Thayer: Ouch.

Ben: Huh?

Thayer: Yeah. Hey, don't feel bad. If I had a nickel for every time I got in a fist fight during a chick flick1, whoo!

Ben: Uh-huh, right. It really wasn't that bad.

Thayer: Really?

Ben: No. I mean, the getting punched in the face part sucked, right?

Thayer: Well...

Ben: But the getting taken care of after the punch--it was nice.

Thayer: All right! Florence Nightingale syndrome2, yeah. You want me to tape the game for you tonight?

Ben: No need, my friend. I'll be watching the Knicks from the comfort of my own home this evening.

Thayer: How'd you swing that?

Ben: Oh, yeah. What's good to grill3?

Thayer: No.

Ben: Heavyweight.

Thayer: You're making the lamb.

Ben: Voilà. A woman loves a man who can cook, yeah?

Thayer: Bringing out the big guns.

Ben: Let's go deep.

Thayer: I like it.

Andie: Why do they always forget my bacon?

Jeannie: I can't believe you got that guy knocked out.

Andie: Only for a few seconds. He was the most adorable, unconscious man ever. Mm-hmm.

Michelle: Are you dating him, or are you contemplating4 adoption5?

Andie’s boss: Andie, I am loving your notes on this piece.

Andie: Thank you, Lana.

Andie’s boss: When are you seeing him again?

Andie: Tonight. He's invited me over for dinner.

Andie’s boss: Marvelous. I've got a feeling about this one.

Andie: Thanks, Lana.

Michelle: I hate it when she pops her head in like that.

Andie: I never noticed it.

Andie’s boss: Ahem! I heard that. And Andie, tonight, take smaller bites.

Michelle: Oh, my God!

Jeannie: Disgusting. I can barely eat over here.

Ben: Come on in. Door's open.

Andie: Hi.

Ben: Hey, there. I hope you brought your appetite, girl.

Andie: Whew.

Ben: We got a feast tonight.

Andie: Hmm.

Ben: Mmm...

Andie: Oh...Benny, isn't that sweet?

Ben: Hmm? Go on and pour yourself a glass of wine. We got diner in about five and tip-off in about eight.

Andie: Great. I'm starving.
