Jay: ...so yeah, I highly recommend King of Kong. It's a really great documentary.
Woman: Okay, great. We love documentaries. Actually, a couple weeks ago we saw Expelled. Did you see that?
Jay: Uh, yeah, I did see that.
Woman: Oh we thought it was just great. Very funny and well done.
Jay (anxiety kicks in): Um, well, yeah, I don't know. I mean, if you do a little, uh, if you like research it...
Woman: Yeah, it's kind of soft science, I know. Then again, so is Darwin.
Jay (queasily): But, uh, I mean if you find out more about it...
Woman: Yeah, I'm actually a science teacher and so is my husband...
JAY'S KNEES BUCKLE and his HEART DROPS. He doesn't know what to say. Should he say he's studied it all through college? No, he's working at Blockbuster now. That sounds retarded.
Jay: Well, okay, cool, have a nice day!
JAY HANDS WOMAN her movie and returns to register. He can't think. He's dizzy and disoriented. What just happened?
It's all too frequent true-life moments like these that make me think, "Maybe a little anxiety medicine could go a loooonnnggg way."
