Try to have a good

Thanksgiving, okay?

Shut up.

Did my wife call? Uh, yeah.

You're all set for the cruise.

You guys leave a week

after Hanukkah.

Okay, all right.

There's some good news.

Yeah. She converted, right'?

That's so cool.

She doesn't look Jewish at all.

Wow. That was anti-Semitic.

What? No, I just...

See, I can say that, you can't.

Okay, okay, I see him.

All right, I'm hanging up.

How are we doing?

Where were you?
