PYBG:

Why do you wanna waste your money on racecar ’05?

RYAN:

Oh, I dunno, maybe it’s ‘cause it’s the only car on the track!

PYBG:

OK, you don’t gotta yell at me for asking questions! I like to question-tise!

RYAN:

… What? Dude, I think you’ve been around the car fumes way too long.

PYBG:

I’ve worked here so long that I know, only car on the track or not, it’s gonna lose! It’ll probably have a flat or the crazy fan will attack it…

RYAN:

… OK …

PYBG:

(Steps closer and says): Just between you and me, that driver over there (Points to one of the drivers) , I think they have an obsession with shirts just like yours so I’d watch out as well, they might try to steal it, you know?

RYAN:

OK, I’ll take your word for that. Um, I’m going to go over here (Points and walks away)

PYBG:

OK, (Let’s go of ‘05C) How much you gonna bet on that trash-car? (Shuffles deck)

‘05C:

Racecar ’05 isn’t trash! If it was then I’d adore it!

PYBG:

(Stops shuffling) And that one guy told me that I was insane from the fumes…

OK, so now I would like to place my bet if you don’t mind PLEASE!!!

PYBG:

OK SHUT UP!!! How much will it be then?

Hey, I would like some peanuts!

PD:

OK! (Walks right up to Ryan, tosses peanuts at Ryan’s face or stomach [NOT TO HARD!])

(Falls over) What the heck?

PD:

(Looks at Ryan strangely) O-o-o-o-o-o-o-K … Peanuts! Buy my peanuts! (Sighs) …You know… my shouting isn’t attracting customers… Maybe I should try shouting in French!

(In French): Achetez mes arachides! Allons! Allons!

(Walks away from RYAN)

RYAN:

(Gets back up and says angrily): I would like some peanuts, but this time hand them to me!

PD:

… Ha-hand them to you? What does this “Hand them to you” mean? (Scratches head)

RYAN:

It means you walk over to me and put the bag of peanuts in my hand instead of tossing them in my face OK?

PD:

(Shakes all over, picks up a bag, walks over to RYAN) I’m going to do this…

RYAN:

(Sticks hand out) You can do it, it’s so easy!

I like it. With a little work and the right actors, this could be very funny. Unfortunately I know little about comedy writing, so that's all I can tell you.
