A: You know that painting I was talking about at the coffee shop?
J: (John has a quizzical look)
A: Nevermind. I’ll show it to you at some point, but we’re not going to talk about it. I’ll fuckin have to write that down, otherwise I’ll forget about it. They took down my favorite painting in that place. It’s gone.

A: I looked up shit on Joan Chen. She’s pretty much been like a standard actress for like the last three decades.
(Both of them laugh)
A: Hasn’t done anything of worth, but ah, like, she did some shit on cooking last year, for the holidays…(laugh) I’m gonna get this out before this comes on. (laughing) Oh shit. But she directed something that’s supposed to be really good. That’s all I really wanted to say. Ok.
(The show is now in progress)
A: That’s that old lady, the log lady.
J: No, that wasn’t the log lady.
A: Fuck it, I really am not going to be able to watch this.

J: Who’s that?
A: Did you ever see that before? Maybe it’s just this episode.
J: It’s probably…
A: Fuck. Do you know who Tim Hunter is?
