Dear forum users, again little help needed. Taken from the series Smallville, season 6.

Man and women comes back from the ball and there are dialogue.

W: This is definitely a night of firsts.
M: How's that?
W: Well, it's the first time I've ever danced in my extremely pretentious fountain. And it's the first time I've ever felt this satisfied.

In reality there are not scene where they dancing in the fountain and I can not understand how the fountain can be "extremely pretentious"?

Thank you in advance.

    Does her dress resemble a fountain of water?

    It is charity ball and all guests are costumed. Women is dressed like Cleopatra and man as Romanian legionary.

    According to the transcript I found, it's the man who says those words.
    Yes, you are right. I messed up with speaking order. Not that these words are any clearer now... :(

    Man: This is definitely a night of firsts.
    Woman: How's that?
