“Gervais!”

“Gervais?”

“Gervais! You know, like the cheese!”

“No I don’t know, I have no idea what that is, and how is that relevant? We are trying to pick out a vacation spot and you are yelling cheese at me!”

“First of all Gervais is always relevant, it is delicious and fancy! Second, don’t you think it would be a great name for a baby?”

“Gervais?”

“Gervais!”

“For who?”

“For us! When we have kids, it sounds exotic!”

“You want to name our future kid after cheese because it sounds exotic? What about duckbill platypus? That’s pretty exotic!”

“What was that name that Phoebe changed hers to?”

“Wasn’t that … Banana Hammock something?”

“CONSUELA!”

“YEAH!” They said together

“So, you would be ok with naming our child Consuela Banana Hammock?” He asked

She took in a exasperated breath and said “I think you are getting ahead of yourself, don t you think we should get married before we start thinking about kid names?”

“You’re right,” he opened up the desk drawer that separated them and pulled out a grey velvet box and dropped to one knee. “Maria, will you do me the honor of marrying me, even if I want to name our future child after an exotic cheese?”
