It’s hardly the funniest line in “The 40 Year-Old Virgin” (I watched a re-run the other night) . . . but it is a good real estate line.
The setup: Andy (Steve Carell’s character) just refinished his hardwood floors, and is showing new girlfriend Trish (Catherine Keener) his very empty place for the first time.
Andy: I should pull up the hardwood to see if there’s carpet underneath.
Andy: No. That’s never the case.
I agree: it’s never the case.
