Working with accents

As we all know, the hardest of English is its huge variety of accents. Like everywhere, they can vary depending on the speaker's pronunciation. To challenge your listening and comprehension, I've taken this fragment from the famous TV series Gilmore Girls. The action takes place in a cafe where several characters talk. Pay attention to what they say and the funny situations created around them. Try to answer these questions:
a-Can you make a list of items taken out from the woman's bag?
b-What is the relationship between them?
c-What's the boy trying to do while he's talking to the girl?
Their dialogues are sharp so, please, don't forget to post the points you'd like to be checked. By the way, I hope you like this TV series. It's one of my favourites!
