Sample transcript

Jen: So what about your night?
Rick: Well, I didn’t do anything special. I didn’t get lucky like you did.
Jen: No, no, nothing happened. But really, I thought you were supposed to go out last night.
Rick: No, actually that’s tonight.
Jen: Oh, I guess I got it mixed up.
Rick: Yeah. Last night I just stayed in. I watched some TV and I straightened up my place. I was pretty much a couch potato.
Jen: Hey, did you watch American Idol? I missed it.
Rick: No I didn’t. Are you into that?
Jen: Yeah, I can’t help it. I got into it because of a friend of mine. She told me it was funny, so I checked it out, and now I can’t stop watching.
Rick: Yeah, I try not to tune into those reality shows, they’re quite addictive.
Jen: For sure!
