"I'm with Stein, bud. Besides, Western NY is a day trip from NYC, so what's the big deal for her moving? If she never wants to leave Batavia or wherever, then you need to decide if YOU never want to leave Batavia. How often would you guys…"

"No. As my father would say, you need a kick in the arse. You got a job and your life is on the up and up and you are going to throw it away for what? If you guys have some special love then surely she can come to NYC so at least one of you have a…"
