Mike: Maria. Are you getting tired at all?
Maria: Tired? Tired of what?
Mike: Tired of walking around the mall.
Maria: No, not really. Are you tired?
Mike: No, I'm fine. I was just wondering... Are you getting hungry?
Maria: Maybe a little. But I'm not really hungry. Are you hungry?
Mike: Not at all. There sure are a lot of people at the mall today, don't you think?
Maria: It's pretty typical for a Saturday.
Mike: All these people kind of make you want to leave. Doesn't it?
Maria: Mike. Why are you asking me all the questions?
Mike: Questions? What questions? I was just making conversation.
Maria: I get the feeling that's not true. Do you want to leave, Mike?
Mike: Not if you don't. I just wanted to make sure you were fine. I mean, it's not like I have anything to do today.
Maria: Are you sure about that? Something tells me you want to go home.
Mike: What makes you say that?
Maria: You've been giving me reasons for wanting to leave. Mike, you can be
honest with me. Do you want to leave? I promise I will understand whatever the
reason may be.
Mike: Alright, you saw right through me. I do want to go home.
Maria: I knew it! Why do you want to go back home now?
Mike: I want to catch a football game on television.
Maria: A football game! Mike, are you kidding me?
Mike: Hey, you said you would understand!
Maria: I'd understand if you were tired or even hungry, but a football game? That I cannot understand.
Mike: It's a big game, Maria. My school, UCLA, is playing USC! Look, I promise I'll make it up to you if we leave right now.
Maria: Alright, but I am holding you to that promise. Don't think for a second that I won't remember.
Mike: Alright, okay. Let's just get going already. The game is going to start in thirty minutes.
Maria: I cannot believe you, Mike. A football game, really?
Mike: Yes, really. Now, come on. There's the exit!
