Patricia: What do you think of our new neighbor?
Ray: I don’t know. I haven’t met him yet.
Patricia: Me neither, but I think he’s a shady character.
Ray: Why do you think that?
Patricia: Well, when he was moving in, I tried to shoot the breeze with him and he was shifty. When I asked him what line of work he was in, he was very evasive.
Ray: Maybe he just didn’t want to talk to a busybody when he was busy moving boxes. Have you thought of that?
Patricia: I wasn’t being a busybody. I was just being neighborly. When I offered to help him, he practically kicked me out of his apartment.
Ray: Okay, you must be right. He’s probably a serial killer.
Patricia: I wouldn’t put it past him.
Ray: Come on. My guess is that he just wants some peace and quiet.
Patricia: He wants peace and quiet to do what? That’s what I want to know.
Ray: I think we should just mind our own business.
Patricia: You can do what you like, but I’m going over there and I’m getting some answers. If I have tolive next to him, I’m entitled to know something about him.
Ray: Why don’t you leave the man alone? He’s entitled to some privacy. And plus, he probably won’t let you in.
Patricia: That’s what you think. I’m not taking no for an answer.
Ray: That poor man!
