Sam is a disgusting man with disgusting qualities. He runs a fromagerie from his dressing gown pocket and throughout the short is always munching on cheese and other dirty products. He's not a well groomed or a well mannered man, with very little education he can sometimes be slower in a battle of whit. He has a larger frame, due to his obsessive eating. Although his dirty exterior he means well and is genuinely trying to help in the only way he can; by offering his dirty pocket meat.

Male, aged 25 to 50

John is a well dressed and mostly well groomed man. He has an awful temper and can quickly lose patience in a debate. He prides himself on his work and looks down on lesser people like Sam. John's world has just crashed down on him in the short; he has just lost his job, his pride and joy. Already his patience thin he must now take on Sam in a back and forth that will test even John's quick whit. Even if John thinks less of Sam deep down they are both equally as stupid and disgusting.

Anyone, aged 25 to 50
