The Four Questions are pretty, witty, and bright

Q. What is Dave wearing?

A. Dave is wearing jeans and a light blue polo shirt. He looks quite dashing.

Q. What kind of mood is Dave in?

A. Dave feels cheated.

Q. What are the factors affecting Dave’s mood?

A. Dave says that he wants to sit in one of the comfy chairs at Starbucks, but two of the chairs are currently occupied by people who don't appear to have purchased anything at Starbucks! Both of them are drinking Arizona iced teas. David can only assume that they are time travelers from the late 1980s, when Arizona iced teas were trendy, and need a place to sit because time travel is a very tiresome activity. That's the only way to explain their gall.

Q. What are Dave's plans for the weekend?

A. Dave has a dilemma tonight. He's eager to see "Watchmen," yet he feels obligated to go to shul because he hasn't been in a long time. Perhaps Dave can convince the rabbi to move tonight's services to the movie theater. I have always thought that the Amidah could use some special effects.
