A couple is being interviewed in their home.

The wedding was wonderful!

MAN
It really was!

WOMAN
I can't believe how quickly it flew by.

MAN
I know.

WOMAN
Then, off to England.

MAN
The perfect honeymoon. We're not really beach people.

WOMAN
We stayed in a cah-stle!

MAN
I love it when you do it in the accent!

WOMAN
You mean "Cah-stle"?

MAN
Yeah! It's awesome! You're awesome.

WOMAN
Oh, this guy...You should've seen him--We were by one of those...Q-Tip guards--

MAN
You mean the Beefeaters guys?

WOMAN
No, they weren't eating anything--

MAN
I know, but--

WOMAN
They were guarding the cah-stle.

MAN
Heehee. You said it again.

WOMAN
Yeah, but you were doing that character voice, pretending to be the Q-Tip guard.

MAN
(in a stuffy British accent)
Oh. Ahem. You mean, "I'm Alaistair Brompton. I use to much gel in my hair." Ahem.

WOMAN
HA! Yeah! That's the one! Man, I tell you, we are just perfect together.

MAN
I know.

WOMAN
It's going to be sad when we sell this place.

MAN
A lot of memories here.

WOMAN
He lived here ten years before we got married.

INTERVIEWER
(off screen)
So this is his house?

MAN
Well, our house now.

INTERVIEWER
But she added her touches along the way.

WOMAN
No.

MAN
No.

INTERVIEWER
Oh.

Camera pans to the flowery wallpaper and feminine artwork.

WOMAN
We just need a bigger place. Two people in their 30s have a lot of stuff.

MAN
And there's only one bathroom.

WOMAN
But that isn't a big deal. I mean being together, in a small house, with only one bathroom will bring us closer together. Right?

MAN
Oh definitely.
