My God, what a belly! Don't you tell me you're pregnant again 'cuz I'll go nuts. You're sure you're not? Anyway, you do you. So aren't you gonna lose weight? Not my business but I'm thinkin' maybe you'd get a role or somethin'. You did? In a film? Can you still act, after all the time-out? But aren't you gonna repaint these walls? How can you live in such filth? You cooked this? I'm surprised, it's actually good. Did you wash the veggies well? You're not very good at this stuff, just like that asshole, your dad.
