      • Sally: (to her audience) Thank you, thank you, I'm so glad you had the nerve to fall into this joint. How do you like my outfit? (rainbow feathered atrocity) Isn't it great, my husband bought it but he lets me wear it now and then. Dear ole Dumbo, what else would you call a man with a six and a half ear span, from the neck up he looks like a piper cub. But I'm not complaining, after he learned how to wiggle his ears, we didn't need to have air conditioning. It's a good thing he'll never be king because with his face on a stamp nobody would lick it.

      • Alan: Hi sweetheart, you were dynamite.
        Sally: Your always dynamite.
        Alan: Nah. You know I really shouldn't be here kissing you like this.
        Sally: Why not you're my husband?
        Alan: Yeah I know but everytime I see you in this outfit I feel like I'm having an affair with Big Bird.
