  • - Reyka says I'm crazy, but if I was being Truman Show'd,

  • you'd tell me, right Siobhan?

  • - What? Raph, you're crazy.

  • - [Male Voice] Change the subject.

  • - I'm going to get a drink, you guys want anything?

  • Siobhan, Ralph?

  • - [Siobhan] I'm perfectly fine, thank you.

  • - No, no thanks.

  • - All righty.

  • - Hey, Siobhan, I notice that your friend

  • keeps calling me Ralph.

  • - Oh, really? I'm sorry.

  • - Do you think you could correct her for me?

  • - Ooh, why can't you do that?

  • - Well, I don't want to be rude, she's your friend.

  • - Well, I don't wanna be rude, she's my friend.

  • - Alright, maybe I can do it naturally.

  • - Back, dummies!

  • - Ralph, aren't you warm?

  • Don't you want to take off your jacket?

  • - You know what, Raph's pretty comfortable actually,

  • but that's classic Raph, right?

  • - Classic Raph.

  • - It's like my mom always used to tell me,

  • "Raph, your name is Raph,"

  • just in case there's any confusion, Raph."

  • - Jeez, sounds like your mom

  • thinks you're pretty dumb, Ralph.

  • - Did your mom name you after the painter?

  • - Yes, yes, that's right.

  • - Ralphael the painter? Cool.

  • - You know, most people think

  • I was named after the ninja turtle.

  • - Donatello.

  • - Donat- - I see it.

  • - I am not Donatello! Unbelievable.

  • - Um, sorry, dude, are you drawing me?

  • Because I'm actually really protective over my image.

  • - No, just doodling, (chuckles).

  • You guys ever spend the day just writing down your own name?

  • - No, never.

  • Which is kinda weird,

  • 'cause I'm kind of a freak for word games.

  • - Oh, right, yeah, Angela, ooh, here's a good one.

  • What is a four letter word that is short for Raphael?

  • - Ooh, Ralph.

  • - What? That's five letters.

  • We're looking for one, two, three, four.

  • - Dude, look.

  • Ra-lf

  • Ralf, it's your name, dummy.

  • - No it's not!

  • Don't you think it's weird

  • that you're the only one who calls me that?

  • - Am I the only person that calls you Ralph?

  • I feel so honored.

  • - That is actually really sweet.

  • - Not it's not, it's not-

  • - Raph - Ralph

  • - Raph - Rafff

  • - Ralph! - Raph!

  • - Ralph! - Rruff.

  • - Raph! - Ralph!

  • - Ruff, ruff, ruff. - Ralph, Ralph, Ralph, Ralph.

  • - It's Raph!

  • - Who are you talking to?

  • - Who are you talking to?

  • My name is not Ralph, it's Raph-i-el, or Ra-pha-el,

  • or Ra-phi-el, or Ra-pha-el, or Raf, or Raph, or Raif.

  • I don't get bummed by Raif!

  • Or Raphi, or Rapha, or Raphi, any of those would work,

  • just not Ralph.

  • - It's a nickname.

  • - It's not, though!

  • It's a totally different name unto itself.

  • - But it's a diminutive.

  • - What would it be short for?

  • It's a short name, but it isn't short for anything.

  • - Don't people call you Af?

  • - Oh, Reyka does call you Af.

  • - We are still in litigation!

- Reyka says I'm crazy, but if I was being Truman Show'd,
