JULIE: What’s he done now?
SHARON: Told me he had a low sperm count and

Remember what I did to Kenny Wilson’s
JULIE: Had to shave his head, didn’t he?
SHARON: Well, he didn’t suit pink.
JULIE: Here, maybe you could use your
enthusiastic nature to get rid of Scrotum.
SHARON: What do you mean?
JULIE: You could cook him a meal and poison
SHARON: What kind of a meal?
JULIE: What does he like?
SHARON: Prunes, he swears by them.
