Banderooge [Standing behind couch that Stuart is sitting on reading a magazine]: Stu -- remember that day you were on the phone with your mom, arguing about our first phone bill?

Stuart: Sure!
    Stuart: It took me 45 minutes to convince her to send me an extra ten bucks for it!     Banderooge: Did she send it?

Stuart: Yeah, why?
    Banderooge: The new bill came today. That was a twelve dollar call.

[Stuart puts his face in his hand]

[Long-distance calling was much more expensive in 1981, as there was no Internet and AT&T didn't announce settlement with the US Department of Justice anti-trust division until 1/8/1982.]
