Remembering Favorite Tommy Quips

I’ll always remember Tommy’s humorous, short, and to the point quips to the callers. This is my favorite.

A lady from San Francisco with an old air cooled Beetle asked if it is possible to install air conditioning on her VW Bug.

Tommy: You want air conditioning? On a 1968 VW Beetle! Smoke a joint and forget about it!!

Was it Tommy or Ray who said, “Whatever it is, it’ll cost $200 to fix it if that’s what it is”?

Yes, it was Tom who said that.

I keep hearing “…sipping some ca-poo-CHEEE-no.”
