HARRY-AS-A-BOY: Well, I plan on making a few mistakes, having my heart broken and so forth, using all kinds of drugs, and turning gay as soon as possible in order to accelerate my rise to the 'top of the heap'.

RHONDA: HARRY, I used to think you were merely an OVER- EDUCATED SHIT-HEAD, but now that I finally have proof, it's going to give me GREAT PLEASURE to refer to you as an OVER-EDUCATED COCKSUCKER! HARRY: Well, to be honest with you, dearest, I sort of ...gulp, gulp... RHONDA: Where's the fairies on a string, HARRY? Huh? Riddle me this! THING-FISH: Easy there, white folks!
