Dialogue

A: Did you watch "Cinderella" last night?
B: Of course, you know I never miss a show.
A: That woman has got to be the biggest backstabber in the world.
B: Tell me about it. One minute she's telling her sister how much she loves her, and the next minute she's trying to scam on her boyfriend.
A: Well, the guy isn't exactly innocent either. He's definitely playing the field.
B: Yeah, but I can't believe he doesn't know that she's just using him.
A: I know, it's so sad. he's such a babe, too.
B: Well, I'm sure that sooner or later her true colors will come out.
A: Yeah, but not before she breaks her sister's heart.
B: She'll be all right. Remember what happened a few months ago?
A: I can't remember. What did she do?
B: She got even with her sister by going out with her boyfriend.
A: Oh yeah, was that the lawyer or the businessman?
B: No, it was the lifeguard.
A: God, you really are a fanatic about soap operas.
B: Well, believe me. These soap operas are definitely more exciting than my boring love life.
A: They better be. I'd never watch a show as boring as your love life.
B: Gee, thanks a lot. With friends like you who needs enemies?
