Rodney: Ha-ha! Did you hear what I said? Funny, right?
Samantha: Behave yourself! This is a serious and solemn occasion, not a time for levity.
Rodney: Loosen up. We have to endure two hours of this ceremony.
Samantha: It’s indecent the way you’re behaving. Don’t you have any sense of decorum?
Rodney: Lighten up. You’re such a stick-in-the-mud. There’s nothing unseemly about cracking a few jokes when everybody here is taking themselves too seriously.
Samantha: Your problem is that you have no sense of dignity. Don’t you realize that your stupid jokes cheapen the occasion? You’re a disgrace.
Rodney: Don’t get all huffy. All right, if you won’t join in, I’ll try to be serious.
Samantha: That’s better.
Rodney: I would seriously like a drink. Bartender!
