She asks if he spent time in a Turkish prison only for Kelly to reply it happened in the movie Midnight Express she continues asking such questions, each time being told it happened in specific movies until she asks if he toured the Australian outback with a group of drag queens (The Adventures of Priscilla, Queen of the Desert) which Kelly jokingly says he did.
