Tom: Two hundred and forty two dollars.
GB: No Tom, just enough to tide you over ‘til the bank reopens.
Tom: I’ll take two hundred and forty two dollars…
GB hands him the money. Ed approaches the counter.
GB: OK Ed.
Ed: Well I got three hundred dollars here George…
GB: Well what’ll it take ‘til the bank opens – what d’ya need…
Ed: Well I suppose twenty dollars…
GB: Twenty - now you’re talking. Thanks Ed….
And so it goes on, each person reducing the amount they want to the amount they need until the Building and Loan closes, solvent, with one dollar in reserve at 6pm.
