Chad: Have you ever seen Michael Crawford on a cereal box?

Troy: Who's Michael Crawford?

Yeah, not on it, in it. So my point is, if you play basketball, you're gonna end up on a cereal box. If you sing in musicals, you're gonna end up in my mom's refrigerator.

Troy: Why would she put his picture in her refrigerator?

Chad: I don't know, one of her crazy diet ideas. Look, I don't attempt to understand the female mind Troy! [Ms. Falstaff peers around the corner] It's foreign territory.
