You're just a box of chocolate.                       
Don’t know what you are.                                 
Don’t know what you’re getting.                     
Don’t know what you’re getting into.                            
Don’t know why you’re getting involved.                   
Don’t know why you’re ruining lives.


You want to be a carbon copy or you want my pink slip?               

May be you want to be Benjamin Franklin a counterfeit?       

Here’s a receipt for you.               

Copy this Xerox.                         

This is just a legal formality.                     

May be you want my identity?                    

Here’s my driver’s license.                         

Funny, don’t look like you.                            

You don’t have a clue, do you?                  

Dam, I thought I was white.                          
May be I’m black.                                    

No, I’m really Asian.                             

Says here you're 6  foot  1.               

Sure look like a midget.                                

Not to offend anyone.                     

Says here you’re a female.     

Strut like a Broadway dancer.    

You look pretty good for a cross-dresser.                         

I could be mistaken, though.                        

May be you’re a pimp?

You’re a preacher.           

Where’s your white collar?   

I wish I had a dollar.                                     

I’d give you one for your congregation.                              

May be you’re in public relations?                    

Stop, get the press.                              

Get Mike Wallace.                                     

He’ll put a rest to this in 60 Minutes.               

Can you get him out of retirement?        

Oh, you’re in entertainment.                              

Dam, here goes the whole song.      

Sound the gongs!                     

I had you all wrong.        

You wrote this, Ms. Swiss.              

Oh, you want my credit cards, which one my Visa or Master Card.

Sorry, we don’t accept American Express Card.                    

Please; can I get one more item from Hallmark?                      

Is just a greeting card for my nephew?          

Thank you, come again soon, I’m a postmaster, too.                      

You got to be kidding me, post this Swiss Miss.                      

Get off my Pony Express!                               

Quit stealing for us.              

In God we trust.
