Dave:  Is it matinee time right now?

Kayla:  Yes, it is. It’s, I think it’s 3:00. No, it’s 2:00, 2:12.

Dave:  Do they do matinees on Sundays?

Kayla:  Yes, they do. Which means we could pay matinee price if we go now.

Dave:  Pay, what is it, $6.50 for a matinee?

Kayla:  Before 6 p.m., $6.50 for matinees.

Dave:  Gosh, movies are getting expensive. $9.00 for regular price.

Kayla:  Wow.

Dave:  So, what’s playing right now?

Kayla:  Failure to Launch I’ve already seen, so let’s not see that.

Dave:  You don’t want to see that? I saw V for Vendetta the other day.

Kayla:  Was that good? I heard it’s a very man’s man movie.

Dave:  Yeah, it’s, kind of, if you like Matrix, you know.

Kayla:  Yeah. The Inside Man, I don’t even know what that is.

Dave:  Neither do I. Or Munich.

Kayla:  Munich, that’s been playing for a long time, hasn’t it?

Dave:  Yeah. What are you in the mood for?

Kayla:  I don’t know. I’m in the mood for anything. What are you in the mood for?

thought it would be about a real discussion about what movie they are going to watch… “What are you in the mood for?” isn’t a very good ending in my opionion
