    • Theo: The community center? That's the opposite of romantic.

      (Theo and Andy enter)

      Maggie: So romantic.
      Theo: So cheesy.
      Miguel: That's what I said five times to Las Tres Amigas.

    • Maya: Miguel, look around the room. Do you notice something horribly wrong?
      Miguel: I'm standing here talking to you instead of playing hide-and-seek with Tito?
