Her – I have all these boys mad at me. (Pause) (Looking at him) You’re not mad at me, are you?
Him – (Taken aback slightly) Are you kidding?!?
Her – Are you as far from being mad at me as is possible?
Him – (chuckles) You could say that… Annnnd I think we’ll leave that right there.
(get to car, eye contact, pause)
Him – Would it upset anyone if I gave you a hug in this facility? (Indicates [store] area)
Her – Only [cough] and I don’t care about that.
Him – (Looking down at her) You fit very well there.
Her – I’ve always thought so.
(he gets in car, goodbyes and well wishes are said)
