    Doesn't matter if it's made up -

    Bum, after lady hands him a pack of cigarettes: The whole pack?
    Lady: Yeah, take them, you can have 'em.
    Bum: That is so kind of you! I can't believe it! How can I repay you?
    Lady: No, no, just take them.
    Bum: I know what I will do! I will make love to your dog.
