Orr the juize will get out, and it'll be no good! They'rre
brreaking in wiz fingerrz, depth charrgez! Let ze peel
come off only in zmall chunkz! [peeling] Shit! Jesus
Christ! They'rre brreaking in! Push all the pipz into
bitz they wouldn't expect, that'll do! [pushing pips
'Cause it is! There's no chance of someone eating an
- Hey! [choking due to a pip] You're very nice ...
