Angela: So you know Mrs. Baker from down the street is getting a new car. She said she’s been saving up for the past couple of years… [pause] I was thinking maybe we should get a new car. I mean, I’ve been thinking about it for a while now, and we have enough money saved up for one, so why not?

Angela: But we need a new car, James. We’ve needed a new one for the past 4 years!
James: But think about it Ange! We could make it our own. Make it our own house. Just you and me… Cause I want to spend the rest of my life with you.
