Neville: So you broke up again – and went back to her again.
Beckham: Yeah… I dunno.

Beckham: Yeah, I know…
Neville: There’s other girls – like – Dorothy?
Beckham: She’s got a smart mouth.
Neville: Or there’s Natsumi.
Beckham: I heard she’s got a college guy for a boyfriend now.
Neville: Oh – yeah. Or there’s that Fenchurch. She’s a looker.
Beckham: Yeah… Someone said she has a boyfriend, who doesn’t go to our school. Besides, she’s a tomboy. I don’t like a girl who can play soccer as well as me. It isn’t right, somehow.

Neville: Huh… how about that Allegra, Pal’s sister?
