Get scrod

A guy is invited to dinner, and his hosts serve a wonderful fish dish. He asks what it is, and they tell him it's scrod. So he asks his hosts where he can get some more, and they tell him it's a speciality in Boston.

The guy just has to have some more right away, and he immediately flies into Boston. At Logan, he jumps into a cab, and he shouts to the cabbie, "Take me someplace where I can get scrod!" The cabbie says, "Sure thing, bud, but why are you using the subjunctive pluperfect?"
