Antonio: Why are we stopping here?
Melanie: We can’t go to the dinner party empty-handed. We need to bring a bottle of wine.
Antonio: I don’t know anything about wines. You’ll need to pick a bottle.
Melanie: I don’t know much about wines, either. I just know we need a good table wine. Do you think we should get a bottle of white, red, or rosé?
Antonio: I don’t know.
Melanie: The label on this one says that it’s fruity and not too tart. This other one says that it’s full-bodied, but I think we want a light-bodied one, right?
Antonio: I have no idea.
Melanie: The label on this one says that it’s from a California vineyard. Is that good or bad?
Antonio: I don’t know. Stop asking me. Here’s a corkscrew. Why don’t you take out the cork and we’ll have a taste?
Melanie: That’s very funny. You’re not helping me at all.
Antonio: I say we just bring them a six-pack. I know I’d rather have beer than wine any day.
Melanie: Stop fooling around. We need to pick out a bottle of wine.
Antonio: I have an idea. Let’s bring them a bottle of champagne. You can’t go wrong with champagne.
Melanie: Champagne? It’s not a special occasion.
Antonio: We’ll tell them that being invited for dinner in their home is a special occasion for us. They’ll be happy to hear that.
Melanie: I don’t know about that.
Antonio: Trust me. Grab a bottle and let’s go. We’re late!
