Gina It refers to the part where Cheryl and Clee are role-playing a scene from the self-defense DVD called "Gang Defense". There are three men in the scenario; two bad guys and the one in denim who "doesn't want trouble". Cheryl is confused as to which character Clee is playing at that moment, as she is switching between the three male characters. Clee says, "I'm the first man." Cheryl says, "The one in denim?" Clee answers, "The first bad man."
