  • Don't worry, Alexandra.
  • We'll find the owner.

  • They're still open?
  • They're open until nine o'clock.
  • We have two and a half hours.
  • Let's take Gemma by there now.

  • She's so cute.
  • Look at those eyes.

  • at the end of the semester.
  • She just wants love and affection.
  • Come on, Robbie.
