paper basket to put in .. a waste paper basket ... Bert, have you seen my waste paper basket?

E: Well, you see Bert, I can't think of anything to write right now, Bert. But, when I DO
think of something, I have it all planned. And thanks to you Bert, I couldn't have done it without
you. Mmm Mmm Mmm Mmm.
(Bert rests his head on the basket and shakes it in disappointment)
