Rich is sick and tired of Dana and JT always fighting. He does not know what to do. He does not see a way that he can make them both happy and feels like he has to choose between his girlfriend and his best friend. He makes a decision that they need to at least try to get a long because if they make him choose between them he will have a very tough decision to make because he does not want to lose either of them.
Scene: JT and Rich's apartment
JT: Rich what are we doing this weekend
Rich: I have plans with Dana
JT: why don't you want to hang out anymore?
Rich: that isn't true I already made plans sorry
Rich: I promise we will hang out soon
JT: whatever dude
SCENE: The Kitchen
Dana and JT are fighting as usual. Rich walks in.
Rich: what is going on?
Dana: JT is a moron
JT: I am not
Rich: will you two stop fighting for once
JT: She started it
Dana: that is so not true
Rich: stop, it does not matter who started it
Dana: (takes Rich's hand) let's go sweetie
JT: dude aren't we hanging out tonight
Rich: I can answer myself
Rich: JT I am sorry I already made plans with Dana
JT: come on dude we never hang out anymore
Rich: we will hang out next weekend
Dana: come on sweetie lets go

JT: man this is ridiculous I never see Rich anymore
Cody: dude, leave then guy alone he is in love
JT: PLEASE that's so not true
JT: because it's Dana, she …I mean….yuck
Cody: dude, you have issues
JT: No, I do not I just want my best friend back
Cody: well, good luck with that, just do not do anything stupid because you may end up hurting Rich and losing him as your best friend.
A couple hours later…
JT and Rich's apartment
JT is there and Rich enters
JT: Finally, your home
Rich: what are you my mother?
JT: haha …
Rich: what is your problem?
JT: we haven't hung out much since you started dated barky
Rich: first, do not call her that and second I see you every day so what's the big deal.
JT: no, that is not what I am talking about
(Dana walks in)
JT: don't you know how to knock
Rich: chill out dude the door was open
Dana: I am sorry I just wanted to say good night to my boyfriend is that a problem
JT: just hurry up barky
Dana: you are not the boss of me jackass
JT: well it is my apartment and if I do not want you in here then you cannot be in here.
Dana: you are not the only one that lives here
Rich: okay that is it. I cannot stand this constant bickering going on between you two. you need to come to some kind of agreement because the fighting has to stop.
JT: Why don't you just end it already so we can go back to the way it is supposed to be?
Rich: you can't be serious. Did you really just say that?
Dana: you are so selfish
Rich: that's it I am going to my parents' house for the night and when I return I want you two to at least tolerate each other because I do not want to have to choose between my best friend and girlfriend.
(he packs a bag and leaves)
