You Take It Out of the Dryer This Minute!
Indian dude sitting outside laundromat: It wasn’t a baby! It wasn’t a real, white baby!
Blonde: It was a genuine baby!

There’s so much wrong with that quote. It’s almost insinuating that a baby has to be “white” to be “real.” Thanks, Indian dude. What an example of white supremacy at its finest, even in progressive New York. And the setting, a laundromat, brings to mind the slums of immigration.
That said, it is a sort of funny quote. And I still think NYC is a great city.
