Helen: Hmm, Pita. Well, I don't know about food from the Middle East. Isn't that whole area a little iffy?

Hostess: [laughs] Hey, I'm no geographer. You and I -- why don't we call it pocket bread, huh?

Maude: [reading the ingredients list] Umm, what's tahini?

Hostess: Flavor sauce.

Edna: And falafel?

Hostess: Crunch patties.

Helen: So, we'd be selling foreign...

Hostess: Specialty foods. Here, try a Ben Franklin.

Helen: [takes a bite] Mmm, that is good. What's in it?

Chef: [poking his head out of a window, looking of Indian origin]
Tabbouleh and rezmi-kabob.

Hostess: [trying to cover-up] Uh, th-that's our chef... Christopher.
