RENEE: You have a nice weenie.
RENEE: You have a nice penis.
GALLIMARD: Oh. Well, thank you. That’s very…
RENEE: What—can’t take a compliment?
GALLIMARD: No, its very…reassuring.
RENEE: But most girls don’t come out and say it, huh?
GALLIMARD: And also... what did you call it?
RENEE: Oh. Most girls don't call it a "weenie," huh?
GALLIMARD: It sounds very -
RENEE: Small, I know.
GALLIMARD: I was going to say, "young."
RENEE: Yeah. Young, small, same thing. Most guys are pretty, uh, sensitive about that. Like, you know, I had a boyfriend back home in Denmark. I got mad at him once and called him a little weeniehead. He got so mad! He said at least I should call him a great big weeniehead.
GALLIMARD: I suppose I just say "penis."
RENEE: Yeah, That's pretty clinical. There's "cock," but that sounds like a chicken. And "prick" is painful, and "dick" is like you're talking about someone who's not in the room.
GALLIMARD: Yes. It's a... bigger problem than I imagined.
RENEE: I - I think maybe it's because I really don't know what to do with them - that's why I call them "weenies."
