JOHN TRAVOLTA and THE BABY WITH BRUCE WILLIS'S VOICE have just met a HUGE-BREASTED YOUNG WOMAN IN A SKIMPY TOP.

TRAVOLTA: Are you thinkin' what I'm thinkin'?

WILLIS: Lunch!

TRAVOLTA: Holy moly, you into that too?

WILLIS: You betcha!

TRAVOLTA: Okay, you make the first move. Maybe she'll pick you up or something. We'll take it from there.

[HBYWIAST picks up WILLIS]

HBYWIAST: Cootchy cootchy coo! Who's a cute little...

WILLIS: Something's wrong.

TRAVOLTA: Oh yeah?

WILLIS: She doesn't smell of milk. She smells of something else.

TRAVOLTA: Industrial-grade silicone?

WILLIS: That's it.

TRAVOLTA: Damn. So what do we do now?

WILLIS: Let's hightail it over to Goodreads. I hear it's Lactation Porn Week there.

TRAVOLTA: You know the Web hasn't been invented yet?

WILLIS: Whatever.
