    • Matt: (After telling George off for paying his debt) You're a funny guy, George.
      George: Do you really think so? I've been trying to improve my sense of humor.
      Matt: No, no, no, no. What I meant was--
      George: Humor is the hardest thing to translate though. I -- I did hear a new joke, though.
      Matt: (Clearing his throat) Oh, yeah?
      George: Yes, sir. A man came up to me and asked, "Which way is it to Carnegie Hall?" and I said, "practice." (Laughs) It's a funny joke. (Laughs again) Do you understand?
      Matt: Yeah, yeah, yeah.
      George: Practice
      Matt: It's close, George. It's real close. You know, it might be a smidge more effective if you said: "How do you get to Carnegie Hall?"
      George: Oh?
      Matt: Trust me.
      Matt and George: How do you get to Carnegie Hall?
      Matt: (Pats George on the shoulder) That's it. Keep workin' it. You'll be ready to take it on the road real soon.
