Stacy Tererri: Yeah! Okay. Bachelor number 1, if I were ice cream, what flavor would I be, and what would you do to me?

Joey Tarentina: You would be like a lemon sherbet, you know? You’d be a little chilly at first, but then after some time you’re gonna melt in my mouth, and it tastes so good.

Glen Macera: Yeah!

Andy Perotta: He is the man! Okay, next up.

Stacy Tererri: Okay, number 2, same question.

Glen Macera: Hey, well, all I know is what flavor I’d be, and that’d be a banana, if you catch my drift.

Andy Perotta: Holy jeez, we got a battle here!

Stacy Tererri: Okay! All right, number 3, how ’bout you?

Kevin Stubbs: You’d be red raspberry and I’d lick you up and down and, I’d just eat every ounce of you.

Andy Perotta: Excuse me. What’d you just say?

Kevin Stubbs: I said what they said. She’d be red raspberry. I’d eat every ounce of her…

Andy Perotta: I’m askin’ you, what did you just say you would do to her?

Kevin Stubbs: I said, I’d lick her, like they did.

Andy Perotta: I heard what you said. I’m sayin’, next time you better be a little smarter.

Kevin Stubbs: But I said what they…

Andy Perotta: Hey, use your head. Okay, Stacy, ask some more questions, honey.

Stacy Tererri: Ok, number 2, I’m a romantic at heart. What would you do to show me the perfect romantic evening?

Glen Macera: Well, I’d take ya to Helio’s. Sure, my friend there works the door. We’d get a good table, have some cannoli…

Stacy Tererri: I love their cannoli.

Glen Macera: Oh, you do, honey? ‘Cause I wouldn’t be afraid to eat it right off of you!

Andy Perotta: Zing!

Stacy Tererri: Yeah, number 3?

Kevin Stubbs: You know, italian food would be a nice prelude before we go home and do the nasty!

Andy Perotta: Holy jeez.

Stacy Tererri: Okay. Number 3, I wanna know, if we were…

Andy Perotta: Whoa, whoa, hold up, I got a question for him. How’s he gonna taste that italian food if he got no tongue?

Stacy Tererri: Oh, Andy, it’s okay.

Andy Perotta: Swear to God, don’t test me today. Hear me, tree?

Joey Tarentina: Andy, can I bust his head in or what?

Andy Perotta: Hey, let me handle that. You just worry about answerin’ the questions.

Stacy Tererri: Okay, number 2. You’re a doctor, I’m your patient. What instruments would you use to treat me?

Glen Macera: I can’t answer that right now. I just gotta say, I got a sister, and it’s gettin’ me sick thinkin’ about this over here.

Stacy Tererri: Okay, number one?

Joey Tarentina: Andy, I swear to God I’m goin’ outta my mind here! Just let me kick his ass!

Stacy Tererri: And, number 3?

Kevin Stubbs: You don’t have to go to me. You can go to another doctor.

Andy Perotta: So now she’s not good enough for ya, stinkin’ low life, is that it?

Kevin Stubbs: But, I’m just…

Joey Tarentina: Andy, say the word, and I’ll whack his head wit’ a broomstick!
