Girl #1: I am so ready to go downtown - I've memorized my whole fake I.D.
Guy: Prove it! (He quizzes her and she knows everything) That's impressive.

Girl #2: Oh my God - I didn't! Do you think I should?
Girl #3: It doesn't matter, I've got a plan. If they won't let us in I'll just say, "okay, fine, but I have to go to the bathroom." Then I just won't leave the club.

Keep up the good work, ladies. If you don't fight ignorance, who will?
