Katie: For the first month, I was like, “Who is Marcellas Shale and why does he own all this land?” People were protesting drilling, and I was imagining this coal baron going like, “hahahaha!”
Emily: The next “How Things Work” should be on survival. Drinking your own urine and eating flowers and shit.
Katie: The bus takes too long to arrive. Go into survival mode and drink your own piss.
(Talking about puppies coming today)
Stacey: I think it’s an ad exchange. We have an ad for the humane society.
Katie: Oh my god. Can we forgo Qdoba and just get puppies every week?
Greg: To eat?
(Greg is talking to Allison about how the Pillbox editor and the copy manager used to fight a lot)
Greg: I don’t think you’ll have the same kind of fight that we had in 2006.
Anna: Oh the great copy fight of 2006.
Katie: Yeah, back when I was 15. I couldn’t even drive, Greg!
Katie: I’m gonna crash your agreement party with another agreement.
Patrick: Katiegreg… pick a style for the Pillbox cover. Do you want complete sentences or a continuation of the big words? Pick a style and we will stick with it for all eternity.
Anna: No pressure.
Katie: I like big words.
Patrick: That wasn’t the question.
Katie: Can we make a rule to not round large numbers? “AIDS kills 1.7 million people every year.” This person rounded to 2 million. That’s 300,000 people it’s not killing every year.
Katie: “Halloween is what separates the sluts from the posers.” So what, if you put clothes on when it snows you’re not a real slut?
Katie: How’s the feature going?
Allison: That’s a great question. That’s a really, really great question…
Katie: I went to Qdoba last night and they asked me what kind of salsa I want. “We have mild, medium, hot, very hot, extra hot, and corn.”
