Jasmine: Stop smoking, Eric! It's not good for your health.
Eric: That's what you think. But I'm actually doing it for my own good.
Jasmine: I'm sure that there's nothing good about smoking.

Jasmine: Come on! Let's get the facts straight. You are going to die of lung cancer before you get Parkinson's disease!
