... to be honest they weren't the only ones. His litany of obscure movie references is exhausting. The choice between nodding in fake understanding or asking him to explain what he is talking about is ultimately futile.

... charge asked if we had the book that said 600, we replied yes, and he said "Okay 600, no problem".
