BILL: They say power is the ultimate aphrodesiac. Hank, can you introduce me to Madeline Albright?
HANK: 1.6 gallons per flush per low-flow toilet. Sounds pretty good, doesn't it? But unfortunately, in the real world, where things don't flush the way they do in the movies, it can take three, four, or in the case of my wife Peggy Hill, six flushes to get completely remove solid waste. The fact is, these toilets are squandering more water than they are saving. Thank you.
