Girl: Definitely, otherwise, l will be short 6 credits. l have no choice.
Boy: Yeah, me too.This is the second summer.'ll have to take classes. I gotta go now, my Shakespeare class starts in twenty minutes.
这个对话主要还是两个going to be teacher的学生的对话，估计目前的状态在研究生，女生说了她要拿master degree，所有他们作为同期生，现在的身份应该是under graduate。他们都有谈到选课的情况，男生提到了一个诗歌的club，他希望女生参加，但很遗憾，sunday night她要doing homework，没空。而这个club的活动一般都是每个月的最后一个星期天，由学生或professor来read some poems，来者并不一定要读，直接在那里听也行。
男生有提到他要做的事情太多了，比如writing a class for junior high，所以他必须要辞职掉他咖啡店的兼职。然后他还提及summer还要上选修课，女生也要上，不然她会缺6个学分，she has no choice but to do it。
