Catherine: Oh my gosh Guido. I can’t believe you got us reservations to the nicest restaurant in town.
Guido: For you Baby, I’ll do anything . . . I also have some connections.

Waiter: Hello. Welcome to Reggie’s. My name is Fabio, and I’ll be your waiter tonight.
Guido: Wait . . . Fabio?
Waiter: Ay! Guido, my man.
Catherine: You two know each other?
Waiter: Yes, I am Guido’s second cousin twice removed.
Catherine: Well that’s great.
Waiter: Well, I’ll let you decide what you’re going to order while I get the hors d’oeuvres.

Catherine: Wow, I can’t decide what to get: everything here looks so amazing.
Guido: I know what’s the best: I’ll order for both of us, Baby.
Catherine: Guido, you’re the best!

Waiter: Here are your shrimp cocktails.
Catherine: Thank you.
Waiter: Are you ready to order?
Guido: Yes, we’ll have spaghetti and breadsticks, and apple cider.
Waiter: Alright. I’ll be right back with your food.

Catherine: Tonight’s been amazing so far; thanks for taking me here.
Guido: I wanted to do something special — so I got you this . . . because you’re my princess.
Catherine: Oh my gosh, thank you so much Guido — it’s perfect. You’re so romantic.

Waiter: I thought you might want to enjoy a bit of a mood music . . . Thank you so much; I worked on that for three months.
I’ll take these and get the rest of the fondue.

Waiter: Here’s your sparkling cider, just like you requested.
Catherine: Are we going to have any glasses?
Waiter: Of course not silly: just hold out your hands.
Guido: Just do it Babe.
Catherine: Okay.
Guido: Drink up.
Catherine: Oh my gosh.
Waiter: Enjoy.
Guido: Oh my gosh, it’s delicious.

Waiter: Here’s your spaghetti.
Catherine: No plates?
Waiter: Of course not . . . Enjoy!
Catherine: What about napkins or utensils?
Waiter: Just use your hands!

Waiter: I got your breadstick. How many pieces do you want?
Guido: Just two.
Waiter: All righty . . . here are your breadsticks. Enjoy.

Catherine: Well this place is very interesting.
Guido: Fabio the dessert, please.
Waiter: Here you go.
Catherine: One chopstick?
Waiter: I couldn’t find the other one.
