Some people talk too much, while others have the opposite problem. Learn to talk about talking in this episode. Slow dialog: 1:31 Explanations: 3:04 Fast dialog: 14:35 Marcia: Phew! I thought they’d never leave. Artem: I enjoyed their company, didn’t you? Marcia: Jessie is fine, a little reserved and soft-spoken, and on the shy side. Kelly, on the other hand, talked our ear off. No one could get a word in edgewise with her. Artem: I thought Kelly’s anecdotes were funny. She was a little long-winded, I’ll admit, but I enjoyed talking to her more than trying to make conversation with Jessie. She is so close-mouthed and guarded that it was like pulling teeth. Marcia: I’d rather talk to someone who is a little reticent than a loudmouth. Artem: Ooh, that’s a little harsh. Marcia: Maybe you’re right, but I don’t like the blathering, gossipy type. Artem: I wonder… Marcia: What? Artem: I wonder what they’re saying about us. Script by Dr. Lucy Tse
