Title: So you want a computer eh?
Post by: rgfixit on Mar 14, 2004, 03:12 PM

ABBOTT: Super Duper Computer Store... Can I help you?
COSTELLO: Thanks. I'm setting up an office in my den, and I'm thinking about
     buying a computer.
COSTELLO: No, the name's Lou.
ABBOTT: Your computer?
COSTELLO: I don't own a computer. I want to buy one.
COSTELLO: I told you, my name's Lou.
ABBOTT: What about Windows?
COSTELLO: Why? Will it get stuffy in here?
ABBOTT: Do you want a computer with windows?
COSTELLO: I don't know. What will I see when I look in the windows?
ABBOTT: Wallpaper.
COSTELLO: Never mind the windows. I need a computer and software.
ABBOTT: Software for windows?
COSTELLO: No. On the computer! I need something I can use to run my business.
     What have you got?
ABBOTT: Office.
COSTELLO: Yeah, for my office. Can you recommend anything?
ABBOTT: I just did.
COSTELLO: You just did what?
ABBOTT: Recommend something.
COSTELLO: You recommended something?
COSTELLO: For my office?
COSTELLO: OK, what did you recommend for my office?
ABBOTT: Office.
COSTELLO: Yes, for my office!
ABBOTT: I recommend office with windows.
COSTELLO: I already have an office and it has windows! OK, let's just say,
     I'm sitting at my computer and I want to type a proposal. What do I need?
ABBOTT: word.
COSTELLO: what word?
ABBOTT: word in office.
COSTELLO: the only word in office is office.
ABBOTT: the word in office for windows.
COSTELLO: which word in office for windows?
ABBOTT: the word you get when you click the blue w
COSTELLO: I'm going to click your blue w if you don't start with some straight
     answers. OK, forget that. Can I watch movies on the Internet?
ABBOTT: yes, you want real one.
COSTELLO: maybe a real one, maybe a cartoon. What I watch is none of your
     business. Just tell me what I need!
ABBOTT: real one.
COSTELLO: if it's a long movie I also want to see reel 2,3&4.
     Can I watch them?
ABBOTT: of course.
COSTELLO: great, with what?
ABBOTT: real one.
COSTELLO: OK, I'm at my computer and I want to watch a movie. What do I do?
ABBOTT: you click the blue 1.
COSTELLO: I click the blue one what?
ABBOTT: the blue 1.
COSTELLO: is that different from the blue w?
ABBOTT: the blue 1 is Realone and the blue w is word.
COSTELLO: what word?
ABBOTT: the word in office for windows.
COSTELLO: but there's three words in office for windows!
ABBOTT: no, just one. but it's the most popular word in the world
COSTELLO: it is?
ABBOTT: yes, but to be fair, there aren't many other words left? amp; nbsp;
     It pretty much wiped out all the other words out there.
COSTELLO: and that word is real one?
ABBOTT: real one has nothing to do with word. Real one isn't even part of office.
COSTELLO: stop! Don't start that again. What about bookkeeping, do you have
     anything I can track my money with?
ABBOTT: money.
COSTELLO: that's right. What do you have?
ABBOTT: money.
COSTELLO: I need money to track my money?
ABBOTT: it comes bundled with your computer.
COSTELLO: what's bundled to my computer?
ABBOTT: money.
COSTELLO: money comes with my computer?
ABBOTT: yes. No extra charge.
COSTELLO: I get a bundle of money with my computer? How much?
ABBOTT: one copy.
COSTELLO: isn't it illegal to copy money?
ABBOTT: Microsoft gave us a license to copy money.
COSTELLO: they can give you a license to copy money?
ABBOTT: why not, they own it.
