As it's me, it'll probably be a laugh line. Or lines.

Karen: Why were you so quiet tonight?
Gabe: What? What do you mean?
Karen: When Beth was telling us. You were so silent.
Gabe: I wasn't silent. I was shocked. I was stunned.
Karen: You let me do most of the talking
Gabe: That's not unusual. (She swats at him.) Hey! No, I mean it, you do do most of the talking.
Karen: I do not.
Gabe: Yes you do. You generally have more to say on any given subject than I do. That's why we work well together. You talk, I write, you edit me.
