it all myself. CALLIE: So, what did Ned say? JIM: You know it was nothing it was just… mumbling. CALLIE: What kind of mumbles? JIM: I don’t know, I couldn’t understand him. CALLIE: Careful, it’s hot. JIM: Oh that’s good. That’s really good. [Slurping] [Inaudible Moans] JIM: Oh, I think he’s bleeding. [Coughing] JIM: What kind of meat did you say this was? JIM: What the hell? What’s in the soup? CALLIE: Some tree bark, grass, ceramine leaves, the
combination of which gives you sever nausia, CALLIE: dizziness and temporary paralysis of the extremadies. CALLIE: Luckily, it cooks out. BOY: Mom? CALLIE: Yeah? BOY:Are we gonna eat them soon? CALLIE: Soon hon, real soon. CALLIE: Now… did you stab my husband in the gut
