You get a little leeway when you are writing dialog. When the software sees a comparative adjective, it looks for what is being compared. This isn't relevant to your application, but the software isn't that smart. 

Your dialog has a comma splice. This is joining two independent clauses with only a comma. I'd put a semicolon or make it two sentences.
