Girl: Fried white anchovies and gazpacho are more macho than a nacho.
Professor: Now you're just being obnoxious.
Girl: Steamed clams, ma'am, with a bocadillo of that damn Serrano ham — and it's no flimflam scam, tapas are $6 to $14 and can be eaten on the lam.
Professor: Okay, maybe we should break for lunch.
Girl: Spanish wines, cavas, and queso Manchego. Let's take the Winnebago, Diego.
