“Tapping your foot isn’t going to make me choose faster, love.”

“Not gonna make you choose any slower either, and trust – it’s good for me to have the outlet.”

“Mmm.”

“You know you’re gonna choose the limeade, it’s always the limeade.”

“What was it that Gene gave y’all at the wrap party?”

“Vanilla something. Vanilla vodka?”

“Right, so that won’t mix well with limeade.”

“Castro’s is down the block, we can grab something else.”

“We already have the vodka.”

“Well what mixes well with vanilla vodka?”

“… whipped cream.”

“Sir.”

“…. chocolate milk.”

“Are we 5?”

“I hope not, given the vodka.”

“Seltzer? Keep it simple. Anything else is gonna be too sweet, yea?”

“Seltzer it is. Lime? Plain? Orange? …. What? Don’t look at me like that.”

“I will be happy with anything you choose, just choose. If we get home in 10 we can fit in 3 episodes.”

“I never should have introduced you to Top Chef.”

“It’s the thing that brings me the most joy in the world, you can’t knock my most joyful thing. And honestly the fact that you didn’t show me it when we first started dating really says a lot about how little you valued me. Just some chick you met at the bar, I get it.”

“Stop. I saved myself from three years of Top Chef on repeat, this is a win all around.”
