  1. Jean: Get OFF me you PERSON! My makeup and hair are PERFECT and I will NOT have you sullying either of them. Plus I look really really virginal..and rutting is so not a virginal thing to do!! But good work on that uniform….

    Jean: I’m just not in the mood. Besides the United States got there first and my fire is ceased. Maybe permanently.
    Ben: Damn. And here I was all worked up and ready to pull down the wall..
    Jean: That’s BERLIN you numbskull…Did Germany get in on this muddled piece (deliberate spelling, don’t throw rotten tomatoes) accord?
