“The Big Apple. Christmas Eve. Dirty snow. Yuppies walk the streets, pointing and laughing at homeless people. Rats are eating a Bloomingdale’s holiday display. Random man on a street corner is

JOSEPH: Too bad about being fired, Cookie. At least now you have time to visit your folks!

JOSEPH: Girl, let’s go to New England and get us some country dick!”
