What's a 'normal' amount of bacon?

No, seriously. I know all of the joke answers.

A John Wayne movie was playing today, and a woman was going to make his character breakfast. He wanted four eggs and 'plenty of bacon'. In my mind, I imagined him chowing down on half a pound (before cooking) of bacon. It seems to me that restaurants tend to serve two rashers of bacon. At home, a normal serving for me is four.

So what's the 'traditional, America' serving of bacon?
