 nYou’ve had sushi before haven’t you, Nanny Fine..
 mOh Yeah! Sure, sure sure sure…Huh! Smells like fish here. Oh look! Samples . Tastes a little rubbery.
 You’re eating the display 
 nYou’re turning into my mother. You know. Once she ate a half of a plastic Oreo cookie before she realized it was a refrigerator magnet…. 
Ms Babcock. Did you you ever think that a guy was coming onto you and it turns out that he really had no interest in you at all?
 mOh! Happens to me all the time.
 nHmmmmmmmmm. So, what’s the green stuff?
 mIt’s Wasabi. It’s like mustard.
It gives it a real kick.
I love mustard. 
So, tell me. How’s working with Marvin Hamlisch?
 mHow should I know? I’ve never met the man.
 nWell. What about that picture in the paper? 
 mOh Nannifine….I know the editor. 
 mThe entire cover was a fake.
 nYou mean Pepe didn’t fly the plane?
mNanny Fine. You’ve got to help me. You have to get Maxwell to ask me back. 
 mPlease Nanny Fine. You’ve just got to do this for me. For all time’s sake. We go way back. 
 mRemember that time you ate the rubber shrimp? Hahaha Gha Gha haaaaaaaa…

 m そんな事わかんないよ。彼にに会ったことがないからね。
 n そうか。新聞の写真はなんなの?
 m ああ、ナニフィー…編集者と知り合いなんだよ。
 m 表紙は全部でっち上げだよ。
 n ぺぺは飛行機を操縦しなかったってこと?
m ナニ−ファイン。助けてよ。マクスウェルに私を戻すように言ってよ。
 m ナニ−ファイン、お願いだよ。私のためにやってくれ。今までのこともあるし、昔からの仲だろう。
