John: “We should really do something about the inequality that is going on over there, but it’s obvious that my Waldo outfit is not very intimidating and we might fail in our heroic pursuits.”

Ida: “It doesn’t matter. My severe eye makeup and world-domination hairdo will easily compensate for any costume-design emasculation on your part. Let’s go!”
