Ron: God, you are so beautiful.
Veronica: We really should be going. I swore that I would never get involved with a coworker.
Ron: Wait. What if, just for tonight, we weren’t coworkers? We were co-people?
Veronica: I don’t…
Ron: Shh. You be a woman. I’ll be a man. That’s all.
Veronica: Oh. You continue to surprise me, Mr. Burgundy.
Ron: Oh, I’m storming your castle on my steed, milady.
Veronica: Oh, mi corazón es en fuego! Julio, fuego, fuego, fuego!
Ron: Wait, stop. Stop talking like that. I can’t understand you.
Veronica: Sorry. Take me to Pleasure Town!
Ron: Oh, we’re going there!
Ron: I friggin’ love you!
Veronica: I friggin’ love you back!
Ron: Look! The most glorious rainbow ever!
Veronica: Oh, do me on it!
