Allen on relationships

Heard this on telly, after getting back from work on Saturday morning

[I am trying my best to recollect from memory, so it is not quite verbatim]

Woody Allen: Relationships reminds me of the joke in which a guy runs into the doctor's room and tells him that his brother has a problem. On being asked what is it the chap replies that his brother thinks that he is a hen. The doctor asks then why did he not bring his brother along? To which the chap replies that he will once he gets an egg delivered from him.

Relationships are strange and absurd and we still put up with them because all of us are waiting for the egg to be delivered it seems", he concludes.
