Biology freshman likes pushing girlfriend around, doesn't mind wearing dirty clothes
Wildcat: My name's Nathan. You guys are on the spot. (To McKendry) I saw you punching her. (To Dempsey) Do you need me to help you? (To McKendry) What's going on? Not afraid to hit a girl?
McKendry: It's a going back and forth joke. This is my girlfriend, so ...
Wildcat: I know. I realize that. I'm just joshin' around. In a moment of vanity, 'cause usually I interview other people ... could you guys ask me questions? I'd like to talk about myself. It has to be something zesty, with panache.
Dempsey: Ask him something zesty.
McKendry: Oh man. On the spot, big time.
Wildcat: And it can be personal.
Dempsey: Do you have a girlfriend?
Wildcat: No, I don't. But when I do, I'll be sure to do what he does and like, bump chests.
Dempsey: And push her around into metal objects! Sweet. Yeah.
Wildcat: That seems to be the way to get them and hold onto them. So where are you guys going right now?
McKendry: Just back to the dorms.
Dempsey: Do laundry.
Wildcat: I've never lived in a dorm. Is it difficult to go to the whole Laundromat thing?
Dempsey: I haven't done it yet.
McKendry: First time.
Wildcat: How long can you last before you have to go to the Laundromat?
Dempsey: I think I'm going to do laundry every week.
McKendry: I'll probably go every week, but if I wanted to push it, I could go probably a week and a half, two weeks.
Wildcat: Turn your stuff inside out?
McKendry: Yeah. Double wearing.
Wildcat: (pointing to plastic bag) You went to the bookstore?
Dempsey: This is my business book.
Wildcat: Like four years ago, they used to actually put cool stuff, like deodorant, in there. And bars of soap.
Wildcat: Yeah. And I'd always put it in my bag when I'd go to the Rec Center. But now they just give a receipt and a magazine subscription.
