Asian chick: What? Jodie Fos­ter was a child star?
In­di­an chick: Yeah. She was a child pros­ti­tute at like, 13, and they made a movie about it and every­thing.

In­di­an chick: Look­it that chart. They’re rank­ing con­doms, see? Tro­jan Mag­num, then Reg­u­lar Tro­jans, then Tro­jan Ul­tra Sheer, then Durex Reg­u­lar, then Lifestyles, and then Lifestyle Ul­tra-Sen­si­tive, see?

In­di­an chick: They just come out cool­er, that’s all.
