Lance: Did you see Kim at the party last Saturday?
Paulina: Yeah, I saw her. Why?
Lance: She was wearing a skimpy dress and all of the men were leering at her all night. I used to think she was a nice girl. Isn’t she worried that she’ll get a reputation?
Paulina: A reputation for what?
Lance: For being…you know.
Paulina: No, I don’t know.
Lance: For being easy! It doesn’t take much for people to jump to the wrong conclusions when a woman is dressed like that.

Lance: No, not just based on that. The guys at the party were talking and one of them said he used to date her, and he said…
Paulina: Now you’re listening to some sleazy guy at a party boasting about his conquest. The question is, why are you so ready to give credibility to rumors like that?
Lance: Whoa, don’t go ballistic on me. I was only telling you what I heard. I thought you might be interested.
Paulina: Well, you thought wrong. I used to think that women were catty, but you men are much, much worse!
