Spotted: Subway Cars

I was getting on the subway to head to the Dirksen cafeteria for lunch today with my friend when this large group of teenage girls and 1 intern come down the hallway at the same time. While we're waiting for the Dirksen subway to arrive, the intern loads 20 of the girls onto the Russell subway car *without her*. And then she takes the remaining 5 and gets on the Dirksen subway.

My friend says to her as we are loading onto the car "You know these subways don't go to the same place, right?". The intern gives my friend a confused look and says "No they do. It's ok.". My friend and I are quietly laughing about this in our subway car when suddenly we hear a knock on the window separating us from the other car holding the intern and the 5 teenage girls. The intern looks at us with a confused look and mouths "Where does this one go?" referring to the Dirksen subway.

Meanwhile, the 20 teenage girls with no tour guide must have arrived at Russell.
