Wow, “Long Is­land” and “Bet­ter” in One Dis­cus­sion

Suit #1: How long have you lived here?
Suit #2: How old are you? Prob­a­bly longer than you have been alive.
Suit #1: Born and raised in New York, huh?
Suit #2: No, a farm in PA. Got the fuck out of there, though. Met a girl from New York–well ac­tu­al­ly, Long Island–married her and moved out here. Thought she had mon­ey. Yeah…fooled the shit out of me.
Suit #3: Ha, you were that close to be­ing bet­ter than all of us.

Was There Rat Kiss­ing?

Sev­en-year-old girl: I’m go­ing to see a movie this week­end. Can any­one guess what I’m go­ing to see?
Sev­en-year-old boy: Rata­touille! I al­ready saw it.
Sev­en-year-old girl: Yeah, I’m go­ing to go see Rata­touille this week­end.
Sev­en-year-old boy: Yeah, I al­ready saw it. And there’s this one part — yuck — you don’t want to see it. It’s bad, you re­al­ly don’t want to see that part — it’s gross. [Whis­pers it to an­oth­er kid.]Seven-year-old girl: What? Is there kiss­ing? I can see kiss­ing… If you think I’ve nev­er seen kiss­ing be­fore, there’s kiss­ing in every oth­er movie I have ever seen in my life!
