Social Tip #120 - BE THERE

My dad explained a scene to me from the original "The Taking of Pelham 123," and I disappointed him by not laughing as hard as he was.

"I guess you had to be there," he said.

You guess I had to be where? In the movie theater, when the scene happened? Or alive, when the movie came out?

Scenes from TV or movies are never funny secondhand. Yes, Curb Your Enthusiasm is a great show, but if I wanted to enjoy it, I would watch it. Stop trying to drown me in your bucket of yawns.

Let me guess. It was a scene involving Japanese dudes?

How many yawns actually fit in a bucket?

Paul - Yeah, it was the scene where they understand English

Briant - About two hours worth
