  • Dave: Well, at least I know there's no "e" in "grammar."
    Vince: At least I'm not the one who printed the worst dangling participle in the history of our newspaper.
    Dave: Of what is it you are speaking?
    Vince: The boy collided with a telephone pole running down the street.
    David: No one's gong to think a telephone pole was running down the street.
    Vince: In Haven, they might. Oh, thank god Strunk and White don't read the Herald.
    Dave: Strunk and White can funk my Wagnalls.
  • Dwight: Why?
    Mara: Why? Why what? Why? Oh, the Troubles. Right. Why not? Did you ever pull the wings off of a dragonfly or... set fire to your cats fur so you could see what it smells like?
    Dwight: Setting fires, torturing animals--you wet the bed, too?
    Mara: You're less than insects to me.
  • Nathan: If you didn't think you had a Trouble, why'd you join the Guard?
    Rhett: To meet chicks.
    Duke: Guys have done stranger things to get laid.
