"Wow, is that how much music costs now? Honestly, I have no idea, I haven't paid for music in years."

Old Man

Shelley Birney,
"A stiff fine, yes, but it's hardly as bad as when I was punched in the stomach for humming 'Hollaback Girl' on the elevator."

Black Man

Hans Hoerzl,
Curtain Installer
"To avoid any problems, I'll just start stealing from the record store again."
