He: "Urrm..."
He: "Grocery shopping? No problem. What do we need?"
She: "I have a list made."
He: "Okay. If I have to look like a man sent out with a list I shall."
She: "It's a list of all the things we don't need."

She: "No good. Not as good a variety as the first shop."
He: "But the first one is too expensive."
She: "So...?"
