'''Gloria:''' Some kind of singing. They sound like all kinds of people, right?\\
'''Guy on Phone:''' Yeah.\\
'''Gloria:''' And then it says, "Another child is born in India every time you call this number," right?\\

'''Gloria:''' "...speak another language."\\
'''Guy on Phone:''' Yeah. Oh.\\
'''Gloria:''' They meet at La Met--La Maisonette restaurant. They give you the price. Then they give you another number to call if you're interested. This guy... all you get is this here recording, but u-w--I don't see how he makes money.\\

'''Guy on Phone:''' No.\\
'''Gloria:''' But, that's--then he's a nut, right? Do you see--do you see any sense to that? "There May Be Giants?" That reco--that recording I have on. The new one. Did you hear it? I changed it. I took off the intellectuals. I put on There May Be Giants.\\
'''Guy in Background:''' What?\\
'''Gloria:''' Who's They May Be Giants?\\
'''Guy in Background:''' What are you talking about?\\
'''Gloria:''' That's what's on my--the phone, There May Be G-- well I can't explain it, 'cause I don't know what it is.\\
'''Guy in Background:''' (unintelligible muttering) you could make sense once in a while.\\
'''Gloria:''' Look in the paper! Don't blame me if the guy's a nut.
