1. Cop to no one in particular: Thar she blows. I always wanted to say that. Somehow it's not as much fun as I thought it would be. Maybe I needed an audience.

2. Cop to himself: how much you wanna bet I get blamed for this?

3. Cop, yelling out loud: Hey kids, grab your bathing suits, it's a hydrant party!

4.Water utility worker to himself: Now what page in the manual tells me what to do about this?

5.Water utility worker to himself: Damn, I was hoping that would be oil. I always wanted to be Jed Clampett.
