Janet: It's supposed to make you feel better... Look, you've had a rough night. It can't be easy arresting your cousin's husband. People talk around here. I listen.

Jack: I really don't want to get into it.

Janet: I know you don't want to talk, In fact, I don't think we should talk. Because you and me we're not about talking. We're about sex. Uncomplicated sex.

Jack: Alright - And you're still OK with that?

Janet: Oh, Yeah -It's all about sex and pie - Pie and sex! C'mon! Have a taste ...
