Adam then went downstairs to the battery drawer, he’s taking it back to his construction site to reference “We got a Dime, holding up a Dollar” to describe his battery nightmare.
Adam is now reading the tally of batteries in his drawer, there were nineteen 9 volts the most exotic of all the batteries.

Adam is sharing how everyone over 40 would have fetal alcohol syndrome if this truly was as big of an issue as it was made out to be.

Both Adam and Alison are perplexed how someone so young and frankly pretty could choose to hang herself.
They’re both commenting on how typically women don’t use violent means for ending their own lives, Alison has a nice comment about the details she wants revealed as she’s a “sicko”.

Alison wants to know if it’s all media hype or if California has the tits to back it up, BB has a telling “What do you mean we” which is probably explained by his former body type and also clues us into the parody song aimed at Mike Lynch he contributed to.
Adam is using his buddy Ray with his perfect physique who only drinks and smokes, as Alison puts it “ripped and unhealthy”.
Adam is now suggesting we let the prisoners die of starvation to eliminate the overcrowding, Alison has a great legal point that makes this idea seem not so harsh.
Adam is saying he would provide “hanging pipes/belts” in each prisoner’s cell, giving them the option to end their life if they so choose.
Alison is remarking on the incongruous idea of preventing inmates from suicide while not having concern for them, this sounds akin to the right to life movement and their take on children once they’re born.

BB is now arguing that work ethic can be classified as talent in its own way, it doesn’t all have to be artistic ability.
