(A girl and her boyfriend at a large restaurant table.)
Girl: He’s really wonderful. He doesn’t speak a lot of English, though. Right, honey? Not so much English?
Boyfriend: *shrug, smile of confusion*
(Sad girl, on the phone.)
Girl: I know. I should really stop dating boys when I realize they’re evil overlords.
(A bunch of people sitting around a campfire.)
Girl 1: Marshmallows are kinda gross, when you think about it.
Girl 2: I think it’s a good kind of gross. Like tiny, edible fat people.
(A cell phone is ringing.)
Girl (answering phone): I’m running circles around you! Say goodbye to your kneecaps, chucklehead!
(Boy, girl, sitting on couches.)
Boy: And what’s really great about Michigan is that you can always take a train from Hartford to Chicago.
Girl: I’m sorry, but what are you talking about?
(In a deserted parking lot at 2 a.m., a guy pokes his head out of a car.)
Guy: Hey… hey! Are you guys eating Taco Bell, too?
(Gym employee greeting a student.)
Employee: All right! The gym! Are you ready to kick some ass?
Student: Um, sorry? Do you need my ID?
Employee: You gotta kick ass, bro!
Student: I don’t know. Sorry.
Employee: Okay, fine, let me see your ID. Go do pilates or whatever.
(Couple at a restaurant.)
Waiter: What can I get you started with?
Guy: Could I just have the bruschetta?
Girl: I’m fine. I don’t eat. I mean, I’m not hungry.
(Two guys in an office.)
Guy 1: Okay. Joke. What’s the most important part of comedy?
Guy 2: Uh, I don’t -
Guy 1: *kicks the guy hard in the shins*
(Two girls, at a lunch table, with sandwiches.)
Girl 1: So… what do you think?
Girl 2 (chewing sandwich): Oh my god.
Girl 1: Teddy Grahams, right?
(Girl, on the phone.)
Girl: Yeah, it’ll be fine, you guys can come over. My dad’s drinking again.
(Two girls, planning… something.)
Girl 1: I think we can do it. We’ll just have to move the ducks.
Girl 2: God. Your brother is such a jerk.
(A couple yelling from across a pond.)
Girl: CAN YOU ALL PLEASE STOP FISHING? I’M TRYING TO GET NAKED IN NATURE!
