Anne: ‘How can I change my mind when it is not as if we see every day? Just four times in a month and you think I will skip it?’ She asked as she sat down.

Chidi: ‘All the girls you have been dating, you never mentioned settling down with any. What makes you even say you want to settle down now?’

Chidi: ‘Who is Kristine?’
Kingsley: ‘The girl I met at the club two weeks ago.’
Chidi: ‘Don’t tell me Kristine, the club girl is the person you want to settle down with.’
Kingsley: ‘I think she is the one for me…..’
Chidi: ‘Why do you think Kristine is the woman for you?’
Kingsley: ‘She is beautiful, attractive and down to earth. Just because she clubs doesn’t give you any right to judge her!’
