AMY: You know what my biggest mom fantasy is? Having a quiet breakfast…by myself.
Kiki and Carla nod in agreement.
CARLA: Yeah, that’s hot.
KIKI: Sometimes when I’m driving and I’m all alone I fantasize about getting into a car crash. Not like a big car crash with fire and explosions, just like a little one, and then I get to go to the hospital for two weeks and I sleep all day and watch TV and eat jello and it’s all covered by insurance and my family comes and they’re so nice to me and Kent has tears in his eyes and he pretends it’s hay fever but we all know why he’s crying, we all know, and my kids bring balloons and the nurses rub cream on my feet and oh my God it’s so amazing…
Kiki notices Amy and Carla looking at her like she’s nuts.
KIKI:Is that like…something you guys fantasize about too?
AMY AND CARLA: No.
