* First off:
-->'''Know-it-All Boy''': It was five minutes to midnight four minutes ago.
-->'''Conductor''': Exactly.
* And [[BrickJoke the payoff:]]
-->'''Hero Girl:''' It's still 5 minutes to 12!
-->'''Know-it-all Boy:''' [[LampshadeHanging It's been 5 minutes to 12 for the past hour]]!
* [[RuleOfThree 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"'' What the heck does that mean?
-->'''Conductor''' (Examining the ticket): "Lean" has four letters. I believe I punched ''five.''
--> (Hands it back)
--> '''Know-It-Al''': Hey, are you sayin' I can't read?? (Reads it again and looks back sheepishly) Oh. I'm sorry.
--> (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'' "GetOnWithItAlready."
