-->'''Sommelier''': Sir, we have several reds. Would you prefer something opulent, or might you be one who prefers his wine ::dismissive chuckle:: fruit-forward?
-->'''Frank''': As a connoisseur, you'll find I have very specific tastes. I seek a wine with structure and stability and backbone. Something brooding, but which won't tell me what's on its mind. A wine that's superior. Haughty. Withholding. I want a wine so fickle and baffling that I'll wake up at 3 in the morning with my fingers already fumbling for the dial of my phone to ask it what I've done wrong! I want a wine that disapproves of every choice I've made! Bring me a wine that insults me to my face and ''makes me like it!''
-->::beat::
-->'''Sommelier''': Ah. A French wine, then.
