Scene excepts


[Harry, Dan, Mac, and Bull track Roz and Christine to a male strip club, worrying that the place is too rough for Christine]

  • Judge Stone: Any sign of Christine?
  • Bull Shannon: [craning his neck] No. Of course, I could see a lot better if it weren't for that crazy bimbo dancing on the table.

[At second glance, the "crazy bimbo" turns out to be Christine, playing a snake-charming tune on a kazoo while "Sinbad the Snake Charmer" dances onstage]

  • Christine: Come on, Sinbad, make that thing MOVE!

  • Judge Stone: Hi, ladies.
  • Roz: Sir! What a pleasant surprise. Where'd you come from?
  • Judge Stone: [still recovering from Big Maggie's kiss] The mouth of the Amazon!
