PRINCE: Our DSL is SO expensive. I wish someone would offer us a better deal.

LOREN: Yeah.

PRINCE: Oh, my, my, looky here at what I got in the mail! We can bundle an order of high-speed cable Internet service and cable TV and a TiVo-like DVR system for a really good price!


PRINCE: C'mon!

LOREN: If you can have cable, then I can have a housekeeper.

PRINCE: What?! No.

LOREN: It'd be nice to have someone clean the place every once in a while.

PRINCE: Our apartment is like 50 square feet—there's nothing to clean!

LOREN: It would be nice.

PRINCE: Cable TV and a DVR system.

LOREN: Housekeeper.

PRINCE: Cable TV and a DVR system.

LOREN: Housekeeper.

PRINCE: Only if it's an illegal immigrant woman fresh from Mexico.


PRINCE: My dead grandmother was an illegal immigrant housekeeper fresh from Thailand.

LOREN: Fine, as long as the cable and stuff is a really good deal, so show me the paperwork.

PRINCE: Fine, as long as the housekeeper you hire has no paperwork.
