"Hmm? What'd you say, Ree?"

"Just thinking. What we call each other."



"Significant other."

"Fuck buddy."

"Hey! You know that doesn't apply here, babe."

"Hmmm. Minion?"

"Hmph. How about, companion."


"We are not twelve years old, Ringo. I will *not* call you my boyfriend."


"Is that your next title?"

"No. I'm calling you a wuss because that's what you're being. How about...spousal unit?"

"Sure, why not? Ummm...duet."

"What, like in music? Ok--ay...other half."


"Sexual Promiscuity Prevention Device."


"You heard me. Your turn."


"Nice. Person of same sex sharing living quarters."

"That's a bit...long."


"Okay. Ball and chain."


"That's NOT funny!! It took me almost a week to get that damn paint out."

"Heh heh heh. Alter ego."

"Better half."




"I'll pass on that one. Err...man after one's own heart?"

"Boring. Walking erection?"

"Hey, I'm *trying* to keep it in the endearment area here. I thought that's what you were doing."


"That's too easy. Intimate."

"Lump of affection."

"How charming." <pause> "Soul."





<whispered> "Love you, John."

"Love you too, Ringo. Now go back to sleep."

"Okay." <pause> "Love."
