    eve :

    you should've told me you were trying to socialize

    then i would've looked at you with social eyes

    i thought you were telling me social lies

    howard :

    so what changed your mind?

    eve :

    your social "i's"

    howard :

    really???

    [Eve nods]

    surprised?

    howard :

    i really didn't know what to expect

    so what now?

    eve :

    i'm not sure

    but if the possiblity of us being social again lies somewhere between "Hello" and where we started

    let's say hello again

    howard :

    i love that song by Lionel Richie

    eve :

    me too





    love,

    eve & howard

    Still enjoying how one line from eve just forces howard to follow, and vice versa. :)
