    • (Charlene takes her first meeting with a client since having the baby) Mary Jo: So how'd it go? Charlene: I fell asleep. Mary Jo: When? Charlene: I'm not sure. I think it was right after we said hello and shook hands. Julia: How long did you sleep? Charlene: I think about 15 minutes. We were sitting on his sofa in his office talking about putting levalors on the windows and I just sort of nodded off. Sometime after that he woke me up(Pause) apparently I was snoring. Mary Jo: And then what happened? Charlene: I started crying. Suzanne: You started crying? Charlene: Well, yeah. Cuz I looked down and while I'd been asleep I'd gotten these great big wet milk spots on the front of my blouse. Suzanne: Oh my lord!! Charlene: It was just so humiliating. Suzanne: Oh my lord!! Julia(angrily): SUZANNE. Charlene: And then I just jumped up real quick and put on my coat. Suzanne: The one with the baby spit on it? Charlene: That's right. And thank you for telling me, Suzanne. I didn't notice 'til I'd gotten there. Mary Jo: And then you left? Charlene: And that's when I fell flat on my face in the reception area. Julia: I don't think I want to hear anymore. Charlene: I probably wouldn't have fallen except that I'd put my pantyhose on so twisted this morning I've been walking like John Wayne all day. Then my purse came open and y'know I had that box of baby suppositories in there. They just flew everywhere. There I was, on my hands and knees, wet, sobbing, mascara running down my face, my pantyhose twisted trying to gather up all these little white firecrackers. Two of the secretaries had to lift me off the floor and help me to my car. Or maybe they were throwing me out. I don't know. I never looked back.

    • Suzanne: Well, I don't know why Charlene insists on nursing this baby. It's like some kind of epidemic. Everywhere I go, anytime of the day or night, I see all these women whipping themselves out and acting like public fillin' stations. I mean, they act like just cause there's a baby attached, it's not a breast anymore. Could you see me unleashing one of these outdoors? All hell would break loose.
