Skylar: Do you want to watch Game of Thrones with me?
Eli: I'd rather be eaten by warlocks.
Skylar: Joke's on you because there aren't warlocks in the show.
Eli: Well what does Game of Thrones have?
Eli: That has to be a lie.
Skylar: Well, technically they aren't zombies, they're whi--
Eli: Stop. I know the fact that I've now given you upwards of 10 seconds of my time for this conversation probably makes you think I care, but I truly don't.
Skylar: Just come watch it with me while I file the divorce papers. I'll even let you ask me which one is Dumbledore.
Eli: You can't divorce me because we aren't married yet and I've passed my prime so I can't find anyone else.
Skylar: Pleeeaaaaaassse. I don't want to watch it by myself.
Eli: I don't even know what it's about.
Skylar: So, there's this queen lady and zombies and various lords and they're all fighting for the iron throne--
Eli: Is that like the Iron Lady?
Skylar: Will that make you more or less likely to watch?
Skylar: Then . . . yes. But less Alzheimer's. And there are dragons.
Eli: Do the dragons eat people?
Skylar: They have from time to time but that's not a major plot point.
Eli: Then why are they there?
Skylar: Because they're the tanks of the rightful ruling family led by [some name I don't even know ask Skylar].
Eli: Deloras Tegardian?
Skylar: Yeah . . . you've pretty much got it.
Eli: What year does it take place?
Skylar: It doesn't.
Eli: It doesn't isn't an answer to a "what year" question.
Skylar: Yes it is.
Eli: No it's not. This is just like when people say "good luck" to you and you respond "I will."
Skylar: It doesn't take place in any particular year because it's fantasy.
Eli: Just tell me a year.
Eli: Ok, so Deloras Tegardian is fighting Meryl Streep with dragon tanks right around the year Forrest Gump came out and there are zombies and at some point Dumbeldore?
Skylar: Yeah, that's basically it.
Eli: Your show sounds really stupid.
Skylar: Oh, and lots and lots of boobs.
Eli: Do you know who you're talking to here?
|Now he's ignoring me.|
