SD: Not even two months, a very short time.

JW: (Counting on his fingers) Yeah, a month and three weeks.

SD: Wait, how do you know that?

JW: Cause it’s important!

KN: OK, OK. What was your official first date?

SD: Does Music Midtown count?

JW: No, we’re not talking about Music Midtown… Andretti’s?

SD: No, that was like last month! It was before that. When did you come over to my house?

JW: I don’t know the date, but, yeah, I think it was at your house.

KN: Jack, what was your first impression of Sam?

JW: We hated each other.

KN: So who did you both like in middle school?

JW: Hannah Schrager.

KN: Who wears the pants in the relationship?

SD: Me.

JW: I do.

KN: Who’s more competitive?

JW: We’re so competitive. Both of us.

SD: Me!

JW: I think her.

KN: What’s Jack’s favorite song?

SD: Oh, I know this! It’s either “Hell And Back” or “Games” by Luke Bryan.

KN: What about Sam’s?

JW: Um, well…

SD: We literally Snapchatted about it this morning!

JW: What’s her name? It’s like H-A-L-S-E? Hale-sy?

SD: It’s Halsey, “New Americana.”

KN: What’s Jack’s favorite restaurant?

SD: Um, somewhere that has fries?

JW: I swear if you don’t get this!

SD: Chick-fil-A?

JW: No, Wing Factory!

KN: What’s Sam’s biggest fear?

JW: I know this. She told me this like 30 times.

SD: You do. It’s such a basic one, too. It’s arachnophobia [fear of spiders].

KN: If Jack could meet anyone in the world, who would it be?

JW: You should get this.

SD: What’s that basketball player’s name? Why don’t I know it? Give me a hint.

JW: A hint?! OK, hold up, I don’t want to give it away… Possibly the best player to play on the Gonzaga basketball team.

SD: I don’t even know what that is.

JW: Kevin Pangos.
