Driving home that Iranians are dirty

Betty Mahmoody : What's so funny?

Moody : You know, they think we make love all the time.

Betty Mahmoody : Who?

Moody : The family.

Betty Mahmoody : Why?

Moody : Well... because here, you know, after they make love, they have to take a shower because, you know, they can't pray unless they do, you know. It's considered unclean. And we're taking two, three showers a day!

[Moody continues laughing]

Betty Mahmoody : Oh God! What do they think? We're two rabbits or something!

[Betty is now laughing]

Betty Mahmoody : I'm not taking another shower the whole time I'm here. You *knew* that the whole time!

Moody : They didn't know you were such a swinger!

Betty Mahmoody : You knew that all the long! They were all giggling every time we took a shower.[1]
