  1. If the new stock of washrags is a million percent better quality, I think they deserve to be called washcloths, but you already knew that.

    I love the “phone voice” Sade adopts when she’s talking to her friends. So true to life — at least, to the way life used to be. Bernardine Flynn and Paul Rhymer both deserve a lot of credit for making those phone conversations seem real.

  2. I think that “phone voice” is still alive. How many times have you been angry as heck at somebody and the phone rings and you answer it with a gentle, “Hello?” Sade’s phone voice is great because it’s a phony voice. 🙂

  3. Hmm, wonder if “phone” and “phony” are etymologically related? Interesting…

  4. Thought about this earlier… PHONY comes from FAWNEY – an alteration of fawney gilt brass ring used by swindlers.

  5. I love the part where Vic asks Sade if she is going to “hide the gift from herself”. That’s funny! Good job Jimbo, a nice review of a nice episode!
