“Is this a joke?”

“Of course not; it's real money.”

“Are you some kind of nut job? Paper money went out of circulation more than fifty years ago.”

“No way, I took this from my bank account yesterday.”

“Listen doll, paper money is illegal, so beat it.”

“The name's Cindy – not doll, and you're a cranky pot if there ever was one.”

“Cranky pot? The name is Henry Watson Culver the Third, and the only legal tender are creds.”

“Creds? Never heard of it.”

“Go back to your bank and ask for creds.”

“It's on the other side of town, such a long walk.”

“Take the people mover.”

“What's a people mover?”

“You a prankster too? Everyone knows about the people movers.”

“Ah . . . what year is this?”

“You forgetful too? It's 2078.”

“That's just plain impossible. It was 2018 this morning.”

“Looks like you took a wrong turn. You should go back and start again.”

“Why are you laughing? My situation is not funny at all.”

“Sorry, your story is so ridiculous, I just can't help it.”

“I'm going to the bank. I'm sure they will help me.”

“Good luck with that. Hurry back when you have some creds.”
