Because this, It's $9,200.
SHELLY: Yeah, it's heavy.
NICOLE: I was going to say it, because it looks old.

them, though.

authority on this program of this dreidel.
RONIN: Because that's all I could do is guess.
ERIKA STORM WASSER: Now, if you're wrong,
can I keep the bird?
RONIN: Uh-- yes.
OSHI: OK, cheap.
No, not because you said that.
Because, you know--

is it cheap now?
