[Early evening. The quiet caesura between Community and 30 Rock. Palinode is brutalizing lemons on the coffee table. Schmutzie sits, dreaming of eventual lemon curd.]
Palinode: 3/4 cup of lemon juice. The recipe said that four lemons would produce one cup of lemon juice.
Palinode: This recipe lied to us.
Schmutzie: Maybe the writer has really big lemons.
Palinode: Maybe the writer’s an asshole.
Schmutzie: Maybe the writer is an asshole with really big lemons.
Palinode: Big-lemoned assholes are ruining the nation’s desserts.
