where I can wear my new sunglasses, huh? Ew, gross! What happened to you?

Cameron: And we have that concert tonight.
Mitchell: I know, but, honey, that's the furthest thing from my mind, okay?

Mitchell: Okay, good. You know what? It's settled. We're just gonna put this whole "You insisting I go to the
concert without you" thing behind us.
Cameron: You know what?

Mitchell: Yes, you can. Yes. You eat the pudding, and I'll eat the tickets.
