Quoting limited to 4 levels deep
I think Nicole said Minnesota man/Mississippi girl.
Lmao. She did. And I just realized that's not what I typed. So is that a thing?
It's from the lyrics of a song "What's Playing at the Roxy?" in "Guys and Dolls". LOL




What's playing at the Roxy?
I'll tell you what's playing at the Roxy.
A picture about a Minnesota man falls in love with a Mississippi girl
That he sacrifices everything and moves all the way to Biloxi.
That's what's playing at the Roxy.
As a musical theater fan, I'll tip my hat to the writer who came up with that reference, lol. And sure, it's dated. But Guys and Dolls is a piece that is being done constantly around the country in high school, college, and community theatre productions.

That bit is actually a lead in to the title song. And there are some lines there that remind me of EJ on NYE:

When a bum buys wine like a bum can't afford
It's a cinch that the bum is under the thumb of some little broad.
...
When a guy wears tails with the front gleaming white
Who the hell do you think he's tickling pink on Saturday night?
...
Call it sad, call it funny.
But it's better than even money
That the guy's only doing it for some doll.
