STEVE INSKEEP, HOST:

Good morning, I'm Steve Inskeep.

Brooklyn writer Kyle Ayers says he was on his apartment rooftop when he witnessed a breakup. A man and woman were fighting so he live-tweeted their words. And we now re-enact, cleaned up versions of key lines.

RENEE MONTAGNE, HOST:

I'm not looking for marriage, just what's right below marriage.

INSKEEP: Your roommates are jerks.

MONTAGNE: Then don't let me live with them.

INSKEEP: Calling people immature is immature.

MONTAGNE: I guess I'm the only one who doesn't realize how awesome you are.

INSKEEP: It's MORNING EDITION.
