Julie: Hmmmm…. haven’t concluded yet, I have a lot of invitation tommorow, I don’t know which one to go yet.
Shola: Oh! Really? I thought you were an introvert (laughs)
Julie: (laughs) Yes I am it’s just that I decided I didn’t want to stay at home tommorow.
Shola: Alright. Just let me know after you have concluded.
Julie: What if I declined your offer?
Shola: Nothing will happen, it’s your choice.
Julie: Really!? You won’t be annoyed?
Shola: (laughs) do you think I will?
Shola: No I won’t, I just hope you will accept my request.

Rachel: Babe! Why did you ignore Frank while he was greeting you?
Julie: (remains silent)
Rachel: Julie! I am talking to you, don’t try to ignore me!!!
Julie: What else do you want me to say?? I have told you several times that I am uncomfortable with your boyfriend coming to our room, you guys can meet somewhere else, we both paid for this room, you have to respect my decision!!!
Rachel: I know you told me that, but Frank came unannounced do you expect me to send him back?
Julie: You should have left with him.
