2. (n) a talk in which two people, generally of different sexes, discuss what they are in relation to each other, what they want from each other, and what they are going to do about it. Also awkward, embarrassing, and painful, but for different reasons.
1. My dad and I had The Talk last night. He figured it was about time, since I just started dating Sarah.
2. Emerson totally wants Bianca. It's rather sad. They should have The Talk so that he can move on.
