"You wouldn't know VO is VO?"

I have 2 chefs talking about the proper cooking temperature for scrambled eggs as they crack the egss and then start frying them in a pan. In my first pass it's sync dialogue. In my next pass I use the sync of them talking as VO behind the sound of the eggs frying in the pan. Now it's VO and the actual frying sound, which had been sync at one point, is now EFX as I use it over a later shot of the eggs frying. A clip started as sync dialogue, then became part vo, part EFX. How often do I do this? All the time, maybe 30 - 40% of the show ends up like this depending on how much I have to compress time. The problem with roles is I never know which part will remain sync dialogue and which will end up as VO plus EFX. Which is easier, constantly changing roles after I move the clips, or just moving the clips?
