Corey Hotline

Corey: Hi, you’ve reached the Corey hot-line. $4.95 a minute. Here are some words that rhyme with Corey: Gory. Story. Allegory. Montessori.

It was a minor plot line in The Simpsons episode “Brother from the same Planet.” The idea was a parody on the popularity of Corey Haim and Corey Feldman back in the day. Lisa was addicted to paying $4.95/minute to hear the sweet sound of Corey’s voice telling her that one day he hoped they could get married; as well as reading her articles from the newspaper about Canada stalling on trade pacts.

Lisa eventually beat her addiction as most people do by simply making it to midnight without calling. Ya hear that alcoholics? Yeah, it’s that easy. Apparantly your twelve steps should be not drinking from noon till midnight and you will be cured. You are welcome.
