When you’re bored, do you take pictures of yourself and your friends? Ever since digital cameras made it so we can take as many photos as we want and look at them right away, taking pictures of yourself for no reason has become a common way to pass the time.

Last week on the soap opera, Dale gave Marni a little kiss and they unofficially started dating. Watch as they take snapshots of themselves. It’s fun at first, but suddenly gets a little too serious…

3. Watch - Watch the video without reading the dialog.

Dale:  Cheese!

Marni:  Cheese!

Dale:  Oh, that’s gonna work. I think this is going to be a perfect one.

Marni:  Let’s see it.

Dale:  See?

Marni:  Oh, that’s cute.

Dale:  Yeah. That’s gonna be perfect for our Christmas card. My cousins, on the East Coast are gonna love this picture.

Marni:  Oh. OK.

Dale:  Yeah. Don’t you think so?

Marni:  It’s a great photo. Uh, but…

Dale:  You know what I also think would be good? My mom and dad are very sentimental. They would love this when we do our wedding pictures on the slideshow.

Marni:  Wedding pictures?

Dale:  They’re gonna love ‘em. You know, my mom loves wedding pictures and I know that when she sees this picture, she’s gonna cry.

Marni:  Uh…

Dale:  Uh, I can feel it right now. Don’t you think so? What about your parents? What are your parents gonna do? Do you think they’re gonna do anything like that?

Marni:  I…Uh…Um…

Dale:  If you don’t like the picture…do you…Are you OK? Are you alright?

Marni:  I think I might need some water.

Dale:  OK. I’ll get you water.

Marni:  That would be great. Thanks.

Dale:  I’ll be right back.

Marni:  Oh my God. Oh my God! Wedding photos? This is going way too fast. I cannot…Christmas cards? I mean, Christmas is, like, almost a month…six months away and now he’s talking about wedding photos. This is crazy. This is crazy. This is going too fast. Oh my God. I’m going to hyperventilate. OK.

Dale and Marni shout “cheese!” because they are taking a picture and it’s impossible not to smile when you say, “cheese!”

It’s a cool photo, so Dale decides he’d like to use it for a Christmas card. But Marni and Dale just started dating! And it’s still summertime!

Marni starts to get upset so she asks Dale to get her some water. While he’s gone, she talks to herself about how the relationship is moving too fast.

Have you ever gone too fast in a relationship? Do you like to take pictures of yourself and your friends?
