While talking about the movie Air:

Abbas: I wanna say something about the film that might get me into a bit of trouble.

Nainika: No, go ahead. Please, I wanna hear it before we start the actual review.

Abbas: I thought Air was such a guy movie. 

Nainika: I didn’t think it was a guy movie.

Abbas: It’s dudes talking about basketball and shoes. It’s got every successful hit song of the 80s. It’s dudes brainstorming about shoes in a room.

Nainika: OK, Abbas. OK. 

Abbas: And talking about sport. I was like, wow; I can feel the testosterone flowing.

Nainika: OK, we have to unpack this.

Nainika bursts out laughing.
