    • Chuck: Listen, I've been meaning to ask, what do you think our cover should be, you know, moving forward...?
      Sarah: Well, I think we should keep it simple. So... How about friends?
      Chuck: Friends, huh? Yeah, that could work. I suppose I could fake being friends with someone like you.
      Sarah: And I don't find you completely repulsive, so...
      Chuck: Thanks!
      Sarah: So, yeah. Friends?
      Chuck: Yeah, yeah. Friends. (They shake hands awkwardly)

      Sarah: (teasing) I thought you said you had a perfect record.
      Chuck: Wow, this is getting entertainingly uncomfortable.
