The two people in the dialogue below want to fix pork chops for dinner, but they later find out that the meat has gone bad....
Wayne: What are we going to eat for dinner?
Lilia: I'm going to fix some pork chops.
Wayne: I'm afraid the meat is rotten.
Lilia: That's strange! I just bought it the day before yesterday.
Wayne: Well, I forgot to put it in the refrigerator.
Lilia: Good for you! Now what should we eat?
Wayne: Why don't we eat out?
Lilia: Again? Weren't you just complaining that it's too expensive to eat out?
Wayne: Not when you're hungry.
She's behind the times!
Do you know what girls think about? The girl in the dialogue tells you what she thinks about....
Julie: Her dress looks funny.
Daniel: I wouldn't say that. It looks fine to me.
Julie: Are you kidding. She's behind the times. That style went out last year.
Daniel: Oh, come on, as long as it looks good on her.
Julie: Wow, you're really as out-dated as she is.
Daniel: You're darn right. I'm out of style. So what? What's the point of keeping yourself in style?
Julie: No wonder you never buy me a new dress.
Honesty is the best policy!
Storyline: Jon thinks that his roommate is taking advantage of him. Terri suggests that Jon have a talk with his roommate to get things straight.
Terri: How are things going with you and your roommate?
Jon: Not very well. We're supposed to share the groceries, but I end up feeding him three meals a day. My grocery bill is huge, you know. I really can't afford it any longer.
Terri: I know how you feel. I used to have a roommate like that. He never offered to reimburse me for anything.
Jon: I'm really fed up with his freeloading, but I just don't know how to tell him that he should come up with half the grocery bill, because sometimes he treats me to a meal in a restaurant.
Terri: Well, honesty is the best policy. Maybe you just want to have a heart-to-heart, friend-to-friend talk with him. If he refuses to mend his ways, then ask him to move out. You can't let him wear out his welcome.

Sydney: Would you like to have some ice-cream? I've got a variety of flavors for you to choose from. I've got strawberry, peach, chocolate, chocolate chip, chocolate brownie, coffee, vanilla, rocky road, butter pecan, and praline.
Martha: Wow! What choices you have! I wish I could, but I just can't. I'm on a diet to lose weight.
Sydney: Come on, it's just a bite. It doesn't really hurt to have just a bite.
Martha: I'd better not. Please don't tempt me. Please!
Sydney: Gee! You are really strong-willed.
Martha: You're darn right. I'm not so easily coaxed into doing something that I think is wrong.
Sydney: Well, I'd better not tempt you. Otherwise, if I give you a piece of cake, you might ask for a glass of milk.
