Man : So, you're going to drop out, then?
Woman : Why would I want to do that?
Man : I thought he proposed to you.
Woman : You weren't listening! Not yet! But I can tell he'll do it Friday night. He's invited me to this really romantic restaurant and said it's a special occasion.
Man : That's what I mean! You're not going to turn him down, are you?
Woman : Why would I? We've been together for nearly three years, we're both seniors and he's got himself a well-paid job at a reputable firm already.
Man : But isn't it a woman's job to stay at home and raise a family?
Woman : What century do you live in? I'm sure Paul expects me to do more than just stay home and spend his money.
Man : That's not exactly what I said! I grew up in a family of five. My mom wasn't just sitting on her rear-end spending my dad's money.
Woman : Whoha! Cool it! I wasn't accusing your mother of anything but I'm not exactly pregnant either.
Man : Yeah! Right!
