The boys are in a bar, as always talking about girls and sex, this time focusing on their obsession with female breasts and the fantasy the left and right ones would somehow be two separate entities, doubling their fascination, or be doubled: enough to contemplate a SciFi plot. When desperate single Jeff spots a nice-looking girl, Steve and Patrick encourage him to make a move after she shows sole interest, but first have to learn and wave his theory of the nude zone: a male (at least in his case) cannot remain in female presence for more then a few minutes before his mind has constructed a fully nude image of the girl, which renders him too horny-mad to retain command of any decent faculty, hence disables any flirting.

Several of "Shaddaim"'s motions in the English and "Israeli" sequences do not match: the point at which she puts the book down, the behavior of her hands after she puts them to her ears and so on. See more »


Steve Taylor: There are times I worry about the way you see women.
Jeff: I see women as people in their own right.
Patrick Maitland: In many ways, they *are*.
Steve Taylor: You see women as transport for breasts!
Jeff: Hey, I can see past breasts now, Steve. I need more than that.
Steve Taylor: Yeah, I can tell.
Jeff: I need breasts with brains. I don't mean *individual* brains, obviously. Besides, you give breasts the power of independent thought, and the next thing is, they don't get on. There's a clash of personalities.
