Girlfriend: It's not that bad, surely? There are still three more matches to turn it around. Joe Root said we're still in with a shout.

Girlfriend: Come on, we could still win the next match. Perth is a nice city.
Boyfriend: We've only ever won once at the WACA, and that was forty years ago.
Girlfriend: I'm not going to be able to cheer you up, am I?
