"I'm sorry to have to tell you this, William, but you're not my first."

"No problem, Elizabeth. You're not my first, either."

"I did it with your brother Charlie. Last night. He was my first."

"Well, I did it with your younger sister. And she was my first...today."

"You bastard!"

"No, that's my brother Charlie. We still don't know who his father is, in fact."

"Charlie is so much better at this than you, it's ridiculous."

"Wish I could say the same for your kid sister."

"I hope her husband finds out!"

"You mean Lou? He already knows."

"Oh, really?"

"Sure. We videotaped the whole thing."

"And...?"

"And Lou was the one holding the camera."

"You're disgusting! You know that, don't you?

"So I've been told. Thanks for corroborating."

"You make me sick, William."

"And week-old tuna salad once gave me diarrhea. What's your point?"

"My point is, I wish I'd never met you!"

"Yeah, well I wish Hubert Humphrey had won in '68. Life's unfair."

"And short. Just like your—"

"Let's not go there, Elizabeth. Unless, of course, you want to discuss those 32Bs you call—"

"Pig!"

"Slut!"

"Cuckold!"

"Whore!"

"Darling?"

"What is it, Elizabeth?"

"I hear someone coming."

"It's probably the night nurse with our meds. Old age is a bitch, ain't it?

"William? What did I tell you last night?"

"Yeah, I know. 'Age is just a number.'"

"And you believe that, right?"

"Sure I do. But ninety-two is such a high number."

"And so is ninety, dear. Still..."

"Sorry, my sweet. Where were we?"

"I believe you'd just called me a whore."

"Shh. The nurse is here. Hold that thought."
