JOEL: Jenny! I mean Pat. What's up?
PAT: Oh, I've just been thinking about stuff.
JOEL: Stuff? What kind of stuff have you been thinking about?
PAT: Oh, nothing you'd want to hear about...
JOEL: Are you kidding? Are you pulling my freaky plastic leg? Of course I want to hear about it!
PAT: I know! I was just joking. It's what I do.
JOEL: Sure as heck is!
PAT: OK - what I was thinking about is this: you know how some people nod their heads with such gusto that it becomes like a half-body nod, their entire upper body getting in on the action?
JOEL: I think I do.
PAT: You do. It's like a head nod turned up a few notches. These crazy characters who do this amped-up nod can be annoyingly overenthusiastic, or endearingly unselfconscious. It's up to you how you interpret it.
JOEL: WOAH! Don't leave it up to me! You know I can't handle being put in that position! Especially since the accident!!!
PAT: I thought you told me it wasn't an accident?
JOEL: Yeah..but the damn cops told me to drop my investigations. It's been "officially" ruled an accident.
PAT: Righto. And if it helps, we'll say that the half-body nod is a good thing.
JOEL: Ta. Hey, why don't we work on developing a full-body nod? Sort of a long body roll that starts at the head and travels all the way down to your feet.
PAT: Right on - now I know why you're known around these parts as "the brains of the operation". Also why people forgive your freakish appearance.
JOEL: You know what else I like? People who are always walking into things. That's cute. Unless they're walking into other people, which is creepy.
POPPYCOCK: Did I hear my name?
PAT: SHIVERS, POPPYCOCK! You gave me quite the scare.
JOEL: Not me. I'm cool as.
PAT: You sure are. That's why you're unofficially known around these parts as "Charles Bronson".
JOEL: Really? I never knew that.
PAT: What about people who unknowingly wear items of clothing inside-out?
JOEL: Love it. At least if it's a t-shirt or jumper or something. Pants is a bit wrong. And socks don't really rate either way.
POPPYCOCK: I can wear things inside out.
PAT: That's ok Poppy. Listen, this is kind of a private conversation.
POPPYCOCK: Can I just listen?
PAT: Why is he always hanging around?
JOEL: Well, since the...accident, he's just been around to help out. You know, when I have my episodes. I don't know where he came from.
PAT: He creeps me out.
JOEL: Not me.
PAT: Yeah, that's probably why you're unofficially known around these parts as "the dude with the creepy clown always hanging around him".
POPPYCOCK: Did I hear my name again?
PAT: Listen, I'm off to the solarium.
