Jim:
If all you're gonna do is complain

then we can just forget about it.

Jeanne:
If you ask me

she doesn't need a permanent.

Jeanne:
She hasn't been

very good this week. She's sassed.

- Jim:
What?

- Aurelie:
Come on, please.

- Jim:
Jeanne...

- Jeanne:
Well?

Jim:
Okay.

Come on.

Just pull it,

pinch it, pop it,

and let me show you why.

Here you'll notice

that the whitehead

is just filled with oozy puss.

Barry:

That oozy puss is...

- Hairdresser:
Hey, Come on in.

- Barry:
...you just pull

and pop.

Or squeeze and pop.

Barry:
But be sure...

- What are looking to get done?

- Jeanne:
A permanent.

Have you done

one of those before?

Hairdresser:
Lord, yes.

Absolutely, yes, ma'am!

I have done several perms

and they turned out just fine.

That's great!

See, Aurelie?

Are you a professional?

Five more weeks.

Yes, I am.

O- ray-lie?

That's your name?

It's French.

Really?

So, do ya'll speak French?

No, just English.

Well, her name was

supposed to be Angie.

Then, right when

I was about to have her,

I ran into this French nurse.

She talked me into Aurelie...

At the time,

I liked that it wasn't

just the same old thing.

Yeah, well,

that's real interesting.

Hairdresser:

So, do ya'll want small ones?

- Um...

- Small equals a tighter curl.

I want ringlets, really soft

and natural looking.

The kind I can blow dry

and brush through, to wings.

Yeah, right!

We wanna get our money's worth.

We don't want to spend

20 whole dollars,

and have it all

just fall out right away.

Hmm.

You need help

with anything, hon?

Nope.

Nope, I'm good.

Just looking,

my wife likes these.

Just checking out the styles?

- Yeah.

- Maylene:
Sure.

My name's Maylene.

You just give a holler

if you need anything.

How much you sell them for?
