alice: you did a great job on your project ted.
ted: thank you.
alice: you are most welcome.
ted: wait. why do i have a sense of dread and foreboding? it isn't like you to give out generous compliments. this feels like a trap. you're lulling me into a false sense of security. you plan to sabotage my career to make yourself look better by comparison.
ted yelling: you monster!
boss: what's this all about?
alice thinking: that worked out.
