And because it’s awesome. Can you identify this bit of film dialogue, and explain to my wife why it’s hilarious?
A MAN and a WOMAN are lying in bed, kissing and caressing.
WOMAN: What else should I know?
MAN: I could teach you the secret of how to treat azaleas.
WOMAN: Oh, tell me. I’m all ears.
MAN: I can see that. Well… just treat them the same way as you would a begonia.
WOMAN: No kidding?
MAN: That’s gospel.
WOMAN: You mean what you’re saying is what’s good for azaleas is good for begonias?
MAN: You got it.
WOMAN: [MAN’s name], this is fascinating.
MAN: I thought you’d be interested.
For extra credit, explain why the above scene is funnier than the following.
A SECURITY GUARD finds an OTHER MAN engaged in a theft.
SECURITY GUARD: Hold it right there, nigger.
OTHER MAN: Hey! How you doin’, old dude? What’s happenin’?
