4:55 Wait outside con hall, and wander around a bit. Spot pretty girl but too shy to say hello. She mentions excellent comic Brodies Law and someone steps in and asks if she means "Brodie from Mallrats", which she says she hasnít watched. Avoid butting in and saying that Mallrats and the other films in that series are shitty, painfully unfunny excuses for cunts to quote from them and think they are clever. And its even more stupid because the Brodies Law stand was RIGHT NEXT to the door.
