Who has sex in the bathroom of a private plane?
Well, when I get my own G4, that could be a future priority.
[Laughs] Wait, maybe not priority, but a future goal that I'll fulfill.
Goal? Your priorities are out of whack, sweetie. Where's your head at?
That came out wrong. You're right, maybe not a goal but aâ€¦
