· What did he/she say she did?
· Why would I care?
· Did he/she want something?

For something that's usually worn once for a single occasion, tuxedos are rather expensive. Buying even the most basic tuxedo can cost hundreds of dollars.
The other option is renting a tuxedo, which Garcia also has complaints…
