I know this doesn't technically qualify as something heard "in passing" but I couldn't help myself. It's a conversation between Sharon Osbourne and Gary Busey.

Gary: I wanted to invite you to my church...
Sharon: Oh really?
Gary: Yes, and afterwards we would get on horses and ride down this long road to the Dairy Queen and shout insults at anyone wearing zippers.

Blueberries for Sal? Anyone?

"The word, ‘blueberries,’ it speaks of a fruit, but it speaks of much more, of the Lac St-Jean, of the summer cottage, of liberty and dripping juice, and also of the bears who from time to time come into the forest!"
- professor at the Université de Montréal


(Translated from:

"Le mot, ‘bleuets,’ça parle d’un fruit, mais ça parle aussi de beaucoup plus, du Lac St-Jean, du chalet, de la liberté et du jus qui coule, et aussi des ours qui viennent de temps en temps dans la forêt!" - in other words, no, it doesn't make any more sense in French.)

"Listen, everyone knows that I'm a nice guy. I'm the one they come to when they want help with something. And they know that unless it's Hitler asking for me to come fix his stove, I'm going to do it."

"I shall smite thou and all thou's children!"

"...I'm not sure that thou is the right word"
"Come to think of it, it maybe *is* 'thee'; thank you for pointing that out to me, dear!"

"You soo snark."
"I do not snark!"
"You snark as if a giant ball of clotted blood is zooming to the earth!"
"When do I snark?"
"You snark frequently and often."
"...Don't those mean the same thing?"

On the Geary bus between my girlfriend and I on a Sunday afternoon. And no, I have no unearthly idea what 'snark' means.

Stoned, tired, or crazy?

"What does it even mean?"
"Uh, well, means...if you ever break down, then you should always send the guy in the chicken suit for gas, because.... Because, look, three handsome jocks, two pretty girls, that's basic heterosexual, but if you keep the doofy chicken guy there too, then, like...that's perverted."
"That makes sense."
"I'm glad it does to somebody."
