LAURA and MICKEY are sat dining at a restaurant table.
LAURA: How did you know it was going to be good tonight?
MICKEY: Hey, when do I ever get it wrong?
LAURA: Your ex!
MICKEY: No, since I’ve been going out with you.
LAURA: The bistro in Leicester Square, when you told me that’s where you used to go with her.
MICKEY: You still said the food was good.
LAURA: Until it came to paying.
MICKEY: I was only joking when I said she used to pay.
LAURA: That’s why she dumped you.
MICKEY: No, it was a mutual decision.
LAURA: Well don’t expect me to consult you when I’m ready to blow you out.
MICKEY: I guess I better pay the bill.
