Girl: You know you’ll never pay that credit card off right?
Boy: Yeah, but look at your life — you have sobriety, a boyfriend and two of your own dollars. I would take drunkenness, someone else’s money and random ugly girls ANY DAY.

Unassuming Fluid Mechanics Homework Group Girl: … So yeah, that kid I showed you the picture of before … I took it up the butt from him. Afterwards I was outside unpacking my car and I had to fart so bad. And basically, everything that went in, came out.
UFMHG Boy: Hah. Dude, I wonder what the Reynold’s number was on that shit.

Guy: Seriously, though. Some girls say that I’m the best.
