Top off that Rob Roy for you, Charles? Mind if I call you Chick? You find the place okay? How do you like the layout here? Say, that is one terrific suit. These hippies today, they hate polyester, but daddy, I'm telling you, it's the future. Mind if I put my arm around you and talk real close? Hey, you got okay breath, Chick. You like girls? Shows? Gambling? Look at those sofas. I get 'em made special in Mexico. Ever go to Mexico? Oh, you and me could have some fun down there, Chicky baby. Nothing, Chick, skip it. Say, how about a bath, you like bathing? Massage? Champagne? Dom, Chick, by the magnum. Limos, platinum, silk, minks, roses and diamonds. Just follow me, Chick, follow me into the basement.

10/20/2004 Ewan Snow (5): Yes, in fact, I do mind if you call me Chick. Not sure that the hippies didn't dig polyester, though. Good obscure cliche short.
10/20/2004 qualcomm: it all depends when this short takes place, because "If the 1960s was the decade of Hippy fashions, the 1970s was the decade that the Hippies began wearing polyester. More bizzare fashions probably appeared in the 1970s than any other decade. Sport and suit jackets had wide, pointy lapels. Bellbottoms jeans were a popular fashion trend. The girls were wearing maxis and minis as well as hot pants and platform shoes. Natural or ethnic styles of the flower children and hippies. Polyester became the new staple fiber, polyester suits and shirts were everywhere. Boys wore longer hair, some at shoulder length hair. Afros also appeared during the 1970s. One major development was the widespread use of designer names and labels as an incentive to shoppers."
