Woman: I’ve said to the doctor, I need something stronger.

Man: What did he tell you to take for it?

Man: The ibuprofen … that’s

Woman: You know what he told me? He told me I need to relax. Re-lax. I said, buddy, I have two jobs, and you want me to relax? You want me to RELAX? Yeah, right. Right. Right.
