Iggy says that someone has probably forgotten it there. Then Iggy and Tom discuss that they have stopped smoking and how good it is. Now that they have stopped, Tom concludes they can smoke. Both smoke a cigarette and enjoy it very much. On the one hand, there seem to be a real pleasure by smoking.
