Saori: Is Sean here yet?
Anne: Yeah, he just went to get some coffee, I think. Why?
Saori: I want to know how his interview went.
Anne: Oh, that's right. That was why he wasn't at work yesterday.
Saori: It's weird to think he might take a job somewhere else.
Anne: He said he wasn't that serious about it. He was just going to see what was out there.
Saori: If he liked what he saw, though, I'm sure he would take it.
(Sean walks in with a cup of coffee)
Saori: How was it?
Sean: Keep your voices down.
Anne & Saori: Sorry.
Sean: In a word, it was all very vanilla. The people, the office, the work they do, all of it.
Anne: It means something is bland, conventional, uninteresting.
Saori: In that case, I never would have imagined that company to be vanilla.
Anne: Yeah, I would've thought it would at least be Neapolitan.
Saori: What does that mean?
Sean: Anne's just joking.
Anne: Sorry to confuse you, Saori. Neapolitan is a type of ice cream. I'm just as surprised as you are to hear that the company is conventional.
