"[W]omen's eclectic appetites have created the civilized world as we know it"

Gina: Social historians concede that civilization arose and prospered from men accomplishing things to impress — and thus to bed — women.

Imagine what civilization would be like if it had to arise from women impressing men.

Gene: I’m trying.
