Hey hey, let's start playing Motion Design Bingo. First one to get five in a row wins ... uh, something.
You forgot "should only take you a day or two"
Pretty sure I am winning this :\
You have “Oh, no we don’t have a budget” twice.
Maybe it’s a pun as in, “Oh no! We don’t have a budget!” like they are freaking out that they are broke as well as “oh, no no no no... we don’t have a budget” as if they know they do but want to keep the money to themselves and get some sweet sweet free work?
