STAN: "What happened, Mark?"
MARK: "A tree fell during the windstorm and hit my house."

MARK: "I know. It was the big tree in our yard."

STAN: "That's good!"
MARK: "I really liked that tree. It was so big and beautiful. And, now it's in my living room."
STAN: "You're a strong man if you can joke about it."
MARK: "Well, if I don't laugh, I'll cry."
STAN: "I would be crying right now."
