Avengers: Sim, alô, Gov. Palin.

Palin: Alô, é a Sarah, como vai?

Avengers: Muito bem, e a senhora? Aqui é o Nicolas Sarkozy falando, como vai?

Palin: Oh, é tão bom falar com o senhor. Obrigada por telefonar.

Avengers: Oh, é um prazer.

Palin: Obrigada, nós temos um tamanho respeito pelo senhor, eu e John McCain. Nós amamos o senhor e obrigada por dedicar alguns minutos pra falar comigo.

Avengers: Eu estou acompanhando a campanha de perto com meu conselheiro especial americano Johnny Hallyday, a senhora sabe...
Palin: Sim, muito bom.

Avengers: Excelente. A senhora está confiante?

Palin: Muto confiante e nós …
