Lucy:  I don't know how to say goodbye.

Jeff:  How about so long, I’m outta here, “I’m leaving on a jet plane” and “in 10 minutes I’ll be late for the door”?

Lucy:  No, that’s not what I mean. I mean that it’s hard to say goodbye to something after such a long time. I’ve had a very happy time here.

Jeff:  What you really mean to say is, “Parting is such sweet sorrow.” But, “it’s better to have loved and lost than never to have loved at all.” “I, I, will always love you.”

Lucy:  Stop! Listen, what I want to express is a fond farewell and optimism for the future.

Jeff:  Ah, okay! Then you should say: Tomorrow is the first day of the rest of my life! I’m off to bigger and better things! I’m blowing this pop stand!

Lucy:  No, no, no. That’s not right at all. I want to end with some meaningful parting words, something sincere, something from my heart.

Jeff:  Like, “May the force be with you”?

Lucy:  Hmm…how about, “Live long and prosper”?

Jeff:  Now are you ready to leave?

Lucy:  I guess so. It’s been a blast.

Jeff:  It’s been a hoot.

Lucy:  It’s been an honor and a pleasure.

Jeff:  Adiós.

Lucy:  Au revoir.

Jeff:  Sayonara.

Lucy:  Zàijiàn. Zoi gin.

Jeff:  Ciao.

Lucy:  Auf Wiedersehen.

Jeff:  Proshchay.

Lucy:  Tchau.

Jeff:  Wadaeaan.

Lucy:  Annyeong.

Jeff:  Toodle loo!

Lucy & Jeff:  Thank you and goodbye.
