Garv: So classy!
Serra: Yeah, did I actually just put that into a compliment? (crowd laughs) Everybody thinks I’m a prick, you see, there ya go. That’ll change some of opinions maybe.
Garv: I think it will.
Serra: I doubt it though. I doubt it.
Garv: You know, that accent of yours, some people just love to hate New Yorkers.
