"That's just foolishness!"
(Starbucks Barista to a man who was apparently homeless- the man approached the counter and explained that he had already bought coffee elsewhere, which he was carrying in a cardboard carrier, but he was hoping she could help him out. She asked if he needed "cream or something?" and he answered, "Nah, I need like five bucks.")

"Where did Lucy get ham?"
(My son, Jack, after exiting the dentist's office where his sister, Lucy, had just had a tooth pulled. She had removed a wad of blood-soaked gauze from her mouth which vaguely resembled a piece of ham, and which Jack was eyeballing hungrily.)
