3V0787.01 Knock-knock variations (3/19/80)

Sitting with Peggy and Miriam after dinner. somehow the phrase knock knock came up..
M&P: Knock knock
M: knock knock
P: Who’s there ?
M. Tim
P: Tim who ? (the first time I heard her make the appropriate response at this point)
M. Timber !

– a second go:
M. knock knock
P: Who’s there ?
M: Orange.
P: (slowly, after a pause) What orange ?
Miriam tried again and got the same response.

– another try:
M: knock knock
P: Who’s there ?
M. Telephone.
P: In the kitchen.

Finally, Miriam went back to her original success:
M: knock knock
P: Who’s there ?
M: Him.
P: Him who ?
M: Him is after me. (Hop on Pop reference)
