He's sort of funny.

Your battery got disconnected.

It's not major. It happens.

All right.

Are you actually

about to say something else?

My cousin thinks you were trying

to talk to me the other day.

I was.

- He thinks I blew it.

- You did.

You don't know how to flirt,

do you?

Guess not.

Well, what are you gonna do

about it?

OK. This isn't working.

OK, l'll tell you what. Uh...

I want you to think about it

and, uh... me at Squeals

Saturday night at 6:00... maybe?

- Is that a yes?

- Yeah.

OK. Maybe you'll figure out

how to flirt with me by then.

- Thank you.

- You're welcome.
