What do you say?

What do you say?

Yes. No. I don't know.

Those are the three options.

Ted, this is so

I know.

I mean, I come home, I was gonna watch Jeopardy, and there's a string quartet, and I have to pee.

Oh, I'm sorry. Well, go ahead, we'll wait.


Yeah, 'cause when we taIked earlier, you said there'd be pizza.

No, I said I'd get you a pizza afterwards. Look, could we taIk about this later? I'm sort of professing my love here.

Sure. We're not getting any pizza.

Okay. Let's taIk.

Okay. Hey, you guys wanna take five?

All right.

Thanks, guys, we just need a minute. Sort of a big life decision. Love the blue instruments, though. Kind of an inside joke. Thanks.

You're crazy.

Right. Come on.

It's not that I haven't thought about this. You know that I have. But let's look at this, okay? We only just started being friends again.

I know. But come on.

And And we want different things. That's still there. That's not going away. I mean, what if we do this and it doesn't work out and I'd lose you as a friend? I gotta think about this.

Okay, fine. Think about it on the plane. Let's go to Paris for the weekend. I'm serious. I'm kidding. I'm serious.

I can't go to Paris. I'm going camping.

Well, I thought that thing was canceled.

Well, it's back on.

Since when?

Since like an hour ago.

Sending the storm back out into the Atlantic. So it's blue skies this weekend.

You're kidding me. No way. Don't go on this thing.

Ted, I have to go. It's a company camping trip.

God, you are so terrified of anything real. It's like you're floating out in space. Touch the ground, Robin. Live in the world, make a mistake. Make this mistake.

I need to think about this.

Fine. No. I'm sorry, I can't do this anymore. I need an answer.

If you want me to say yes right now, I can't do that.

Well, if it's not yes then it's a no.

Then I guess it's not meant to be.
