She: Yeah Yeah....donno how do they make such amazing food in that hotel alone.
He: I loved the Dal Makhni. The taste is still lingering in my mouth.
She: Oh yeah? You liked it so much?
He: Well I can prove it. How about tasting it from me?
(tries to hug her and she laughs and pushes him)
She: Ok ok...I got it. Hmmm...and what else is still lingering?
He: The Dum aalo was good. I also loved Garlic nan.
She: Well...does that mean that we would be returning there sometime soon?
He: Yeah yeah. I guess so. What...you didn’t like it?
She: Yeah...I liked it. But I liked ONLY the food there.
He: What do you mean exactly?
She: Well...don’t lie as if you don’t know ok?
He: What are you talking about?
She: You don’t know what I am talking about?
He: Seriously I don’t know. What is it about?
She: Weren’t you gaping shamelessly at that waitress?
He: What...No..no. What is wrong with you?
She: Oh yeah. You look at the waitress and it is wrong with me? You were looking at
her as if you could have eaten her alive.
He: What am I? A Cannibal?
She: Oh yes. That’s what you are. I should have taped the way you smiled and giggled at her. I
should have brought a hose pipe, connected it to your mouth and watered the plants in the
hotel. You were drooling shamelessly you moron.
He: Oh c’mon honey. Now don’t make it an issue. I was just trying to make some conversation.
She: Oh...so now it comes under the category of Making conversation?
He: Look...if I treat her with respect only then she would serve us first. You know what I mean?
She: Wow...and you now treat me like a 6 year old and tell me these stupid bed time stories.
He: Oh c’mon honey. That’s the truth. Why would I lie to you?
She: Yeah yeah...you have never lied to me. What about the time you were looking at the women in
the blue saree when entered in to the hotel?
He: Wow...so the tally has now added up to 2.
She: Don’t act innocent. Weren’t you looking her there?
He: There? What’s there?
She: THERE? I mean THERE? What is wrong with you?
He: (hesitates)Look..its science...ok? It’s like a reflex effect.
She: (imitates him) reflex effect. You shamelessly do it and blame it on science as well.
He: Now why are you so angry?
She: Why do you all men need to look there?
He: Look...that’s what men do and that’s why eyes are at front. If it weren’t so important then ears
would have been in front and eyes would have been hanging sideways and we would have been
looking like aliens.
She: And now you have jumped to science fiction? What else...history or drama?
He: Look...I am not justifying it..ok? I am sorry...now what should I do?
She: (sobbing) Answer me something.
She: If I weren’t there with you, you would have married that waitress right?
He: Whoa whoa...now I am getting married to her? Do I also have 2 children who are sucking their
thumb or having nipple in their mouth? What is this game all about?
She: Answer me. Just imagine I was not there with you. Would you have married her or not?
He: Whoa whoa...I am not playing this game. This whole What-if-you-could-do-this scenario is
She: (sobs) So you would have married her right?
He: Oh c’mon honey. Look at me...I am so happy here..married to you...living my amazing life with
She: And is this fight part of the amazing life?
He: Of course it is. Look honey...just looking at some girl randomly is different than looking at
someone with love. I look at you with love.
She: (smiles with tears) You are trying to seduce me.
He: Is that something I shouldn’t be doing?
She: Only if you look at me.
He: (hugs her) By the way I forget to tell you something.
He: She was really beautiful.
She runs after him with a fake anger and a real smile.
