Dan: What you were saying is you're a bug wuss who wants to get out of his date tomorrow night.
Casey: I don't believe I was saying that.
Dan: I believe you were.
Casey: And it's not a date.

Dan: OK, but just a second.
Casey: I really don't wanna go.

Jeremy: These are all things that I know.
Natalie: Do you know you owe me five dollars?
Jeremy: [holding out the forlorn hope] Trade deadline's midnight!
Natalie: I'm gonna want a crisp five dollar bill, not some raggedy-assed thing from the newstand...
