What? -In Afula.

Sarah with the short leg.

No, I didn't.

?117.40 Thank you.

-This is really bugging me.

I'll figure it out.

Signature and

phone number, please.

Sure you didn't work there?

-No, I swear.

Okay, sorry.

Don't forget your coupons.


It's a special offer.

Collect coupons and win prizes.

Forget it. -But why?

First prize is a weekend

for two in Turkey.

I'm not into those things.

Thanks anyway.

You sure turn him on. -Who me?

Me, turn on a guy like that?

-You bet!

Hey, Davy. -What?

Why don't your rabbits

have kids?

They're both males, Shimon.

Hope they don't screw in the ass.

You have the soul of a poet.

Why do you change into pajamas

when you get home?

Tradition, Shimon.


My grandfather did it.

He made my Dad swear to do it.

And I swore to my Dad

I'd do the same.

Yeah, but why?

With tradition

you don't ask why.

The minute you do

it's all over.

and you're eating pork.

-I don't eat pork!

I didn't say you did!

Nothing to do with tradition

or religion. It gives me gas.

You're one of a kind, Shimon.

Can a guy get some tea here?

-Sure, but first pick a card.

I can't believe it.

You haven't moved.

A cup of tea and I'm leaving.

No, Shimon. Don't go.

I may need help getting him in the tub.

We have a Bar Mitzvah in Afula

and he hasn't bathed in days.

Men don't have to bathe every day.

I forgot. You're

Davy's philosopher friend.

Lay off!

Shimon, how do you manage

without working?

David's got it made,

but you live alone.

How do you do it?

I get social security.

-Great invention. That's enough?

I don't need much.

Eggs for breakfast.

Cheese for lunch, and chicken once a week.

I'll make you some tea.

He'll never get off his ass.

Know your problem, Batya?

-What? -You're too practical.
