Funny: The Polar Express
- First off:
Know-it-All Boy: It was five minutes to midnight four minutes ago.Conductor: Exactly.
- And the payoff:
Hero Girl: It's still 5 minutes to 12!Know-it-all Boy: It's been 5 minutes to 12 for the past hour!
- Let's get one more of him in there:
Know-It-All (Reading the word punched on his ticket with his thumb over one letter): "Lean?" Whatever that's supposed to mean.Conductor (Examining the ticket): "Lean" is spelled with four letters. I believe I punched five.(Hands it back)Know-It-Al: Hey, are you sayin' I don't know how to...(Reads it again and looks back sheepishly) Oh. I'm sorry. It says "Learn". My mistake.(Boards train)Conductor (To himself): Lesson learned.
- A blink-and-you-miss-it one. As Hero Boy and Hero Girl are sharing their goodbye hug, the conductor briefly checks his pocket watch and makes an exasperated face that just screams "Get On With It Already."
- Hero Boy telling the hobo that he's "looking for a girl." The hobo howls with laughter and replies "Ain't we all??"
