“Of course they do. Do you think everyone who watches an afternoon serial started at the beginning? For God’s sake, Peter! Most of the shows are older than their viewers!”

“That means…”

“Come on, Peter, spit it out!”

“That means we have viewers!”

“By George, I think he’s got it! Someone give the man a cookie!”
