(pause) It doesn't matter which finger. (pause) Good choice. (pause) Now, move it down to your email icon. (pause) Th-that little envelope! (pause) What do you mean "what does it look like"? It looks like an envelope!! (pause) Fine, you don't like the computer? Don't use it! (pause) Sure, we can exchange it for a salad spinner! Goodbye! (Howard sighs)

    • Raj: Last night I had a dream we got so rich from the app, you and I bought matching, side-by-side mansions. But, there was a secret tunnel connecting your front yard to my back yard. What do you think that means?
