NICK: Not that kind of genius.
ME: What kind?
NICK: The Nick kind.

Nick wanders into the bedroom with his iPhone, after an evening of exhausting iPadding:

ME: Oh, look—it’s the return of the repressed.

ME: You haven’t looked at it once all night.
NICK: Well, they say the iPad really extends the battery life on the iPhone.
