Partial Transcript: Episode 22 (Drinking)
Andrew: What’s your favorite hard liquor?
Nick : Bourbon.
Virginia: I don’t really have one.
Virginia: Martini’s are ok.
Nick: Gin or vodka?
Virginia: Vodka. I had one about six months ago at Perry’s Steakhouse. It was a peach martini with sugar around the rim.
Nick: It’s probably a vodka martini. They also do a really good one with Beefeaters.
Virginia: I haven’t gone back to get them to make it again.
Nick: Next time you go, invite me. I love going there.
Virginia: It’s weird because one of the bartenders is a spitting image of my friend back home.
Andrew: Are you one of those creepy people?
Virginia: No! I feel bad because the guy waits on us, and I end up staring at him.
Andrew: Rather than tell him, which isn’t that weird, you just stare at him?
Virginia: What I really want is for my friend to come into town and for them to take a picture together.
Andrew: That would have been kind of funny. Does the universe implode if you show someone your doppelganger? Back to our topic: I love vodka.
Nick: You know the Russians stole vodka from the Polish, right?
Andrew: Yeah. I’ve tried a bunch of different kinds, but now I prefer Stoli.
Virginia: Do you drink it straight?
Andrew: I’ll do shots. Usually if I’m just drinking mostly vodka, I’ll mix in orange juice. It’s a really strong screwdriver. If you’re drinking at your own home, why make a fancy drink?
Nick: Because you love it.
Mike: They have drink mixes.
Virginia: The drink mixes are too sugary.
Nick: What about Bloody Mary?
Andrew: Mike, what’s your favorite drink?
Virginia: But you don’t drink very much?
Mike: Not really.
Virginia: Are you like once a month or every ten years?
Mike: About once a month for special occasions. I’ll drink Champaign. It’s very nice.
Nick: What’s your favorite, Virginia?
Virginia: Wine. I did study abroad in Italy. It’s so pervasive that if you didn’t drink when you went over there, you’ll drink it when you leave.
Andrew: Wasn’t that a product of lack of suitable drinking water in the past?
Nick: Yes. That or they like getting drunk.
Virginia: And they mix it with the carbonated water. That’s sort of the gateway. You ease into it.
Nick: That’s funny because you go to a lunch place, and they bring in a pitcher of wine.
Virginia: I had this really interested experience where I ate with my professors. It was the first time that I’ve really been treated as an adult as far as alcohol is involved.
Nick: How bad of a headache did you have?
Virginia: I didn’t. You guys want to hear my one hangover story?
