"Alex, did I ever tell you about an 'alligator suitcase' on a transcontinental flight a few years ago?"

"Probably not, Alex. I mean, it would just give you some blackmail material on your father. You probably wouldn't want to..."

"Hey, hey... I'm listening."

"Well, it was twelve years ago -- before your parents were married. Apparently one of your father's... acquaintances..."

"Someone he had screwed in some business deal?"

"Well, her name was Jennifer..."
