Kinda Like the Whole God/Abraham Thing

Dude: Did you see that homeless guy’s sign? It said he wanted money for a hooker.
Chick: Really?
Dude: Yeah… Do you think a hooker has to sleep with a homeless guy if he has the money?
Chick: I don’t know…
Dude: Well, I guess if her pimp tells her she has to then she has to.

From The Sensuous Nazi

Girl #1: What would you do if a guy took you to a hotel for Valentine’s Day?
Girl #2: I guess I’d be like, ‘Oh, how sweet…’ Get into bed… Then shove a glass vase up his ass and run away. Naked. If he moved the glass vase would break and tear up his asshole, and he’d be pooping shards of glass out for a week.

–Park Slope

Or the Last Viking Unicorn?

NYU bimbette #1: Yeah, see, I totally think there’s something fishy about Dumbledore’s death — especially his funeral. Like, why was he buried out at sea?
NYU bimbette #2: He wasn’t. He was buried at Hogwarts.
NYU bimbette #1: Wait… Am I thinking of First Knight?

Wait — What Might Be Pointed?

Yuppie #1: I saw Lord of the Rings for the first time last night. I’m totally hot for Galadriel.
Yuppie #2: You mean Cate Blanchett.
Yuppie #1: No, man. Galadriel. If I was Frodo I would be like, ‘Thanks for the light thingy, milady. Maybe there’s something I could do for you?’
Yuppie #2: Yeah, but she’s an elf. Who knows what they got goin’ on down there.
Yuppie #1: You mean it might be pointed?

I Told You He Had Some Kennedy Blood in Him

Little boy in stroller pats a woman on the thigh reaching for a chain hanging from her pocket.

Woman: Oh, no! You don’t touch strange women! You don’t touch strange women! Otherwise they might touch you back… Oh, aren’t you a sweetheart?! [To his parents] Oh, yeah. He knows what he’s doing.

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.

–Manhattan-bound 4 train

Just Colors, Though, at Least for Now

Girl #1: So, are you and Evan still hooking up?
Girl #2: Oh, yeah. Yeah, we are. But, I mean, I don’t know how I really feel. It’s starting to get really serious! Like, right now we’re doing laundry together.
