Did You Know?

Laverne DeFazio:You know something? You've got a real nice singing voice there.
Cathy:Oh, thanks.
Laverne DeFazio:Yeah. You do.
Cathy:It's what I really wanna do. See, I figure if I get to be a Bunny, I might be able to sing in one of the clubs and then I'll get a big break in my career.
Laverne DeFazio:That sounds great. I bet your folks are gonna be real happy to have a singer in the family, huh?
Cathy:Nah. They'd rather I married a doctor, had a couple kids and settled down.
Laverne DeFazio:Are you Italian?
Laverne DeFazio:Same thing.
[Cathy nods in agreement]
