Al: Yeah. Sense.

Enn: No.

Al: Well. I guess it's like...

Enn: This.

Al: I'm definitely a product of...

Enn: Media.

Al: So most days, I find...

Al: And trite...

Enn: Taglines.

Al: So that the...

Enn: Ideas.

(long pause)

Al: Yeah. All by themselves.

Enn: Wow. I don't get you.

Al: That's alright. Everyone else does.
