When I went in to buy the fur coat, the salesman told me, "You never in
your life saw a coat this luxurious, this fine." And he takes the coat and
throws it on the floor ... You wanna try it on, you lay down and creep into
it! I said, "Well, it looks very nice on the floor. How do you think it'll
look on me?" He's a real diplomat. He says, "Even on you the coat'll look
good." I always wondered why they throw the coat on the floor. I found out.
It's so when they tell you the price you'll have something soft to faint
