Before They Were Part II…

By Francisco Rangel

Famous movie characters weren’t always comedians, knights or scary little
kids. They were pizza delivery guys, garbage collectors and even tech support.

Jerry Seinfeld from Seinfeld


I bought a 256MB DIMM from your company last week….

Seinfeld: Did it come in a bag? One of those bags that look like airplane
peanut bags?

Customer: Um, if you’re referring to the anti-static bag, then…

Seinfeld: What’s the deal with airplane peanuts?

Customer: Look, I just need help installing the DIMM.

Seinfeld: Why do they call it a DIMM? Are the people who created it not
BRIGHT enough?

Customer: *click*

Sir Bedevere from Monty Python and the Holy Grail


I bought a CD and I want to burn it, but I don’t know if it’s

Bedevere: There are ways of telling whether it is copy-protected.

Customer: Are there? Tell me!

Bedevere: Now, what do you do with CDs?

Customer: Burn them!

Bedevere: What do you burn apart from CDs?

Customer: More CDs!

Bedevere: No.

Customer: Wood?

Bedevere: Right. So, why do CDs burn?

Customer: Because they’re made of wood?

Bedevere: Exactly. And wood floats in water. So logically…

Customer: If the CD floats in water… It won’t be copy-protected… and
I will be able to burn it!


Customer: Thanks! *click*

Cole Sear (the little kid) from The Sixth Sense


Hi, is this where they help you with broken computers parts.

Cole: Yes. I see dead computers.

Customer: Well, I can’t get any sound from my computer.

Cole: I see. Dead speakers?

Customer: No, my speakers are working fine. The little light is on.

Cole: Sometimes speakers lights are on like regular speakers. They don’t
know they’re dead.

Customer: Oh, wait. The volume was turned down. Never mind. *click*
