“I go through people too quickly. It’s like how I eat ice cream. I’ve got this big bowl, I love it so much, I can’t get enough, I want to be eating it constantly, so I eat it too fast. And then it’s gone. And sometimes I eat so much so quickly it makes me sick. I can’t sleep.”
CHARLOTTE: I heard you were pregnant! Are you excited? When are you due? How are you feeling? Do you have morning sickness? My mom says you need to eat every 4 hours, and that will help the nausea.
RACHEL: No, that won’t help! Vitamin B6 will help with the morning sickness.
OLIVIA: I met someone and might have a thing going.
OLIVIA: It’s still too early to tell.
BOBBY: A nice boy?
OLIVIA: You got half of it right.
BOBBY: A mean boy?
