Marjorie: No, I'll tell you what you should be doing, Chris, and that's getting some exercise. [to Meera] Oh, that reminds me, a lot of hidden calories in curry. You can exercise anything really, football, jogging... football. I do ten minutes of six step aerobics every month, and that's why I'm so thin.
Chris: You're not thin, you're fat.
Marjorie: I'm sorry?!
Meera, Pat, Paul: Not thin, you're fat.
