PAT: Oh, you know. You know. Come on. Sometimes it’s okay with girls like this, they wanna have fun and sometimes it’s not because they got a broken wing, and they’re hurt, and they’re an easy target. And in this case, in this particular case, I think that wing is being fixed. And you gotta make sure it gets mended. And you’re gettin’ in the way of that right now, okay? Because she’s sensitive and she’s smart, she’s artistic. This is a great girl and you gotta be respectful of that. Come on. Let me walk you down to your car. You’re a better guy than this. I can see it in your eyes.
