EXHIBIT A: DUGAN'S

PLUG: I was curious about the sign outside that says, "World famous chicken wings."

COUNTER: Yeah, yeah, yeah.

PLUG: So where in world are you famous at?

COUNTER: Buffalo. Buffalo, New York. I'm from Buffalo. That's where they come from. I'm from Buffalo.

PLUG: Oh.

COUNTER: Buffalo, New York.

PLUG: Oh. So your wings aren't world famous. You're saying that chicken wings in general are world famous.

COUNTER: That's where chickens come from. I mean, that's where they got the name from.

PLUG: Oh.

COUNTER: It's a city in New York. Buffalo, New York.
