Joe Marshall: Bingo.

Nurse: Well then let’s see what you’ve got…

Joe Marshall: Nothing there? Just exactly what would interest you, something the size of a jumbo jet?

Nurse: Have you been circumcised?

Joe Marshall, the samurai cop: Yeah I have, why?

Nurse: Your doctor must have cut a large portion off.
