From a "glossary" of New York jargon:
Ejectile Vomiting (noun): A type of illness that results in your being kicked out of a cab after soiling the footwell.

Another useful word was:
Remnick (verb): To claim an anecdote is out-of-bounds for group conversation, based on two or more people having read said anecdote in this week’s New Yorker. E.g., ‘Did you read that in the New Yorker?’ ‘Yeah. You did too?’ ‘Yup. Oh well, this conversation’s remnicked.’
