Friend from abroad: "Time is money: that's America!"
Marash Girl: "You can always get more money, but you can never get more time . . . "
This interchange brought to mind Jack Benny's famous comic interlude broadcast March 28, 1948:
Mugger: Don't make a move, this is a stickup. Now, come on. Your money or your life.
Jack Benny: (silence)
Mugger: Look, bud -- I said your money or your life!
Jack Benny: (after a pause) I'm thinking it over!
(or as Peter, Marash Girl's father used to end the joke -- one of his favorite's, by the way -- "I'm thinking, I'm thinking!")
