Make up an excuse

Big, fat liar
Ben: Hey, dude. I’m so glad I ran into you! I’m going to a club opening tonight. Want to join us?

Ben: Wait, you’re going to lie to her?

Jackson: Okay, boo. Well, I’ll call you tomorrow, okay?
Kara: Alright, bye.
Jackson: Alright, I’m in. Now, make sure you don’t tell anybody about this.

Jackson: No, don’t change the subject. I thought you were going to stay home and watch a movie! I can’t believe you would lie to my face like that!
Kara: Me, what about you? You said you were sick! You’re just a big fat liar!
Jackson: Well, look who’s talking…
