    [On the computer screen, they see and hear Block teasing:]

    Harry Block: That's the kind of rump you want to roast! The kind of muffin you'd like to butter!

    Harry Block: No, Amy Pollock was the only one, may God strike me dead if I am lying.

    Joan: You're an atheist, Harry!

    Harry Block: Wha-hey, we're alone in the universe, you're going to blame that on me, too?
