Shouldn’t it be “aren’t”, instead?

Thank you for your suggestions.

Bob lost, but then said he was broke. Paul shook his head and sneered. "I know you're stingy. You've always been. Come on, I'll stand you a dinner. You'll pay me back in the afterlife."

"Thanks, mate," Bob said blushing, "I feel ashamed when I think about how many times you've bought me meals and drinks."

"No worries," Paul said. "As I recall, there is a saying, 'Where two can eat, there is enough for three.' I hate to eat alone anyway."

correct
