Kate: I'm sure there's nothing I do that you'd find exciting. I don't open beer bottles with my toes, I don't sit around and count what's left of my teeth, hey, I don't even enjoy a good tractor pull. It's been a limited existence, but I've gotten used to it.

Doug: Life of the party, huh? Place must be crawling with guys.

Kate: As a matter of fact, I do have a boyfriend.

Doug: Well there's a rough gig. What do you do, keep him chained up in the basement?

Doug: He must be a very smart guy.

Kate: It's Christmas and we skate. I have the flu and we skate. I have a boyfriend in London that I never see. I skate every day for you, so that you can play Dr. Frankenstein with this guy.

Anton: Is not entirely correct.

[pause]

Anton: He went to Boston.

Doug: What, you mean like a book?

Kate: That is a traditionally accepted format, yes.

Doug: Is this the beginning of a conversation, here?

Doug: Yes. Doug can read.

Kate: What was the last book you read? You *were* in college?

Doug: The last thing I read in college was the letter canceling my scholarship when I couldn't play anymore.

Kate: Don't! Don't even try it! Just looking at you makes me sick! To think I was coming to apoligize! Lorie Peckarovski!

Doug: That's not how it happened!

Kate: Spare me the details.

Doug: Where the hell do you get off?

Kate: *Me?*
