Advert: "New Pie phone: HD screen, 8 core processor, 120mpx camera. So kool it will fill your hole!!!"

Eric: "Hurry up and take my money!"

Eric experiences a brief moment of satisfaction.

Advert: "Pie phone not kool. Mega HD screen, 9 core processor, 121mpx camera. Pie phone 2, the only way to fill your new hole."

Eric: "Sigh."


Eric: "Why oh why can't women turn off the lights?"

Erica: "Eric! You've got a problem!"

Droopy: "Dude, it's the doughnuts. You're an addict!"

Droopy: " You eat them when you're sad."

Eric: "I haven't got a problem."

Eric: "Dough! I mean, Sigh!"

Eric: "I'm going to become a Superhero."

Erica: "This is going to end in a sigh isn't it?"
