Mia: You got that right. You're not hating are you, Steve?
Steve: No, but how does being powerful equal romance?
Mia: I read somewhere that Gen. Petraeus runs a six-minute mile. If he's that fit on a running trail, he's probably a beast in bed.
Steve: Somehow I don't think Henry Kissinger was a beast in bed, yet when he was secretary of state, he was always out with starlets.
Mia: He must have been good at something in bed. Don't get it twisted, Steve. Smart is sexy. It's not all about how a guy looks.
Steve: Good point. Look at Mick Jagger.
Mia: Do you think Petraeus' wife has lawyered up yet?
Steve: One thing's for sure, the general's been busted down to private at home.
Mia: And he's lost his job. Hope the sex was worth it.
Steve: That's the problem with illicit sex. The thrill doesn't last long. Losing your job and your marriage lasts forever.
Mia: Truly a dumb move.
Steve: Finally, these two women connected to the two generals are both married to doctors! Doctors wear uniforms and have the power of life and death. How does a general trump a doctor in the uniform and power department?
Mia: Face it, Steve. Women are a lot like men. Chris Rock was onto something when he said, "A man is basically as faithful as his options." The same holds true for a lot of women as well.
