KL: Are we gonna do this or what?
Prof C: You would make a good football player in a huddle.
KL: So true. I love high-fiving people. Actually, that's a total lie. I feel really uncomfortable when people make me high five them.
Prof C: I bet, that sounds really intense.

Prof C: It's so hot!
KL: What is the word for a lady who can be the recipient of chivalrous acts in a ladylike way?
Prof C: Oooh that's a tough one.
KL: Maybe just that: a lady.
