“Dine like an Iraqi”? What does that even mean? And how has she been doing that? I assume we’re supposed to think they’ve been in this coffee shop more than once, apparently. I don’t think I’d call “doing schoolwork in a coffee shop while drinking coffee” any kind of dining at all, let alone Iraqi style dining. Or are they actually going out to dinners now? Because I don’t think Rachel would be thrilled with that. Actually, being a female character written by Tom Batiuk, “thrilled” is probably exactly how she’d react. And Wally has actually lived in Iraq. I have a feeling he would have learned how to “dine like an Iraqi” then.
Also, Wally apparently had no plans to see his daughter, who lives in the same town as him, on Thanksgiving. I really, really hope at some point he tells Rana “how Americans do” something. What a goofy guy.
