"...See, my revenge for that is going to be very, very sweet," said Polly, grinning.  "Oh, I shall savor it.  Kind of like this food, actually..."

Soon enough dinner was done and you all were sitting around talking.

"I hate to bring this up...but is this Dutch or not?" Jo asked.

"I've got you for this one," said Polly.  "Need to economize for a while, though."

"It's a good thing there's a forest right by the school for picnics," Jo said. "We'll just have to raid the cafeteria."

"Wearing headbands and eyepatches!" Polly proposed.  "What?  Still on land?  Fine.  Hand axes and horned helmets!"

She knew, of course, that Vikings never wore horned helmets, but that was hardly the point.

"That seems impractical," Alice said.

"They're joking," Kendra explained.

"Ah. You must teach me humour sometime," Alice said.

"Don't worry if it's tricky at first," said Polly.  "Understanding humor is the first step, and even some humans have trouble with it."

"So... after food, do we want to catch a movie or something?" asked Polly.

"What's playing?" Jo asked.

"This would be the first time that I have seen a movie in the theatre," Alice said.

Re: Los Angeles
Given how you're in LA, there are tons and tons of choices. Every genre and everything from big budget studio films to low budget indie.

"...Let's see.  First date for you two calls for comedy or action.  Or comedy-action.  How does that sound?" said Polly.

"Naturally," said Polly.  "Which is pretty impressive for a comedy-action movie, if you think about it."

"We've got about an hour," said Polly.  "So we can start going in that direction, hang out, talk, handle awkward questions from Alice, whatever."

Polly chuckled.

"No, they're fine, Alice.  I'm sorry-- I'm just teasing you.  It's meant to be friendly.  But you should definitely ask all the questions you like, all right?  It's a good way to learn."

Soon enough it was time to head to the theatre. It seems you got there in record time, because after you bought the tickets, there was still about forty five minutes until show time.

"Is it normal to eat and watch a movie?" Alice asked.

"Of course!" Kendra said. "Let's get some popcorn and M&Ms. Oh! And some soda too."

"Shame about the prices, but that's how movie theaters actually show a profit," said Polly, getting in line for snacks.
