Conversation chez Cacciaguida: graduating class

Scene: the graduation banquet for the Law School Class of '04, watching the class video. I'm pointing out students to Elinor as I recognize them.

Cacciaguida: There's Julie; there's Dorothy; that's Heather; Sarah; Angela; Laura; the other Angela; Melissa; Natalie....

Elinor: Do the guys have names too?

Cacciaguida: Hm. Don't know. Think it would be a good idea?
