’s put on a russ tune”.
Magnus: It works at the parties I’m at. The girls are crazy.
Jonas: But it’s so often it dosen’t fit to play russ tunes where people play russ tunes! You get that, right?
Magnus: Okay, what do you wanna listen to then? What you wanna listen to?
Jonas: I dunno, I’m keen to hear some old school hip hop, some 90’s shit.
Mahdi: Nate Dogg
Jonas: Yeah, Nate Dogg!
Mahdi: He’s awesome.
Magnus: Who’s Nate Dogg?
Jonas: Who’s Nate Dogg??
Mahdi: Are you serious? You know who Snoop Dogg is?
Magnus: I know who Snoop Dogg is!
Magnus and Mahdi continue to talk.
Jonas: What’s up, man?
Isak: Nothing, I guess.
Jonas: Nothing? Is there anything new with that guy Even, or what?
Isak: Uh, no.. Or, I got a new drawing.
Jonas: A new draw-…What’s his deal?
Isak: I dunno.. He’s, well, all over the place.
Magnus: What’re you talking about? Are you talking about Even?
Mahdi: What’s really going on between you two?
Isak: Nothing’s happening. He’s got a girl.
Magnus: Oh, so he’s also pansexual?
Isak: I don’t know.
Magnus: Just one thing, I’ve been thinking about a little bit, and sorry if it’s rude or anything, but..gays when they have sex. Who’s the man and who’s the woman?
Isak: Funny you should ask, ‘cause I was just gonna ask you the same about when you have sex, who is the man and who is the woman? But then I remembered you don’t have sex!
Jonas: Fuck..! Wow, where did that come from..
Magnus: Was it such a bad question? I was seriously wondering, but okay…
Jonas: Alright, okay, but honestly…I feel like you’re letting him play you, a little bit.
Isak: Playing me?
Jonas: Like, he keeps you going, then nothing happens, and he’s still together with that chick.
Isak: Yeah…but it’s not like I can control what he does.
Jonas: But you can! If you like, completely straight up, you send him a text saying “Hey dude, quit this shit!”
Isak: “Yo, dude, quit this shit”…Nah, that’s not me.
Jonas: Yeah. Or, maybe not, but…like… “Text me-..stop texting me, call me when you’ve broken up with your girlfriend”. Straight up. That’s what works!
Mahdi: And then if he really is interested he’s gotta get stressed. We’ve all been there.
Jonas: Right! Like, if you’ve got something going on with a girl, or you just wanna fool around with her, and you’re not keen on like a relationship with her or anything, but then if she texts you “What’s happening? Let’s meet. I’m sick and tired of you not being serious.” Then it becomes serious immediately!
Mahdi: Yeah, and like, you’re getting a slight shock.
Jonas: Exactly. You don’t mess with her no more after that.
Magnus: It’s worse when she doesn’t answer when you text. When you see she’s seen your text like an hour ago.
(Jonas, Magnus, and Mahdi continue to talk in the background)
Isak’s text to Even:
Hi, thanks for the drawing, but if you’re not really interested in something more you can just give it a rest. Call me when you’ve broken up with your girlfriend.
Isak: I did it. Sent the message.
Jonas: No?! Not half bad!
All the boys: Cheers!
Jonas: That surprised me.
Isak receives a text from Even:
What are you doing now? Can we talk?
Magnus: Is it him??
Isak: He answered..! “What are you doing now, can we talk?”
Isak: What do I answer??
Magnus: Call him.
Jonas: No! Don’t call him. Write uh…”Chillin’ at home.”
Isak: “Chillin’ at home”?
Mahdi: Yeah, that’s good.
Isak: Chillin’ at home, uh….call me if-
Jonas: No! You want him to call but like, you have to write it in a way that you…don’t want it? You get it? So just write “Chillin’ at home” and then done. Chillin’ at home.
Isak: Chillin’ at home. Okay. “Chillin’ at home” emoji?
Jonas: No..! Chillin’ at home, done. Zero feelings. Totally..straight up.
Jonas: He’s gonna call.
Magnus: Check if there’s a bubble, if he’s writing.
Isak: No bubble.. He’s not gonna answer. It’s just the way he is.
Mahdi: It might be that he’s at a place where he’s unable to talk right now, like..
Magnus: The beer tasted like shit today.
Jonas: Which one are you drinking?
Magnus: Tuborg. Bottled. It tasted like..plastic or something.
Jonas: Is it…has it, is the yeast gone all out, or what?
Jonas: Oh! Fuck. A person I know, who knows a person, who knows a person, told me that someone had put yeast inside an apple juice carton in their school locker, to make beer?
Mahdi: At school?
Jonas: Yes. Isn’t that weird?
Magnus: Huh?! Then it would have stunk like crazy at school.
Jonas: Yeah, they said so. It smelled like shit.
Mahdi: He probably wanted to party at school.
Magnus: has to be completely…do you know him?
Mahdi: Friend of a friend, as he said..
Jonas: Yeah. But..
Mahdi: What’s up, did you invite someone?
Isak: No, you’re the only friends I’ve got.
Isak: Probably just Eskild. He forgets his keys every fucking…
Isak: It’s Even.
Jonas: Huh?! HUH?? Seriously, is he here?
Isak: I’m not fucking around, it’s him.
Magnus: It’s Even! Come on, we’ll go and meet Even, boys!
Magnus: What, why?
Isak: Seriously, I’m not fucking around. Out! Out, out, out, out, out!
Jonas: And where are we supposed to go?
Magnus: Why can’t we meet Even??
Isak: You can’t meet Even!! What the hell are you on about?!
Mahdi: Have you got my phone?
Isak: Your phone?! Why would I have your phone?!? Okay, do the drinks outside, then! You have a party to go to!
Magnus: But it’s fucking freezing!
(the boys arguing, Isak is LIT)
Jonas: But we’ll see each other!
Isak: No, you’re not gonna meet each other, you’ll take the back door!
Jonas: But our shoes? What about our shoes?
Isak: Yeah, I’ll get your shoes! Just go!
Magnus: Shoes? Shoes??
Mahdi: Isak, need my shoes now, buddy!
Jonas: Get them, for fuck’s sake!
someone: These aren’t even my shoes..!
Magnus: You took my shoe!
Jonas: Whatever, come on!
Mahdi: -most important is that we’re leaving!
Door shuts. Isak goes to open the front door.
