Carlos: Now that your boyfriend has moved out, you need a roommate. There’s no way you can afford this apartment on your own.

Inez: I know, but I really don’t want to live with a stranger. I’d have to put up with all of their quirks.

Carlos: I don’t think you have a choice. You need someone to split the rent and the cost of utilities, not to mention yourcable bill.

Inez: I’d need someone who could keep the common areas neat and clean, and who can keep their hands off my stuff.

Carlos: I’m sure you’ll manage to find someone with those qualities.

Inez: They’d have to help with chores around the apartment, too, and pitch in with general upkeep.

Carlos: No doubt there’s someone out there who wouldn’t mind doing that.

Inez: Hey, aren’t you looking for a place to live? You could move in here.

Carlos: You mean share an apartment with you? No thanks.

Inez: Why not?

Carlos: I’d just rather not. I don’t think we’d suit.

Inez: Why wouldn’t we?

Carlos: Do you really want me to spell it out for you?

Inez: Yes, in fact, I insist.

Carlos: All right. Let’s just say that you’re a little bit grouchy in the mornings. You know that monster in the Alien movies?

Inesz: Yes. [silence.]

Carlos: Ouch! Ouch! Stop hitting me!
