    I have two questions.
    I wonder why she said "Einstein".
    I wonder why he doesn't like pistachio.

    Re: Einstein/Pistachio

    She's calling him "Einstein" in a sarcastic tone that indicates that he is not brilliant, but in fact stupid.

    Why he doesn't like pistachio is not really important. That pistachio is the flavor of the green ice cream cone she dumped on his head is.
