Elle: “I feel like we barely get to see each other since we’ve been here.”
Warner: “Oh, I know. I’m so busy with these case studies and hypos.”
Elle: “I know what you mean. I can’t imagine doing all this and Callahan’s internship next year. That’s gonna be so much.”

Warner: “Well, yeah. But–”
Elle: “But what? We took the same LSATs, and we’re taking the same classes.”
Warner: “I know, but come on Elle, be serious. You can do something more valuable with your time.”
Elle: “I’m never going to be good enough for you, am I?”
