Inherit a nose

The scene: a crowded LA restaurant. At the centre table sits a lesbian couple on a first date. One of the women talks loud enough for everyone else to eavesdrop.
She says,

“Yeah the main reason I had the nose job was that I want my kids to have cute noses.”
The restaurant falls silent.

The woman looks round,

“What? What?! … Oh I get it – it’s because we’re gay, right? Well hey, get over it. Lesbians can have children too, you know!”
