Rahul: imagine all the heart shape balloons wearing glasses

Sapna: now everyone who gives a balloon must give glasses too
Atul: imagine the guys who sell those balloons..balloons in one hand glasses in the other hand
Anjali: heights of imagination man!!
Armaan: and guess wats the problem with its eyes...shortsightedness!!
Muskaan: y that
Armaan: bcoz it cant see future problems...cant see the problems coming far down the lane
Sapna: dont tell me u still think the same about love
Armaan: ofcourse...wat will change my opinion
Ridhima: [OH NO!! not after all this!! back to square one??!! is he still the same??]
(she gets a bit scared about her feelings now...looking at him with questions in her eyes..he is just looking at her..without any expression)
Muskaan: jab tak pyaar hota nahi sab yahi kehte hain
Armaan: no way!! i wont dig my own grave
Ridhima: [ then why does he behave like that with me?? is that all just flirting?? God..why is he so confusing??]
