Sarcasm e.g Katherine calls Crossroads Cafe a "glamorous establishment" and Mr. Brashov says, "I don't like to break up this momentous occasion..." when referring to Henry and Sara announcing they are dating (when everyone already knew).
In this episode, the characters often use the phrase "going together" to describe their romantic relationship. For example, "We're going together." However, this is a very usual usage. People are more likely to say, "We're going out." or "We're together". or "We're a couple." or "We're boyfriend and girlfriend/partners." This is to also make clear that the couple is exclusive and not casually dating. The phrase "to go with" is also outdated. The common phrase is "to go out with" or "to date".
Present Continuous e.g Jess: "I see they're repainting the lines int he parking lot." Mr. Brashov: "They're doing what?" Jess: "Rearranging them. Making them diagonal rather than straight".
