3. I'd bid on it, but I hear it needs all new carpet and paint.
Jeez, for that, I can get something really great.

13. Not on me
But I think if I sell the ski Chalet in Switzerland, the mansion in Beverly Hills and my Bently with diamond-encrusted hubcaps I might be able to scrape it together.

16. did you see/ do you remember
the episode of Mary Tyler Moore. Ted owed Murray $8 and every time Murray asked for it, Ted would ask if he had change for a $500. Finally at the end of the show, Murray says "as a matter of fact I do" and picks up a huge bag of coins. Ted goes "oh no, not quarters." and Murray says "Nickels, Ted, nickels."

17. No, I don't remember that show
but that is effing hiliarous! If I was a rich meiser, and if I was a prick at the same time(seems to go hand in hand sometimes), I would give away a million bucks every now and then, but give it away in truck loads of pennies! :) And watch the penny rollers unite!

18. I understand that back in the day
Rockefeller or Vanderbilt used to throw handfuls of dimes around and watch people scramble for them. That, however, was back when you could probably get ten candybars for a dime.
