    Man #1: I’ll tell you why he’s not around anymore. I went up to him, and I told him to get the hell out of town. Seriously, the cops came just in time, because I was getting my knife out.

    Man #2 (realizing I can hear all this on the way to my car): Hello sir! How are you today?

    Me: I’m good. How are you?

    (long pause)

    Man #1: I saw Spartacus this morning. That’s a great movie.
