“And… time!” Carlisle says as the timer goes off. “I hope everyone has their answers ready,” he says sending meaningful glances over to Emmett and Jasper. “I’m going to mix it up a little and start with Edward and Bella-- I mean Team Edward and Bella,” he corrects himself when he sees that Edward and Bella were about to correct him. He wants to start with them first because they were probably going to be the most boring. He wants to save the best for last. “Okay, Edward, what do you think Bella’s favorite food is?”
“I am going to say that Bella’s favorite food is rare steak,” Edward answers.
“Rare steak? What the?” Bella asks.
“Yes,” Edward says. Something about her reaction seems to bother him. “You seemed very excited at the thought of a rare steak earlier.” Oh, so that’s his reasoning.
“No Edward. I just preferred a steak over ice cream. For some reason I’ve been wanting to try that A1 sauce that they always advertise on T.V. I mean really, is it that much better than barbecue? I don’t believe it could be,” she explains.
“Actually, I think it is. I had it at the Lodge last week and, boy, it was delicious,” one of the random girls in the audience says.
“Oh, really?” Bella asks her. “Because I really think that nothing can beat barbecue when it comes to meat sauces.”
“A1 does,” the random girl says back.
“Hmmm, very interesti-”
“Enough about the A1 verses barbecue, people! Can we please get back to the show?” Carlisle exclaims. He doesn’t seem to be very patient. He must really want to see what Emmett and Jasper’s answers were. “Okay. Moving on to Team A.J. Jasper, what do you think Alice’s favorite food is?” Carlisle asks him, looking very excited. He needs to get a life.
“Sushi?” Alice asks. “Why sushi?”
“Alice must have seen the board again. Alice, you have got to stop doing that!” Carlisle quickly covers for Alice’s mistake… again!
“Oops. Sorry. But why sushi?”
“Well, Alice, remember that time when we went to that Japanese restaurant and you said that sushi tasted so good? That you could live on it? Remember?” Jasper asks her. He starts stressing his eyes, trying to get Alice to play along.
“Huh? Oh yeah! Now I remember. You’re right, Jasper. Sushi is my favorite food,” Alice says, playing along with the act.
“What?! What?!” Carlisle starts yelling. This could not be happening! Jasper didn’t even look nervous that it wouldn’t have worked! There is so much wrong with this picture!
After realizing what he had just exclaimed, Carlisle quickly tries to come up with a cover-up story. “I mean I didn’t think you would remember that Jasper, it was so long ago. What a great memory. Moving on now. Emmett, what do you think Rosalie’s favorite food is?”
Emmett turns over his board to reveal… CAVIAR!
“Caviar? Caviar?! You cannot be serious! Caviar?!” Rosalie exclaims.
“Ummm, you’re right. I’m not serious,” Emmett says, realizing he had put down a bad answer, yet again.
“No no no. you are serious. Now I want to know why. Why do you think my favorite food is caviar!” Rosalie exclaims. Now it was finally getting to the good part that Carlisle had hoped would come out of this question.
“No, actually, I really don’t think you do, Rosalie,” Emmett tells her timidly.
“Yes I do,” Rosalie argues back. “Why did you pick that?!”
“You really want to know?” Emmett asks doubtfully.
“That’s what I’ve been saying, isn’t it?” Rosalie answers.
“Okay. I chose caviar because… well, because… because I think I remember hearing it being mentioned in the movie ‘Titanic’.”
“‘Titanic’?” Rosalie asks.
“Emmett, just because the character Rose and I have sort of the same name, that doesn’t mean that we like the same foods.”
Emmett seems to have just thought of that when she mentioned it. “Yes, that was exactly my reasoning on that answer,” Emmett tries to convince her. “I’m so sorry I thought that.”
“Wait a minute. That wasn’t the reason you thought of the ‘Titanic’, was it?” Rosalie asks him.
“Yes it was,” Emmett is quick to say. A little too quick.
“No it wasn’t.” Rosalie doesn’t believe him.
“Yes it wa-” Emmett is cut short by Edward.
“Oh my gosh Emmett! Get over Celine Dion already! It is never going to happen!”
“This is about Celine Dion?!” Rosalie exclaims. “I should’ve known. Why can’t you just be happy with me?!”
“Oh, Rosalie, I am happy with you. It’s just that, that voice! It’s so beautiful! Unlike anything I’ve ever heard before.”
“But, don’t you think my voice is pretty, too?” Rosalie asks, a little hurt.
“Yes, your voice is pretty, Rosalie, but nobody can match Celine. It’s just like trying to go a week without playing Guitar Hero. It just can’t be done,” Emmett says to her.
“I guess. But, if there ever was a chance that Celine Dion wanted you, would you choose her over me?”
“I can’t answer that question, Rosalie,” Emmett tells her.
“Because everyone is looking like they’re ready to kill me right now, and I think it’s because I brought up Celine again so I think that I should just shut up right now,” Emmett tells her.
“Thank you!” Carlisle exclaims along with the rest of the people in the room.
“Really, Emmett, you should be happy to have Rosalie. She is the most beautiful girl in the whole school, next to Bella of course,” Mike yells from the audience.
“Humans are never satisfied,” one of the random girls says to him.
“So true,” Mike says back.
“Onto the next question,” Carlisle says. “This question is, as you might have figured out, is for the girls to answer. It is ‘If you could change one thing about your spouse, and one thing only, what would it be?’ Start answering… come on timer work. I just bought you yesterday so you’d better work. Why aren’t you working?!” Carlisle yells at the timer. It doesn’t seem to be working.
“I told you that something was wrong with it if you got it for only 10 cents.” Esme calls from the audience.
“I know. I know. I should have listened to you. Ugh! Does anyone have a watch?” Carlisle asks the audience.
“I do!” A girl sitting next to the A1 girl calls to him.
“Can I borrow it?” Carlisle asks her.
“Sure,” she answers, but remains in the same spot.
“Can you bring it up to me?” Carlisle asks her.
“Well, if you haven’t noticed, I’m kind of in a wheelchair, so I can’t exactly get up onto the stage,” she tells him.
“Oh,” Carlisle says, suddenly realizing that she was, indeed, in a wheelchair. He makes his way down the stage and over to the girl to receive the watch. “Thank you. I will give it back to you at the end of the show,” he tells her.
“Okay. Just don’t forget. It cost me all of my baby sitting money.”
“Okay. I won’t,” Carlisle tells her, then makes his way back up onto the stage. “Now this will be different,” he says to himself. “Okay, start answering the question-- wait for it. Wait for it-- now!”
The girls begin writing furiously on they’re boards. They must really want to change some stuff.
