(Saori and Anne are at Sean's apartment)
Sean: I never would've pegged either of you as NCAA basketball fans. I had no idea.
Saori: Don't judge a book by its cover, Sean.
Sean: Would you still be my friend outside of work if I didn't have cable TV?
Anne: (Grinning) I don't answer hypotheticals.
Saori: Anne, you sound just like a Japanese politician.
Sean: Anyway. Thanks for bringing over all this food. I am so pleasantly surprised that one of you was able to bring root beer!
Saori: That's me. I've loved root beer ever since I went on my study abroad program in California. I buy bottles by the dozen on the internet from Okinawa, where it's pretty popular. I also brought hummus with carrot sticks, red and yellow pepper slices, and broccoli chunks. Sounds pretty healthy, huh?
Anne: I brought my essentials: beer and ingredients for nachos.
Sean: Sounds great. My go-to sports-spectating food is red wine with barbecue-flavored potato chips in spinach sour cream dip. It might sound gross, but don't knock it till you try it.
