RAY: How did I do it? Well, I will confess: there were obfuscations here; the fact, the Midwest thing was an obfuscation.
TOM: Yeah. A red herring.
RAY: Red, complete red herring.
TOM: Completely red, yeah.
RAY: Blazing red herring.
TOM: Blazing red.
RAY: And then when I say I find him--I didn't find him. He found me.
RAY: Because I went to the customer service desk...
TOM: The white phone.
RAY: The white phone, and I paged myself.
RAY: And he says, "That nu..."
TOM: "I'm going to go collect that 200 bucks that sleazeball hasn't paid me for 20 years!" And there he was.
RAY: And there he was.
TOM: With his hands around your neck!
RAY: His hands in my wallet!
TOM: If you were given that as part of the puzzle--"and within two minutes, he had found me and had his hands around my neck"--that would have done it.
RAY: Anyway, who's our winner this week?TOM: Winner? The winner is Susan Geyer [SP?] from Seattle, Washington.
