MOLLY
Why do you spell your name like that?

BIERDE
Like how?

MOLLY
Well, if my name was pronounced BIRDY, I'd probably spell it like that to dispel confusion.

BIERDE
My name doesn't have to be pronounced BIRDY. Originally, I spelled my name B-I-E-R. Like German beer. And it was pronounced like beer too.

MOLLY
Why'd you change it?

BIERDE
The computer age doesn't always honor the bits and pieces of a full name. It's FIRST and LAST name; and sometimes suffixes.

MOLLY
People give you smack for having a first name like beer?

BIERDE
Yeh. You know it's just a variation of Pierre, right? And Pierre is the French version of Peter?

MOLLY
Yeah.

BIERDE
Because my last name has a preposition, it isn't part of the name. I added it to the end of my first name so the letter "d" wouldn't be capitalized.

MOLLY
Oh, like de GUZMAN, or de Jesus. I get it. That way the system doesn't capitalize the letter D and combine your last name with Jesus which would in turn result in the spelling of Jesus with a small letter J.


BIERDE is mesmerize how accurate MOLLY can be.

BIERDE
I told you this story before, haven't I?

MOLLY
Yeah, but we weren't high. I tend to remember stuff better when I'm high.

BIERDE
Is that a school thing?


MOLLY grins.

If you changed your computer name to BIERDE, the command prompt would resemble DEIRDRE's name on her puter whenever she used command prompt. Or Terminal.
