Jack: Hello, Paula. How are you?
Paula: I’m good, Jack. And you?
Jack: I’m doing great. Hey, did you watch So You Think You Can Dance last night?
Paula: No, I couldn’t. I was busy. Was it interesting?
Jack: It was fantastic! The Brazilian couple gave quite a performance. You should’ve seen it!
Paula: Sounds like I should! Which style did they choose this time?
Jack: Contemporary. They were flawless and smooth. The judges and the audience gave them a standing ovation when they were done.
Paula: I’m such a big fan of this show. I don't believe I missed it.
Jack: Hey, Eric. Good to see you. Please, come in.
Eric: Thanks, man. I was nearby so I thought about dropping by. Were you busy?
Jack: Nah! I was looking for something to watch on TV but nothing caught my attention.
Eric: I see. Do you have a favorite show?
Jack: Yes, nowadays it’s So You Think You Can Dance. Do you watch it?
Eric: No, not really.
Jack: You should. It’s awesome.
Eric: I like American Idol. I’m a huge fan.
Jack: I like it too. But sometimes the judges are too mean!
Eric: That’s what it makes even more interesting in my opinion.
Eric: What are you watching, Paula?
Paula: Right now nothing important but my favorite show is about to start.
Eric: Which one is it? Friends?
Paula: No! It’s How I Met Your Mother! Have you heard about it?
Eric: Who hasn't? It’s my favorite sitcom too.
Paula: Yeah. It’s the coolest one these days. I never miss a single episode.
Eric: I can’t say the same. But I watch it every time I can. Do you know that it’s been nominated for 24 Emmy Awards?
Paula: I did not! Did they win any?
Eric: They won 06! I may miss some episodes but I never miss an Emmy Awards Ceremony!
Paula: Come on Joane, hurry up or we'll be late.
Joane: Just a sec, Paula. I’m getting my car keys. What's the hurry anyway?
Paula: What do you mean, what's the hurry? Do you know what day it is?
Paula: Wrong! It’s Once Upon a Time season finale!
Joane: It is what?!
Paula: A season finale is the final episode of the season! If we don’t hurry, I’ll miss it! Please, please, let’s go!
Joane: Alrite, alrite. Just get in the car.
