Costello: Oh yeah? I thought you was dead.

Abbott: I was.

Costello: You were what?

Abbott: I was dead.

Costello: Like a zombie?

Abbott: I believe so. That’s what the nice folks down at the morgue were screaming at me anyways.

Abbott: Never seen it.

Costello: Well whadya mean?

Abbott: I ain’t seen the second ‘Saw’ film.

Costello: Well you just said ya did!

Abbott: Never.

Costello: You did!

Abbott: No. No, I have been meaning to see that ‘Saw’ for a while now though.

Costello: ‘Saw 4?’

Abbott: For a while now, yes.

Costello: Well, I ain’t ever seen that one either.

Abbott: Which one?

Costello: ‘Saw 4.’

Abbott: Oh, neither have I.

Costello: What?!

Abbott: I haven’t seen ‘Saw 4.’

Costello: You just said ya did!

Abbott: The second film?

Costello: The second film.

Abbott: Naturally.

Costello: I don’t even know what I’m sayin’!

Abbott: Listen, I’ve seen ‘Saw’ and you’ve seen ‘Saw,’ so what else do we need to discuss?

Costello: I’m not sure anymore.

Abbott: This ain’t no reason to get all worked up, Costello. Let’s just talk about the first motion picture, okay?

Costello: Okay.

Abbott: Say, where’d you see it?

Costello: Ah, I don’t remember, it was a few years ago but I’m pretty sure I saw it at some community theatre.

Abbott: Well that’s nice, those places are usually real cheap to see a film at. Do you remember how much you paid for a ticket there?

Costello: After tax, I think about six cents.

Abbott: Why do you think about that particular film?

Costello: Which fi-

Abbott: ‘Sixth Sense?…’ I love M. Night Shyamalan!
