Michael Che: I guess that’s right. Look, Laura, don’t you have stories that are more fun or silly? You know?

Laura: Well, I watched a lot of TV.

Laura: I loved the show Glee. It’s got wonderful singing and acting and dancing. Everyone in the cast is such a great role model for me. Except the guy who plays Puck, because he just got arrested for child pornography!

Laura: He is so funny.

Michael Che: Laura, the case against Bill Cosby is very serious. I mean, do you even know what he did?
