INT. UNIVERSITY. DAY.
SOPHIE, mid-twenties, sits at a table by a window across from her boyfriend PETER, also mid-twenties. They're looking over their notes. Peter looks up.
PETER: What do you think about China?
SOPHIE: What do I think of it?
SOPHIE: It’s a country.
SOPHIE: They don’t speak English there.
PETER: Also true.
SOPHIE: It’s a long plane ride away from here.
PETER: That’s true as well.
SOPHIE: Do you want me to list off everything I know about China?
PETER: No –
SOPHIE: Because I could.
PETER: I’m aware. But no thanks.
SOPHIE: Why’d you ask me about it?
PETER: Would you want to go?
SOPHIE: Do you know how expensive that would be?
PETER: Pretty expensive.
SOPHIE: Very expensive. We can’t afford it right now. We both have tuition.
PETER: That’s your excuse for everything. We never spend any money, because whenever I say something like “We should rent a movie!” You say “Tuition.” I say “We need new pillow cases!” And you say “Tuition.” “Let’s dance!” “Tuition.”
SOPHIE: I don’t say “Tuition” when you say “Dance.”
PETER: But you’re thinking it.
SOPHIE: Only because you always step on my feet when we dance.
PETER: But if you let me take dancing lessons, that wouldn’t happen.
PETER: I saw that one coming, just so you know.
SOPHIE: Congratulations. Now get back to researching.
PETER: You’ll think about China?
PETER: I sense a new favourite excuse coming on.
SOPHIE: Now you’re catching on. How about doing it?
PETER: I –
PETER: I totally walked into that one, didn’t I.
