Dialog from _The Office_

Pam: I'm inventing new diseases.
Jim: Oh great.
Pam: So like, let's say that my teeth turn to liquid ...
Jim: Mmm-hmm.
Pam: ... and then, they drip down the back of my throat, what would you
call that?
Jim: I thought you said you were inventing diseases. That's spontaneous
dental hydroplosion.
Pam: Oh ... nice.
Jim: Thank you.

Also featured in that episode were Count Choculitis, Hot Dog Finger, and
