Liang: I have a favor to ask.
Christian: Uh oh, what is it?
Liang: I’m doing a project for my class in culinary school and I need a volunteer to taste some of my creations.
Christian: Not on your life.
Liang: But, why?
Christian: You don’t remember the last time I was your guinea pig? I was sick for two days.
Liang: That was a stroke of bad luck. Come on, please.
Christian: Count me out. No amount of pleading is going to change my mind. I bet I’m not the first person you’ve asked.
Liang: Well, no.
Christian: Who else has turned you down?
Liang: Jacob said no.
Christian: I bet he said something stronger than no.
Liang: He said that he would let me cook food for him over his dead body.
Christian: That’s what I thought. Did you ask Mele, too?
Liang: Yes, and she said she’d rather not.
Christian: Who’s next on your list of victims, I mean candidates?
Liang: You’re my last resort. If you won’t do it, then I’m sunk.
Christian: The answer is still no, but I know someone who won’t turn up his nose at your cooking.
Christian: Come here, Fido!
