Carrie: What do you want to wear to the party today? You want to dress the same, don’t you?
Sherry: Yes. We should wear dresses, shouldn’t we?
Carrie: I guess so. You have a green dress, don’t you?
Sherry: No, I don’t, actually. We both have pink dresses, don’t we?
Carrie: Yes, you’re right. The party is at eight, isn’t it?
Sherry: I don’t know. The invitation is in your room, isn’t it?
Carrie: No. You didn’t throw it out, did you?
Sherry: I gave it to you, didn’t I?
Carrie: I don’t think so. It won’t matter if we’re late, will it?
Sherry: I guess not.
