Conversation chez Cacciaguida: clipper flipper

ELINOR (giving haircut to Greg): *Bzz bzz bzz bzz*

GREG: *outta here*

ELINOR: Honey, do you want a haircut?


ELINOR: ? -- ?

CACCIAGUIDA: If you're wondering if I'm seeing another barber --

ELINOR: *laugh*

CACCIAGUIDA: Yes. I went to Phil's when I was in New Haven.

ELINOR (nostalgically): Phil's....

CACCIAGUIDA: There was an old guy there who says he remembers me.

ELINOR: You haven't changed much, so he probably did.
