Then she remembers there is a life outside of these walls and asks about the soap business. We learn that they haven't told "Barney's" that Piper is in jail, and that the VERY pregnant Paulie doesn't want to expand their business while Piper is unable to help. Larry complains that he & Piper need the missing income... BUT doesn't offer to help. Piper suggests a phone conference with their liaison at Barney's to foster the lie that everything is normal with the soap company.
If those people were any more self absorbed they would have been sucked into another dimension.

Also he will now be very busy worrying about Piper dropping the soap, perhaps soap is just a trigger word for him and he can't be pouring all those blueberries and spices into molds without thinking about his precious Piper picking pussy over him. That tongue twister would surely be his personal torture the day it entered his head, an ear worm straight to the brain.
