"I can't talk now; I'm making 'Apple' sauce."
"This is Bill - my 1998 message will be delayed a few months. Please call back then."
"Your call is important to me, almost as important as having people say, 'Netscape? That's a sugar substitute, isn't it?'"
"This machine is best heard with Microsoft Ear, available for $39.95 at a reseller near you."
"Sorry I can't come to the phone, I'm washing pie off my face."
