    -Yes, sir.
    -How many times have you seen Chris?
    -I don’t know. One too many, apparently.

    -But I was also first in my radar class in the Navy, and that was a class of 20. Can I say something?

    -Yeah, I’ll give you a call tomorrow sometime–
    -What are you talking–? You hounded me for this. You stood here–
    -Listen, there’s no salary.
    I was not aware of that. My circumstances have changed some and I need to be certain that I’ll be–
    -All right. Okay.
