Sample transcript

Harp: So if you’re into something then it means you like the thing, for example the dinosaurs, but if you’re into someone, that means you have a romantic interest in them.
Jessie:  Exactly. Should we do a dialogue?
Harp: We should.
Jessie: Hey Harp, how did the date go last week?
Harp: Umm. It went really well. It was really fun, but he hasn’t called me yet.
Jessie: Oh, it’s been a whole week?
Harp: Yeah, one whole week. He must not be into me.
Jessie: I don’t know, maybe you’re just not his type.
