Two woman are taking a shower in a locker room.

"Where's the soap?" one asks.

"Yes, it sure does!" replies the other.

I'm sure you can do better.

Maybe if you tell us which word is the homonym? forgive the spaced out words. im on hubby’s netbook that does not like me much.
I once again have a dead computer after only 14 months with a new laptop. 2 months after warranty expire. i’m not a happy camper. 
I’m trying to decide if I should give up my life as I know it and join a convent.

There are tons of homonyms out there.

Here's an incomplete list: http://www.cooper.com/alan/homonym_list.html

Can you blame it?  From what it knows, you're a serial murderer of computers.

SOAP opera?

WEARS the soap? (washing 'wears' down the soap)

I think a lady showering 'wears down the soap', but....where's the towel?

You make me think of the movie "Charade" with Cary Grant and Audrey Hepburn. There's a scene in that movie where Cary Grant is in the shower with his suit on. What he tells Audrey Hepburn is that it's a wash and wear suit...points to a label in the jacket and says something like, "See? Says 'wash while wearing'!"

I was thinking of when she says she's a belly/ballet dancer. Maybe that was another film!

I'm pretty sure it was an Italian actress like Verna Lisi or Sophia Loren.

Off the top of my head, I can think of two movies that Sophia Loren and Cary Grant were in together.

The first one would be "The Pride and The Passion," or as I called when I was little, "The one about the cannon." Frank Sinatra was in that one, too. Ha! Now there's a triangle for you: Cary Grant, Sophia Loren, and Frank Sinatra!

The second would be "Houseboat." That might be the one actually. She plays the part of a dipolmat's daughter who has a habit of running away from her father. She becomes the maid for a wideower (Cary Grant) and his three children who live on a houseboat. She sings this little "Bing! Bang! Bong!" song.
