So Many Watershed Moments Happen at Banana Republic

(in the Georgetown Banana Republic)
Girl #1: I really love this dress, but I think it’s a tad too short for work. I’m only supposed to be buying dresses for work right now.
Girl #2: Really? It’s not too short for my office. But my boss only hires pretty people, so he likes it when we wear short dresses.
Girl #1: Did you think I’m ugly?
Girl #2: No! Buy the dress and send me your resume.

Guy #2: Yeah, next thing you know they’ll be saying, ‘We’re going to offer a Holocaust of savings.’
