ME: (click)... no, this time is good... I've pulled out... What's on your mind, I'm Not Cheap?
IMNOTCHEAP: That's it! I'm not cheap!
ME: Uh-huh. Nice to meet you. And I'm el Duque.
IMNOTCHEAP: No, that's just it! I'M... NOT... CHEAP!
ME: Yes, thanks for calling, I'm Not Cheap. What's on your mind?
IMNOTCHEAP: Stop calling me I'm Not Cheap, because I'm not cheap!
ME: I don't understand?
IMNOTCHEAP: (Howls into phone.) I'M NOT CHEAP!
ME: El Duque!
IMNOTCHEAP: No, you don't get it! You say I'm Not Cheap. BUT I'M NOT CHEAP.
ME: You're absolutely right, I'm Not Cheap.
IMNOTCHEAP: No, I'm not. I'm NOT I'm Not Cheap!
BACKGROUND VOICE: Who the hell are you talking to?
ME (to background voice.): I'm Not Cheap.
IMNOTCHEAP: No! No! No! It's not I'm Not Cheap. It's me, and I'M NOT CHEAP!
ME: And I'm El Duque. What can I do for you, I'm Not Cheap?
IMNOTCHEAP: Bahhhhhhh! (To someone off phone) Cashman, I told you this wouldn't work! (Back to receiver.) You're not listening. For the last time... I'M... NOT... CHEAP!
ME: El Duque! Pleased to talk with you. So, I'm Not Cheap, who's on first? Ha. That's a joke...
