Page Type: trope
Character picks up the phone and instead of just saying hello, gives a joke greeting or a funny way of answering. Maybe they pretend to be somebody else, or a business, or maybe they just say confusing things for their own amusement.
Can occur as a Running Gag.
Film - Live Action
- In the The Odd Couple, Oscar answers the phone by saying "Yo, divorced, broke, and sloppy!"
- The various answers Moe from The Simpsons gives when he answers the phone in the bar, like "Moe's Tavern, where the elite meet to drink."
