(waiting for a train near the last few cars)
Guy: This train looks pretty crowded.
Girl: Yeah. Good thing Jackie isn’t with us.
Guy: What do you mean?
Girl: If Jackie can’t ride in the first car, she’ll wait for the next train.
Guy: Why?
Girl: “Because you get there first!” she says. Jackie! The whole train gets there at the same time!

It’s Important to Have a Cause

Dude: It was just so scary to overhear people talking on their cell phones saying all those things you associate with disaster.
Chick: Yeah.

Oldish lady #1: So, how have you been?
Oldish lady #2: Well, I just had a horrible experience! People always told me that ultrasounds were worse than childbirth, and I never believed them. You know, I never had children. But really! They were doing an ultrasound and I’ve never experienced anything more painful in my entire life! And then they couldn’t find my gallbladder! It was horrible!

Girl #2: Yeah.
Girl #1: Ohhhhhh, and then I’ll be forced not to be a slut, cause I can’t sleep out, since I’ll have to come home to feed the dog!
Girl #2: (explodes with laughter)
