Kyle: Are you watching that sitcom again? It’s so stupid. There’s nothing witty or original about the humor.
Paulina: I don’t need highbrow jokes. I enjoy all kinds of comedy.
Kyle: You mean you like screwball and slapstick humor.
Paulina: Yes, so?
Kyle: So? It’s so juvenile.
Paulina: I know that it’s hard for people like you who like satire to appreciate the more wacky kinds of humor, but you might try getting off your high horse once in a while.
Kyle: I’m not snooty. I’m just discriminating. I like comedians with a dry sense of humor like that self-deprecating guy on that show I watch.
Paulina: That show is a snoozefest. That guy bores me to death.
Kyle: And this show does it for you?
Paulina: You bet.
Kyle: There’s no accounting for taste!
