Suzanne: This place is very nice.

Robert: Yeah. Yeah, it is. And the food's great, too.

Suzanne: Oh.. how do you know Steve, Dan and Rick?

Robert: Well, I work with Steve and Rick, and Dan lives across from me.

Suzanne: Really?

Robert: I'm really glad they set this thing up tonight, because.. well, they said you were a lot of fun.

Suzanne: [ laughing ] Oh, really?

Robert: And you know, we were probably gonna have.. you know.. well, they said, you know.. a wild time! So, I took the night off, you know, because they said it would be "worth it".

Suzanne: Oh, is that what they said? Oh, that's sweet! I'm sure we'll have a nice evening.

Robert: [ excited ] Oh, yeah, yeah! I think we're gonna have a pretty amazing night! In fact, they said that you really like your Jack Daniels, so let's get this party rolling and get a couple Jacks, huh? [ Waiter #1 walks by ] Uh, waiter?

Waiter #1: Uh.. yes, sir? I'm not your waiter, but I'll tell him what you want.

Robert: Oh. Thanks. A couple of Jack Daniels on the rocks.

Suzanne: I'm sorry. Just a Perrier for me.

[ the waiter makes a mental note, then starts to walk off. Robert grabs the waiter and pulls him back for a second, so he can discuss the drinks with Suzanne ]

Robert: Huh?

Suzanne: I'm.. I'm not a big drinker anymore. I really can't hold my booze too well. I get a little.. anyway, Perrier would be fine. Thanks!

Robert: Okay. [ sends the waiter on his way ] So.. you don't drink anymore?

Suzanne: Oh, no! I used to be such a big partier! I used to love to drink! The problem was, I'd get really, you know.. horny! [ laughs ]

Robert: ] trying to digest this sudden information ] Yeah.. Yeah, we don't want that..

Suzanne: Thank God that's over with! I stopped drinking, and you know what? I've never felt better!

Robert: That's great.. you should really be proud of yourself..

Suzanne: Well, I am! You know what? I think I'm going to go all out and get the Lobster Special!

Robert: [ sensing his dilemma ] Yeah.. it's a good choice.. good choice..

Suzanne: You know, it's funny - when I'd go on a first date before, I'd be really insecure, and I'd order, like, the least expensive thing on the menu. Now, I think, "Hey, this guy asked me out! He must like me! I'm gonna order the best thing on the menu, because I deserve it!" [ laughs ]

Robert: [ starting to grow uncomfortable ] Yeah.. that's a good rule.. a very good rule..

Suzanne: Can I tell you something? Um.. this is kind of embarrasing, but.. I used to be so wild that, if I went on a first date, half the time we wouldn't even make it to the restaurant. I mean, I'd meet him at the door in a raincoat, with nothing underneath, and just drag him into the bedroom! We wouldn't even spend a dime![ laughs ]

Robert: [ really disappointed, but trying not to show it ] But.. that's the old you?

Suzanne: Oh, yeah. I was crazy back then! I would do crazy stuff like that all the time!

Robert: Now, this all stopped how long ago?

Suzanne: Five weeks ago.

Robert: Interesting. Interesting.

Suzanne: Oh, my gosh, I was a mess! I'd do anything! I remember once I woke up in bed with three guys! [ thinking ] Actually, it was your friends - Rick, Dan and Steve! Wow! I just remembered that! Isn't that funny?

Robert: [ tries to laugh, but can't ]

[ Waiter #2 brings their drinks to the table ]

Waiter #2: Alright.. a Jack Daniels on the rocks, and a Perrier for the lady.. [ recognizes her ] Suzanne?!

Suzanne: Oh, my gosh! Kenny?! [ laughs and gets up to hug him ]

Waiter #2: It's so good to see you!

Suzanne: Yeah!

Waiter #2: Look, I gotta take these orders, I'll come back and get yours. Okay?

Suzanne: Okay!

[ Waiter #2 steps aside ]

Robert: [ greatly distressed ] Yuo know him, Suzanne?

Suzanne: Oh. Well, the old Suzanne dated him once!

Robert: Oh. What's the old Suzanne doing now?

Suzanne: Oh, you wouldn't want to meet her! She was crazy! I'm glad I'm telling you this, because I wouldn't want you to worry I'm like that anymore. I mean, that is so over, I promise you. Please don't think ill of me.

Robert: No, no! I don't actually, I don't at all. Actually, I think you're being a little too hard on yourself. You know, sometimes when you have a bad habit like that.. or smoking, or something.. you don't want to quit cold turkey. You know? And this isn't me just talking, either.. it's medical journals, it's things I've read.. They say it's just a lot smarter if you just taper off. You ever read that?

Suzanne: No. This is better, believe me. I mean, a kiss on the cheek is so much more romantic to me than a night of wild sex!

Robert: [ he wishes ] Yeah.. yeah.. Yeah, I guess, in a way..

Suzanne: I mean, really.. Could you go out with a girl who, two months ago was dating a guy and decided to give him a little surprise because it was our one-month anniversary, so she crawled under the table and gave him the best time he ever had? In a ppublic place! I mean, would you really want to date someone like that?

Robert: [ lustful, confused ] No?

Suzanne: That's right! You wouldn't! You know what? It was this restaurant, and I even thin it was this table! [ laughs ] Oh, gosh! [ sees her date looking pale ] Are you okay?

Robert: Uh.. yeah.. To tell you the truth, I'm not okay. I'm just not feeling very well..

Suzanne: Oh, well, you want to take a raincheck on this? I mean, that's okay with me.

Robert: You sure you don't mind? Because, maybe we should.. [ looks offscreen ] Waiter, could we get our check? [ looks at Suzanne ] Let's go, huh?

Suzanne: Alright.

[ the both get up ]

Robert: [ looks offscreen, panics ] Oh, my God..

Allan: [ offscreen ] Robert?

Robert: It's my Dad and his new wife.

Allan: [ walks up to the table ] Robert! Son! What are you doing here? I thought that maybe.. [ notices Suzanne ] Suzanne?!

Suzanne: Allan?! [ laughs and rushes to hug him ]

Allan: [ glancing at table ] Hey! Our table!

[ Robert reaches the height of his discomfort as the scene ends ]
