Boss: Can't you find meaning in your personal life? Tina: He's an engineer. Dilbert: Now you're just being a jerk.

Dilbert says to a classroom of children, "The goal of every engineer is to retire without getting blamed for a major catastrophe."

The newscaster continues, "And in local news, not much was happening, so we drove the news van around until we hit a pedestrian."
