Taken right from Second Ave. Sagas. I used to watch this (yes, the show is that old) though not obsessively (I was above the “target demo”) but even I forget how New York-centric it was. Is it still? I mean, there is no other subway in the country where you can take the express (“it will go right by your local address!”).
And the crack about the heat? Yep, most cars weren’t air-conditioned back in the day (1970s).
