TOM: I don’t know. It’s not that simple. Like, are we “going steady?” Come on, guys. We’re adults. We know how we feel. We don’t need to label it. “Boyfriend, girlfriend.” That stuff is very… juvenile.

 Ok. Number one. Your last girlfriend was Amy Sussman in the 7th grade and you “dated” for an hour. And you… you’ve been with Robyn and no one else since you were ten. I hardly think you two are the authorities on modern relationships.

 “Why rock the boat?” is what I’m thinking. Things are going well. If we start putting labels on it, that’s like the kiss of death. Like saying to a girl “I love you.”
