My friend wants a guitar

RONI: My FRIEND here is in the market for a GUITAR. He wants a Fender Standard STRAT. That's IT. DON'T try an UPSELL.
GUITARPLANET CLERK: OK... is your friend all right?
RONI: My FRIEND is FINE. And he wants the brown SUNBURST model. Which he KNOWS retails at $430, so don't try and SCREW him.
GUITARPLANET CLERK: No problem. Lemme grab one, and we can ring you guys up.
RONI: My FRIEND remains WARY of this transaction!
DAN: What's HAPPENING? Can I look yet? I-is he playing hardball?! Tell him I'll pay $1000! $1500!
