Guy: ..so I guess Brooklyn is the 4th largest city in America, so it's not that different than Chicago...
College guy: Why do you think you're more mature than me? What about that time you made out with that guy at that bar? Or when you slept with him in the backseat of his car?

Woman #1: She got married again.
Woman #2: She did? Oh that's good, 'cause she was a straight ho.
Chick #1: My new favorite way to waste time at work is to go to the weddingchannel.com and look up people from high school and see if they're getting married. Then, when I find out their fiance's name, I look them up on Friendster.
Chick #2: That's awesome. Judging other people's fiances is so fun.
Guy 1: Hey, I need you there tomorrow...don't drink too much.
Guy 2: I won't, but I'm still gonna have about a dozen beers.
Guy 1: well, that's okay. That's still in the realm of reality.
Undercover cop to an unhappy teenaged boy: You're gonna be on fucking drugs forever! For-EVER, man!
