She: Are you being facetious?

He: No, really, what do you think of it? I did it all the time at Princeton. I had a huge research budget and so many grants that I just made up reasons to take my friends drinking. My receipts said I paid a guy $500 to transcribe some research for me…do you know how much beer $500 buys?
She: I’m…Well…I…
He: Oh, c’mon! It’s not like this money could actually be put to good use!
She: ::checks watch:: Oh! We’ll miss our movie!
