BLOUNT JR: Their children.

SAGAL: No, no, although some people think of these as children, which is annoying.

BLOUNT JR: Their pets.

SAGAL: Yes. Their pets are incompatible.

(SOUNDBITE OF BUZZER)

SAGAL: Single people often have pets, right? - because they were single. They got a pet. And when singles couple up, sometimes their pets don't get along because dogs and cats will not give up their standards even if you have.

(LAUGHTER, APPLAUSE)

BLOUNT JR: Your cat takes you aside and said, where did you find this guy?

SAGAL: Yeah.

BLOUNT JR: Really?

BABYLON: Yeah. Ever caught in eye contact with a judgmental cat? It's the worst.

(LAUGHTER)

BLOUNT JR: I had a beautiful - this was many years ago. I had a beautiful leather jacket.

BABYLON: Yeah.

BLOUNT JR: And I left it out overnight. And you know what a male cat will do.

SAGAL: Yes.

HELEN HONG: Oh.

BLOUNT JR: On my beautiful leather jacket...

HONG: Oh, no.

BABYLON: So is that - it's the cat's jacket now.

BLOUNT JR: I took it to the cleaner, and they just threw me out. They wouldn't believe deal with it.

HONG: The cat was being possessed then.

SAGAL: This was in the home of a - perhaps of a young lady of your acquaintance?

BLOUNT JR: Yes.

SAGAL: I see. And what then happened with that relationship?

BLOUNT JR: That was a - I really loved that...

(LAUGHTER)

BLOUNT JR: I really cared about the leather coat.

SAGAL: All right.

(LAUGHTER)
