    • *Vint is recording his outgoing message* Vint: Hello. I am speaking to you from a Satusbishi 1200. No kidding; this baby is loaded: dual micro tapes, remote control, unlimited message, voice activated. Uh, it’s in the wood tone finish. Mama: WILL YOU KNOCK IT OFF! What are you gonna do next, read the warranty?!

    • *Iola plays the outgoing message that she had on her answering machine, which is in a dull voice* Mama: Well Iola, you forgot, “The white zone is for loading and unloading of passengers only.”

    • *Naomi records her outgoing message in a sexy voice* Mama: Good Lord Naomi, it’s supposed to be a phone message, not foreplay.

    • *Bubba records his outgoing message as Elvis* Bubba: What do ya think? Mama: Well, it makes me wanna step on your blue, suede head. Iola: Oh, was that Elvis? I thought you were doin’ Nixon.

    • Mama: I can remember where I put the soup bone. Vint: Well, gee, I guess you’re becoming forgetful in your old age. Mama: Maybe so. Lately it’s been slipping my mind to slap you silly!
