Danny: You look like you need to relax.

Sybil: Excuse me?

Danny: What I mean is, you look like you could use some R and R.

Sybil: I didn’t know I looked tired and worn out.

Danny: No, what I’m trying to say is, people need leisure time once in a while.

Sybil: Yes, that’s certainly true.

Danny: The human body needs downtime to recuperate and to regenerate.

Sybil: Okay, I guess that’s true.

Danny: Let me rephrase that. People need time away from work to get ready for more work.

Sybil: Are you saying you’re planning on giving me more work?

Danny: No, no, no. Let me put it another way. It’s imperative that you don’t work this weekend.

Sybil: Why? What’s going on this weekend? Are you saying that something big is happening in the department this weekend and I’m being left out?

Danny: No, not at all. What I’m trying to say is...[sigh]...would you like to go out with me Saturday night?

Sybil: Oh, I guess I didn’t catch your drift earlier. You’re asking me out for Saturday.

Danny: Yes, I am.

Sybil: Then, I accept.

Danny: Really?

Sybil: Yes, as long as you promise never to ask me out on a first date ever again!
