    And when he did the voice and his mom answered, she had no clue who he was.

    He had to explain.

    He had to explain to everyone who he was. I love that. I will answer the phone that way sometimes too. It always made/makes me laugh.

    I liked one episode when Mr. Lucas answered the phone in a fey voice saying "Hello, Men's Wear....No, this is NOT Mr. Humphries!"

    That's the same one I thought of as I was reading this thread. That one still cracks me up.

    My favorite is when Mr. Humphries would answer the phone "Men's wear" in that deep voice, and then his voice would immediately go up several octaves as he said, "Oh hello, Mother!"
