"Susan's going to be in town this weekend. Mind if I take a night off?"
"Yeah, I guess I can handle Sprite by myself."
"Just making noises. Don't worry."
"I figure you still owe me anyway."
"Owe you for what?"
"The cruise you took."
"Jen, that was four months ago. You've had plenty of-"
"John, it was in January."
"Fine, three months ago."
"How long are you going to hang that over my head? Are we going to be in our sixties with you telling me to watch Sprite while you take a breather?"
"If Sprite is still in our house when we're sixty, you have my permission to put me out of my misery."
"You know what I mean."
"I'm not sure. I think I'm confusing myself."
"Tell you what, I'll give you a year to call in your favors before you can no longer use the cruise card as your Ace."
"Are you setting an expiration date on my payback?"
"I don't know."
"Come on, Jen. A year is plenty of time to make it even."
"Any time I want a night off or a break or-"
"Within reason, of course."
"Restrictions? What other fine print are you going to throw in there?"
"No, what I mean is you can't call in a favor RIGHT before you take it. Give me notice."
"....Give me forty-eight hours to think about it."
"What, you need it in writing?"
"You could say that."

I have until tonight to give him an answer.
