1. Basically Potomac except with eight times as many restaurants, three times as many crazy soccer moms, half the number of polo shirts and a shorter commute into DC.
2. City in which walking in any direction for fifteen minutes will inevitably lead you to a Starbucks.
3. Suburbia trying to be urban.
4. Place in which it is extremely dangerous to be a small property, business or house because you are statistically certain to eventually be bought by a rich developer, torn down, built up ten stories high and be sold at ten times your original price.
5. The weekend haunt of slutty-looking pre-teens wearing short skirts or trying to skateboard.
6. Where you will never find a parking space ever, and if you do it won't matter because the restaurant will have a three hour wait anyways.
7. Somewhere deceivingly entertaining, since the only real thing to do is eat or visit Barnes&Noble.
8. A limiting factor when it comes to getting into college, since everyone around you is an overachieving freak who does three sports, is in theatre, edits the yearbook, and is on SGA.
Person from Bethesda: Hi, I'm from Bethesda.
Person Not from Bethesda: Hi, you must be a rich snobby fuck.
PFB: Well yeah kind of, but at least I'm not from Potomac where it's illegal to wear clothes that cost less than $500 per square inch of fabric.
PNFB: Fair point. Wanna go spend an absurd amount of money on movie tickets?
PFB: Sure, but only if we go to the Row since UA/Lowes is sure to be overpopulated by 10-year-old hookers.
PNFB: Good call.

A suburban area in Montgomery County (MoCo) Maryland that is filled with restaurants, houses, four large public high schools to accommodate overpopulation, and expensive cars. People from outside Bethesda usually consider it to be a disgustingly homogenous and rich area. Similar and directly next to Potomac.

The place where the where the high end job holders of the DC metro area go to have their families. With schools of over achieving children and high standards, streets filled with expensive cars, and a commercial standard of high priced quality material goods Bethesda is a yuppie heaven.

A beautiful community just outside of Washington DC, filled with large, expensive homes, fancy restaurants, boutique shops, and expensive cars. It is the best educated city in America - with over 50% of the adult population holding a masters degree or higher. Has a very cosmopolitan and urbane feel.
X: Wow, ten different ethnic restaurants in a row?!
Y: Dude, it's Bethesda
