Phil: You're breaking my heart.

Alex: Save it for Luke. He'll love that. Can we just get the gift and get out of here?

Jay: For who?

Merle Tucker: Mm, things still rough between the two of you?

Jay: Merle, things have always been rough. That woman never stopped complaining. Finding the

Haley: Shut up. Be normal.

[Cellphone buzzes]

airline [ˈerlaɪn]: a company that provides regular flights to take passengers and goods to different places 航空公司
