Guy’s Voice: Hey, so we’ve been hanging out all the time, spending a lot of time together and everything.

Woman’s Voice: Yeah, yeah. I know.

Guy’s Voice: I wanna keep doing that…’til you’re dead. I want to keep hanging out with you until one of us dies. Put this ring on your finger so people know we have an arrangement.”

Woman’s Voice: Who’s that guy?

Guy’s Voice: It’s a priest. I want you to swear to god you won’t back out of this deal.

Woman’s Voice: What’s he wheeling in?

Guy’s Voice: It’s a cake with two tiny dolls that look like us. Eat a slice! Now feed a little bit to me.

Woman’s Voice: This is really strange. Why are we doing this?

Guy’s Voice: Tax purposes.
