SLIM: Who was the girl, Steve?
STEVE: Who was what girl?
SLIM: The one who left you with such a high opinion of women.
SLIM: You know Steve, you’re not very hard to figure, only at times. Sometimes I know exactly what you’re going to say. Most of the time. The other times… the other times, you’re just a stinker.
[Slim kisses Steve]
STEVE: What did you do that for?
SLIM: I’ve been wondering if I’d like it.
STEVE: What’s the decision?
SLIM: I don’t know yet. [They kiss again] It’s even better when you help.
