Two wrongs make a right?

Laura: I think you're incorrectly wrong.
Jack: Does that mean I'm right?
Laura: It means I'm going to punch you.

A musical phone company

[While listening to Pachelbel's Canon in D]

Jack: Do you know this composer?
Laura: No.
Jack: It's Pachelbel.
Laura: Pac Bell?

Name that composer

[While listening to Bach's "Sheep may safely graze"]

Jack: Can you name that composer?
Laura: Uh, Gershwin.....Bach.....von Something?
Jack: "von Something?"
Laura: Am I right?
Jack: [laughing]
Laura: Don't just laugh. Am I right?
Jack: It's Bach.
Laura: So I was right.
Jack: But his first name is not Gershwin.
Laura: I know. It's Johannesburg.

for the surgical part of it."

As I hurried to write that quote down, she added: "I'm going to have to send you to the ICU!"
