Meat­head: God, there are an aw­ful lot of bums here.
Ditzy girl: I know. But think about it, be­ing a bum in San Diego is to­tal­ly smart. It’s nev­er cold, and they can just sleep on the beach, and the church around the cor­ner from my house feeds them for free every day. They’ve got it made!
Meat­head: To­tal­ly. Be­ing a bum here must rock. If I ever need to, I’m gonna be a bum here.
Ditzy girl: I know. I don’t know why peo­ple would be bums any­where else. I mean, how stu­pid. If you’re gonna be home­less, do it in San Diego. Duh.
