It's certainly not easy but for a native (BrE) speaker it's intelligible, with some work. I imagine an AmE speaker might find it easier.

I've written a script below for the first part. Maybe someone else would like to finish it. Or you could try yourself. Post it here. Be a good exercise.

GIRL: You('re) going out?
BOY: Yeah. Mark and Peter are downstairs.
GIRL: You said you were going to spend the night in with me tonight.
BOY: I changed my mind. They both took the night off. We don't really get the chance any more since Mark had his kid.
GIRL: But what about tonight? You promised me this morning before you went to work.
BOY: Sorry. Things change. You said the same thing last week when you hung out with Karen [?]... [0:43]
