Junior has uncommon last name, likes poker and pool but isn't wild about Will Smith naked

Wildcat: Hey, I'm Kylee and you're On the Spot. Is that really your last name?

Engineer: That is my last name. I think one of my stories go ... I think my great grandfather was an engineer on a ship or something so that's how I got my name. He had some other name, but they just called him engineer or something.

Wildcat: Where are you from?

Engineer: I'm from Bombay. In India.

Wildcat: So it's not a very common name in Bombay?

Engineer: Well, it is among Zoroastrians. It's not that common. There are Engineers, yeah, but it's not that common though, no.

Wildcat: Are you an engineer?

Engineer: No.

Wildcat: Do you want to be one?

Engineer: No.

Wildcat: Why not?

Engineer: Because I don't know the first thing about it.

Wildcat: So, back to the original questions. Do you ever play poker?

Engineer: Yes, I play poker. I first learned at my dorm actually. And I watch that stuff on TV all the time and I play poker occasionally. In fact I played two days ago at a friend's place.

Wildcat: Have you participated in the poker tournament today?

Engineer: No, but I played in the pool tournament like a semester ago. I came second and I lost to a really, really good player.

Wildcat: What would it take to get you to play strip poker?

Engineer: Hot girls.

Wildcat: Would you play me right now? Am I hot enough for you?

Engineer: Do I really have to answer that? Because you're putting me on a real spot there.

Wildcat: Well, if I played and I won, what would you give me?

Engineer: I don't know. What kind of prize do you want?

Wildcat: OK, well if you won, what prize would you want?

Engineer: Hmmm. Lots of money.

Wildcat: Are you prudish around nudity? Is that why you gave away your ticket to "I, Robot"?

Engineer: No, I just didn't want to go and see it. I wanted to play pool instead.

Wildcat: You didn't want to see Will Smith naked?

Engineer: Well, I've seen "Troy" and that has Brad Pitt naked.
