Extraneously impressed

Laura: "Oh where did we park, where did we park?"
Jack: "You don't remember?"
Laura: "No."
Jack: "It's straight ahead. No need to keep extraneous facts in your brain, eh?"
Laura: " the word extraneous."

[a few minutes later...]

Laura: "I don't know why I'm so tired...I'm old and extraneously decrepit."
Laura (brightening, proud of herself): "It's always good when you can use two big words in the same sentence. You're impressed, aren't ya!"
