When Steve and Roger prank call the U.N. Ambassador from Israel, he is sitting next to the Ambassador from Syria. And behind them, the Egyptian Ambassador is sitting next to the one from Jordan. The problem is that at the beginning of each U.N. session, one country is chosen at random. They will occupy the first seat. Then the rest will go in English alphabetical order. So, Egypt's neighbor would have been either Ecuador or El Salvador, Israel's would have been Ireland or Italy, Jordan's would have been Japan or Kazakhstan, and Syria's would have been Switzerland or Tajikistan. And on a separate note, Syria would have actually been called the Syrian Arab Republic.
Roger: What? What's wrong?
Steve: Argentina just *69'ed us.
