Carol: "I'm collecting money for miscellaneous gag gifts."
"We've got upcoming birthdays, baby showers, retirements, promotions, blah, blah, blah."
"I'm collecting all of the gag gift money in advance."
"Then I'll take the bag of money and flush it down the toilet."
"That will be the gag. It's funny because a toilet is involved."
"So you can either give me $100 now or I'll be back twenty times at $5 a pop."
"You can't resist the siren call of a more efficient process. Give it up, engineer-boy!"
"Hello, sectional sofa!"
