Khaled: Hi, what are you looking at?
Susanna: Your photo albums. Your roommate let me in and said I could make myself comfortable while I waited for you.
Khaled: There are some really incriminating pictures in there. You’d better give those back to me.
Susanna: Not yet! I’m looking at your baby pictures and your family portraits. You’re the spitting image of your mother.
Khaled: That’s not my mother. That was our neighbor.
Susanna: Oh, now that I look a little closer, I can see that you resemble your father. You’re a chip off the old block.
Khaled: That’s not my father. That’s my father’s friend. Now, why don’t I take those...
Susanna: Wait! These candids of your birthday parties are so cute! You were so adorable!
Khaled: Right. When I was a kid, I had a face only a mother could love.
Susanna: That’s not true! You have a great profile. I’d expect to see your likeness in paintings and on statues.
Khaled: Okay, enough with the brown-nosing. What do you really want?
Susanna: I don’t want anything...okay, just one little thing. My cousin is in town. I want to go out with Rick tonight and I thought we could double date. Me, Rick, my cousin...and you. What do you say?
Khaled: I knew it had to be something. Does she look like you?
Susanna: We are like two peas in a pod.
Khaled: Then, forget it!
