Hate crime

GRACE: Matt, come hear what Samira did to this girl who made the mistake of getting her ethnicity wrong.

MATT: I’ll have to hear it later.  You guys will never believe what just happened.

GRACE: What?

MATT: Ok, so I was trying to study

SAMIRA: But not succeeding.

MATT: Quiet you.  I was string to study in my room, and all of a sudden I hear all this commotion in the hall.  So I look out and there are all these campus police officers gathered around someone’s room.  Of course I can’t study will all the noise (eye rolling, a look) so I go down to check it out.  And that’s when I see it.

SARA: So I’m guessing you’re Armenian.

SAMIRA: No, I’m Catholic

SARA: We were, I was just curious.  You see, I have this Armenian friend who looks just like you.  I swear you could be twins.

SAMIRA: Oh.  Well, I’m not Armenian actually.

SARA: Are you sure?  You really look exactly like my friend.  There couldn’t be some ancestor?  Maybe someone who was adopted...or something…?

EMILY: Four inches is really not that bad, I swear. I'll keep flip-flops in my clutch or something.
