Skipped School to Watch Mon­ty Python

Of­fice ra­dio just played ‘High Hopes,’ by Frank Sina­tra.

Flaky girl: What’s a ‘rub­ber tree plant’? Is it, like, a plant made of rub­ber, or a plant you get rub­ber from?

Flaky girl: What’s that?
Yup­pie girl: Like, a ba­by tree.

Flaky girl: So, a ba­by is not re­al­ly a hu­man?
Yup­pie girl: So it would be easy for the ant to move it.

New part­ner: I could have asked a thou­sand peo­ple that ques­tion, on­ly you would have giv­en that an­swer.
