Oliver: Samantha, allow me to express the United Nations' eternal gratitude for your role in averting a devastating conflict. I award you the Order of the 1998 National Girls Singles Champion.
Samantha: Where's my money?
Oliver: I, er, set it down on the refreshments table and it was eaten. I'll personally see to it that replacement funding is included in next year's budget.
Samantha: Be sure to factor in the 23.99% APR!
Caption: Meanwhile, in 1955
Walter Winchell: Sigh. What's the point of inventing a cross-temporal telephone if no one returns your calls?
Caption: THE END
