Steph:  Have you seen Napoleon Dynamite yet?

Derek:  Ya know. I haven’t seen that. I’ve been hearing lots of recommendations on it though.

Steph:  Well, I don’t wanna give away the storyline, but it was a great movie.

Derek:  That’s what I’ve heard.

Steph:  Yeah. The main character is just so quirky.

Derek:  Yeah. I saw some previews for it. And, yeah, it looks like he would be a little bit quirky and pretty funny actually.

Steph:  Yeah. It was. Afterwards, I kept on, ya know, coming up with lines from the movie and using it on my friends.

Derek:  Oh yeah? I got another friend that was listening to quotes from the movie on the internet.

Steph:  Yeah. A lot of places just compile them so you can use them and memorize them.

Derek:  Exactly.

Has it ever happened to you that someone gave away the storyline of a movie? That has happened to me before and it drives me crazy!
When you are going to talk about a movie, you should ask the other person if they have seen it yet.
Then you won’t give away anything or spoil the movie for your friend.
