Fellow #1 - "Hey, you heard about Gary? He ended up doing that prostitute that was taking all the guys to the bathroom in exchange for quarters. She then met up with him a few months later with her pimp by her side telling him she's pregnant and keeping the baby. And if he didn't marry her, the pimp was going to kill him. So now he's going to be a dad to a crack baby, married to a crack whore, and living under the iron fist of a wrathful pimp."

Fellow #2 - "Man. Now that's Tribal."
