  • Tony's father tells a story about how his uncle always used to ask for 'breast' when his aunt was serving the chicken, and so, when he was asked, Jim would ask for thigh, as it was the least sexy thing he could think of. Tony and Effy have been quietly laughing at him together, until Jim announces the thigh joke, to which Tony replies that thighs can be sexy and that there are lots of things one can do with thighs. Jim, disheartened, replies that you can't, and then asks what part of the chicken everyone wants. Tony's response? "I'll have a bit of thigh, please."
