THE HOTEL MANAGER: How can I help you, sir?

UNLIKELY GUEST: Got a phone I can use? My battery’s out and my car’s broken down a few miles back –

THE HOTEL MANAGER: No phone’s here I’m afraid. Storm’s taken down the lines. Got lots of rooms for the night though.

UNLIKELY GUEST: Ah, I should probably keep going ‘til I find a payphone.

THE HOTEL MANAGER: Won’t find anywhere and even if you do, storm’s taken out all the lines… Best get cozy here for the night, wouldn’t you agree?
