Iffy is in his workout clothes, lifting a dumbbell with his right arm.
He thinks: Come on, Iffy, you can do better than this!
Now Iffy is lifting a huge dumbbell and smiling. His eyes are bulging.
He thinks: Now we’re pumping iron, baby!
Mimi, off camera, calls out to him: Iffy?
Iffy is asleep in his recliner with a bowl of potato chips in his lap, and a bag of gum drops in his hand. Mimi walks up to him.
She says: Iffy, wake up. You fell asleep eating junk food.
Iffy opens his eyes and looks up at Mimi.
He says: I was carb-loading with chips and gum drops before hitting the weights.
Mimi says: Right.
