(Girls, watching a performance in a public park.)

Girl 1: So, you know what’s way better than all of us having sex together?

Girl 2: Playing with our fake puppies.

Girl 1: Yup.

(Three girls sitting on futons at a party)

Girl 1: You know “Groundhog Day”?

Girl 2: Wait, that’s the one with the newspaper guy, right? And the sled?

Girl 3: No. No, that’s “Citizen Kane.”

(A guy, talking to a girl in Friendly’s.)

Guy: Listen, I’m chivalrous, but I’m not a martyr. I’m not gonna give you my cherry just because you ask for it.

(Girl, talking to her boyfriend in an apartment hallway.)

Girl: Put the hat on and turn around. Please?

Guy: Why?

Girl: When I can’t see your face, I can fantasize that you’re Mr. Darcy.

(A woman, yelling from behind a McDonald’s counter)

Woman: Okay, boy! We are going nowhere until you give me my money!

Young boy: It’s not about money! It’s about my pride!

(Two guys, sitting in some athletic bleachers.)

Guy 1: I can’t go, I’ve gotta show up at my sister’s graduation.

Guy 2: Oh. Yeah, me too. Well, I have to go to my sisters “fail-to-graduate-then-lock-herself-in-her-room-screaming-and-eating-Cheezits-until-we-buy-her-a-new-puppy.” We had one last year.

(Three guys, arguing loudly in a pizza restaurant.)

Guy 1: Genghis Khan.

Guy 2: Teddy Roosevelt.

Guy 3: Patton.

Guy 2: Uh, Nikola Tesla.

Guy 1: Abraham Lincoln?

Guy 3: Bill Nye the Science Guy.


Guy 1: Fine. You win.

(Two girls talking from the other side of a gas pump.)

Girl: You know, I feel like everyone I see at a gas station is a hooker.

(Guy, pulling up to the sidewalk in a pickup truck.)

Guy: Man, what are you doing? Get in here, dude, we’re hitting up the Timex museum!

(Guy and a girl, walking down a busy main road.)

Guy: Wait, it’s called “All’s Well That Ends Well”?

Girl: It’s Shakespeare!

Guy: Bulls***. What, did he write “Look Both Ways Before Crossing The Street” too?

(Guy, standing in front of a mall parking lot, on a cell phone.)

Guy: I’m in the parking garage. No, the parking garage … ! How stupid are you? Come on!
