Boy 1: Ohhhh, hush up!

Mrs. Johnson: Mmm-hmm. Now GET ON AWAY FROM HERE!!

[ she retreats inside her apartment ]

Boy 1: Kooky, Mrs. Johnson, man! You know, I heard that she was chained up in there. Because, one time she escaped and ran down to City Hall and was exposing all kinds of corruption. And then she introduced sme bill to revolutionize the tax code. Just CRAZY stuff, man!

Boy 2: Yeah... Hey, is that crazy? I mean, it sounds kind of smart, you know?

Boy 1: Hey, about this, man -- you wanna go down to the dog track.

Boy 2: Yeah. I just got paid. Come on, let's double up! [ they high-five ]

[ Mrs. Johnson pokes her head out of her window ]

Mrs. Johnson: HEY!! You should take that money, put it in a Roth IRA, and invest it in an international small cap mutual fund! Those stocks are 25% off their 52-week high -- but their fundamentals are still impressive!

Boy 1: Mrs. Johnson!

Mrs. Johnson: Mmm-hmm. NOW GET FROM AROUND HERE!!

[ she retreats inside her apartment ]

Boy 1: Man, that lady belongs in a MENTAL hospital!

Boy 2: Ah, I don't know, man... she seems to know a lot of stuff.

Boy 1: Pfft! A lot of stuff about being a loon!

Mrs. Johnson: A loon is a medium-sized water bird! NOT to be confused with a seagull! NOWwWW GEEETTTT!!!

Boy 1: You see what I'm saying?

[ Boy 2 nods ]

Mrs. Johnson: If you see what you're saying... you might be suffering from a condition known as Synesthesia! NOW GEEETTTT GOING!!!

[ she retreats inside her apartment ]

Boy 2: You know... she might be less of a crazy person and more of a, you know, like, a genius.

Mrs. Johnson: According to the Greek philosopher Aristotle, there was never a genius without a tinge of madness. NOWWWW GEEETTTTTT!!!!

Boy 1: Mrs. Johnson!

Boy 1: Mrs. Johnson!

Mrs. Johnson: WHAT?!!

Boy 1: How in the HELL do you KNOW all this stuff?!

[ flashback music pots up, as Mrs. Johnson develops a wistful stance ]

Mrs. Johnson: My Daddy used to sell Wikipedias.

Boy 2: But, Mrs. Johnson, you can get Wikipedia online for free.

Mrs. Johnson: I know. That's why we was always so poor.

Both Boys: Ohhhhhhhhh....
