"We're what?!"

"Dating. You know, dating, going out, going steady, seeing each other, involved with each other, pursuing a relationship . . . boyfriends."

"Where did they get an idea like that?! Just because we sometimes play pool together--"
 

"Nearly every night."

"We beat Harry and Ayala at Parises Squares--"

"We being you and I as a team."

"We try out new holodeck programs--"

"Just the two of us."

"We eat dinner and sometimes breakfast together . . ."

"And?"

"And what?"

"Didn't you have something else to add to that?"

"You want to come back to my place tonight after dinner and pool?"

"Not on the first--"  pause  "How many dates have we been on?"

"So we are dating?"

"Apparently."

"Then you'll come back to my quarters tonight?"

silence

"Paris?"

"Yeah?"

"Maybe we should talk about this."
