Giorgio: I’ll pick you up tonight at 7:00, okay?

Anna: You’d better make it 8:00. I need time to get ready.

Giorgio: You just need to go home, take a shower, and throw on some clothes. How much time do you need?

Anna: You have no idea what a woman has to do to look her best, do you? Not only do I have to bathe, I need to exfoliate and depilate.

Giorgio: “Depilate”?! What’s that?

Anna: That’s shaving and waxing to you. I have to shave and wax my legs, my armpits, and bikini area.

Giorgio: Whoa! That’s way too much information. I didn’t need to know that.

Anna: After that, I’ll need my nail clippers, nail file, and tweezers to do my nails and my plucking.

Giorgio: I don’t even want to know what you pluck.

Anna: Just my eyebrows and my...

Giorgio: Stop! I don’t need to know the ins and outs of your personal grooming. Is all that really necessary?

Anna: You are going to introduce me to your brother, aren’t you? Your very handsome brother?

Anna: High-maintenance? High-maintenance?! Who are you calling high- maintenance?

Giorgio: And high- strung!
