man: you're doing a fine job, officer...keep up the good work! Frank: What's gotten into kids today? joe: yo pop, thanks for meeting me in town for coffee. Frank: no problem, son. frank: you mean, "you're welcome". Joe: Mom reminded me that "no problem" is basically an inappropriate response to "Thank you". Frank: you do realize that your mother has pretty much banned the word "basically" from the english language. Joe: "pretty much"? That phrase is a waste of two good words in mom's book!

I'm going to speak in semi literate american english! frank: I'm wearing a wire!
