Manny: Why aren't you wearing your new jeans? Eve: Because they're too tight. Manny: But... you just bought them yesterday? Eve: So? Manny: So?! Why'd you buy pants that don't fit? Eve: Because there was this really skinny sales clerk helping me, and I didn't want her to know my real size, so I pretend those fit. Manny: That's insane! Who cares what some stranger thinks? Eve: Being a woman is... complicated. Let's call them my "goal" jeans and move on, shall we?
