You Show Great Re­straint for a New York­er

Tourist: Why does every­one on this train look so sad? Every­body looks like they’re hav­ing the worst day. [To girl sit­ting next to him] Are you hav­ing a bad day?
Girl: No.
Tourist: Prob­a­bly be­cause it’s so cold here. Is it al­ways so cold here?
Girl: No. It’s re­al­ly cold for March.
Tourist: It’s too cold to go swim­ming, is­n’t it?
Girl: Yes.
Tourist: Oh, well. We’re head­ed up­town. What do you think my chances of see­ing Woody Allen are?
Girl: Very slim.
