Hank Morgan (m), an Aryan hunk; Schlomi Finklestein (m), Jewish, a figment of Shoshanah’s imagination; Shoshanah Rabinowitz (f), an unmarried daughter, saftig (hefty, juicy, pleasingly plump, rubenesque, buxom, embonpoint, voluptuous).
“Shoshanah Rabinowitz has spent her life trying to please her Jewish parents; yet, she is dating uber-Catholic Hank Morgan. After lighting the Shabbat candles on Friday night, Shoshanah receives a visit from Schlomi Finklestein, a figment of her imagination who will not go away until she stands up to her parents’ nagging.
“A table with two Shabbat candles and a pizza box are the only prop requirements.”
