Chick on cell: I mean, when it’s just the two of us, he’s re­al­ly gay — and I’m talk­ing gay­er than you — and frankly, that’s gay… And I don’t un­der­stand why he can’t just be that gay on stage… So hey, did you hear about that plane crash? Yeah… yeah… yeah, New York­ers are re­al­ly sen­si­tive to planes crash­ing in­to build­ings — some­thing must have hap­pened a while ago or some­thing… Yeah, so I think I’m go­ing to have sex with that guy from Craigslist… Al­though, he is ten years old­er than me, so if he’s look­ing for com­mit­ment he can have sex with me while he’s look­ing… It is not trashy — you can’t do any­thing trashy in your ear­ly 20s. I still have four more years un­til I have to even start think­ing about be­ing too trashy… Hey, can I call you back? I have to call my mom.

Lati­na on cell: I’ll fuck­ing kill him. I will. I’ll fuck­ing kill him. I don’t know. No. He’s not. I just hate it that he thinks he can treat you like that. I mean, I’ll fuck­ing kill him even though he’s a man, you know? I’ll fuck­ing walk up to him and, like, stab him or some­thing. Fuck yeah, I got a knife. I mean, maybe he’s gay, though. That must be it. He’s gay. No, no, no. He’s gay.. He has to be. No, I know he is. It’s a fact. That’s the on­ly thing that makes sense, right? I mean, what oth­er op­tion is there?
