“Your hair looks great”

Woman: Oh my gosh! Yours too! I get mine done by this amazing woman, Tracy, I’ll give you her card.

Man: Yeah it does.

“You did a great job on this project”

Woman: I had so much help! I really couldn’t have done it without Darren’s help.

Man: Yeah I did.

“Thank you”

Woman: Thank YOU

Man: Thank me

“You smell good”

Woman: Thanks for noticing it!! I appreciate you, a random stranger, standing so close to me on the subway just so that you can give me that compliment

Man: Yeah I do

“You look just like Emma Stone”

Woman: Oh, stop! That’s so not true at all! She’s so so skinny, and I’m practically healthy-looking!

Man: I am Emma Stone

“Your daughter is so smart”

Woman: Oh, she takes after her father that way

Man: I am so smart

“And the Oscar goes to…”

Woman (crying): Wow, this is such a dream come true. I couldn’t have done it without the love of my parents, who couldn’t have loved me without the love of their parents, who never even would have moved here except for the volatile political situation in Hungary, so thank you to that particular dictator.

Man: Yeah it does
