Ted:Hey, random question. How do you feel about cats?
Victoria:Cats. Hated the musical, love the animal.
Why did VIctoria said about musical and animal? What does that mean? Does that mean she is a cat person?
Ted prefaced the question by saying that it was a random question and Victoria answered it in a similar manner.
If you ask a silly question, then you will get a silly answer.
But it wasn't really a random question. Ted's friends were pointing out to him how little he knew about Victoria. Whether someone prefers dogs or cats is a pretty basic question. If one person likes cats and the other person can't stand them, then there would be a serious conflict if the two ever decided to cohabitate.
