It’s tough to find a person you can live with. Learn how not to do it in this episode. Slow dialog: 1:08 Explanations: 3:34 Fast dialog: 15:51 Carlos: Now that your boyfriend has moved out, you need a roommate. There’s no way you can afford this apartment on your own. Inez: I know, but I really don’t want to live with a stranger. I’d have to put up with all of their quirks. Carlos: I don’t think you have a choice. You need someone to split the rent and the cost of utilities, not to mention your cable bill. Inez: I’d need someone who could keep the common areas neat and clean, and who can keep their hands off my stuff. Carlos: I’m sure you’ll manage to find someone with those qualities. Inez: They’d have to help with chores around the apartment, too, and pitch in with general upkeep. Carlos: No doubt there’s someone out there who wouldn’t mind doing that. Inez: Hey, aren’t you looking for a place to live? You could move in here. Carlos: You mean share an apartment with you? No thanks. Inez: Why not? Carlos: I’d just rather not. I don’t think we’d suit. Inez: Why wouldn’t we? Carlos: Do you really want me to spell it out for you? Inez: Yes, in fact, I insist. Carlos: All right. Let’s just say that you’re a little bit grouchy in the mornings. You know that monster in the Alien movies? Inesz: Yes. [silence.] Carlos: Ouch! Ouch! Stop hitting me! Script by Dr. Lucy Tse
