Bryce: Okay, so what you do is you take something and pickle it. Lisa: First you make the brine. Bryce: No one knows this, but pickling brine is delicious on its own. Just as a drink! Here, try it! Lisa: I'd rather just eat something pickled, thanks. Anything other than just straight brine. Bryce: They call it a "pickleback"! Lisa: Instead let's pickle . . . hmm, what do we have around here . . . an egg? Bryce: Pickled eggs. You just, wow . . . you described- like, actually my dream food. Anyway, see you tomorrow. I'm going to go take a sleeping pill and try really hard to dream about eating a pickled egg. Lisa: Or we could just pickle this egg. Bryce: Let's pickle that. Right away. Bryce: And there are so many other things out there you can go ahead and pickle at home! Lisa: Carrots! Okra! Beets! Broccoli. . . Bryce: Shoes! Lisa: You're going to be great at pickling. You've got this! You can pickle this! We know you can pickle this . . . Bryce: Just pick something and go ahead and pickle it. We're rooting for you. Bryce: and Lisa: Pickle it!
