JERRY: Alright, thank you!
JERRY: ...And welcome to the show. Has your partner ever cheated on you, disrespected you or thrown you out? Today we're gonna be talkin' to couples whose relationships are going wrong. Our first guest is Iran, who says that her man badmouths her in front of his friends and goes through her things looking for evidence she's been cheating. She says that he needs to change if their relationship is going to work. Come on out, Iran!
(Music, cheers, IRAN walks on stage, pumping the air and whooping, sits).

Iran: "America gots to show me some respect".
JERRY: And you've got something you'd like to say to him today?

(AMERICA emerges, loud booing, hissing. AMERICA walks to the front of the stage, throwing gangsta hand shapes and hitting his chest).
AMERICA: What? What y'all beefin' at, huh? Y'all want some, huh?
JERRY: Okay, America, sit on down now. Your girl has something she'd like to say to you. Go on, Iran.
