Being There

GIRL ON METRO: You have a very pleasant attitude.

ME: I'm quite surprised you can tell, without even talking to me.

GIRL: I pay attention to these things. You have a nice attitude. It's refreshing.

ME: Thank you. So what do you do?

GIRL: I work in preserving ocean habitats.

ME: I'm a lawyer.

GIRL: A DC lawyer, with a pleasant attitude. That's a first.

ME:
Well, I'm not a very good lawyer, if that explains anything.

JAY:
After this episode, I made Emily watch "Being There."

SCOTT:
You made me watch it, too.

EMILY:
You never made me watch it.

SCOTT:
My God, Jay, did you just get Emily and me mixed up? When you proposed to Emily, you sure you didn't think you were proposing to me, right?
