A group of five construction guys, huddled near a big white pickup truck outside a fancy Victorian house on Guerrero Street. Their foreman is giving each of them a 2013 wall calendar with a bikini-clad blond woman crouching suggestively on the cover.

HOMBRE UNO: ¡Oh, si, para montar en casa!
HOMBRE DOS: No, no en la casa; mi mujer me va a matar. In el carro.

Roughly translated as...

GUY ONE: Oh, yeah, for hanging up in the house!
GUY TWO: No, not in the house; my wife will kill me. In the truck.
