Milt: OK, OK. You two stop laughing at me already!
Ash: It's OK, Milt. My best friend was almost scammed last week by someone claiming to be her cousin! It was past midnight. She was asleep and barely thinking straight. The “cousin” said she was in serious trouble and needed cash to escape. My friend was halfway to the ATM, pajamas and all, before she thought to ask how Uncle Jiang is doing.
Milt: What good is that? She'd say, “fine”, of course.
Ash: Of course she did, but the “cousin” didn't know she doesn't have an Uncle Jiang.
