  • (Benny Fine) Okay, so this is going to be a little different.

  • Okay.

  • (Rafi Fine) We're not showing you a video...

  • (Benny Fine) and instead of a video, you're reacting to this.

  • Say what?!

  • An old fashioned telephone.

  • A telephone.

  • An old fashioned phone! I always thought they were really cool.

  • Am I gonna be calling someone?

  • I like modern day phones more.

  • I'm gonna call somebody--shh!

  • How does this even work?

  • -(Benny Fine) What is that? -A phone.

  • An old fashioned telephone?

  • A telephone, but it's oldish.

  • It's not a cellphone, it's a telephone.

  • This is, like, a phone that my mom used as a kid?

  • The first ones that Alexander Graham Bell invented.

  • How do you guys still have this old telephone?

  • (Benny Fine) How do you know it's a phone?

  • Cause this is what an old phone looks like?

  • I miss toys of these.

  • Well, they're still house ones with this kind.

  • Movies. Um, my friend has one.

  • Because I read history.

  • It looks like a phone, it has a telephone,

  • and it has numbers.

  • (Benny Fine) Do you what they call that type of phone?

  • No.

  • No.

  • A dial phone?

  • A home phone.

  • Uh-uh. I just know my iPod is not like this.

  • (Benny Fine) They call a rotary phone.

  • A rotary phone.

  • Oh, yeah, 'cause of this thing.

  • Another word in my vocabulary (laughs).

  • (Rafi Fine) Do you know how to use a rotary phone to make a phone call?

  • I think you use these...I have no idea how they work.

  • Yeah, not that. No.

  • Dial the numbers, soon as I find out how.

  • (Benny Fine) There's something you have to do before you dial!

  • (Benny Fine) What's the very first thing you'd have to do

  • to use that phone?

  • I have no idea.

  • Hello, this is Lydon, and I will be teaching you

  • how to call on a rotary phone.

  • Step one: take the phone and put it right here!

  • How do you even--what? What? How do you dial?

  • Mmmm.

  • Wait...wait a sec!

  • If you want a three, put it right here, next to the hole

  • with a three, and then you take it to the piece of metal

  • and then you do another number and then another number.

  • (Rafi Fine) If you wanted to do three, you'd put your finger

  • in the three and then you'd have to go over here and then back up.

  • -(Benny Fine) And that's one number. -(Rafi Fine) And that's one number.

  • -(Rafi Fine) And you'd have to do-- -Ooh!

  • Whoa!

  • Five...

  • Dang it!

  • I would not want to work these things.

  • It's gonna take a long time.

  • (Benny Fine) And when you do pick up the phone

  • and put it to your ear, what do you listen for before you dial?

  • (imitates fax sounds)

  • Bling bling!

  • I wasn't born in the 40's, so I have no idea what you're talking about.

  • It would make a blatant sound like "eeeeeer",

  • something like that.

  • (Benny Fine) It's actually something called a dial tone.

  • Dial tone.

  • I think I've heard of that.

  • (Benny Fine) And do you know what this noise means?

  • (busy tone)

  • That they're not picking up.

  • It was disconnected?

  • Loading or searching or something?

  • Ringing?

  • Dialing?

  • Message?

  • They're on the line with somebody else?

  • (Benny Fine) It's called a "busy signal".

  • Oooh, so they press a button and then you can't

  • call them 'cause they're busy?

  • (Benny Fine) No, not exactly.

  • (Benny Fine) So you'd call them, but they're already on the phone

  • so it tells you "busy" and they'd never even know that you called.

  • Pretty not cool.

  • I mean, that's just not fair.

  • Uh...I don't want that phone.

  • I want to keep my iPhone.

  • This was awesome 20 or 10 years ago

  • and look how technology advanced!

  • Now, people don't even know what this is!

  • (Benny Fine) Do you know of what a long-distance phone call is?

  • No, I haven't known that for a long time.

  • Letters?

  • When people are in California and the other person's way out somewhere?

  • (Benny Fine) If you called someone that had another area code

  • than you, it would cost more money per minute to talk to them.

  • Awww!

  • That's crazy.

  • That's really just--they shouldn't do that.

  • But what if they did this?

  • Carried it in their backpack?

  • It was recently my birthday and all my relatives called me

  • and they all live in Chicago... so if we had one of these phones,

  • where it was long distance, they'd be like, "Happy birthday, bye."

  • because they didn't want to pay extra money.

  • (Benny Fine) How do you think you send a text message with that phone?

  • So you grab it and...oh.

  • You'd have to use these again.

  • Hmmm. No, not that.

  • Beep, boop, boop, beep.

  • I have no idea.

  • This is very confusing to me!

  • If you went to two and you wanted it to be "A",

  • you would only do it once, but if you wanted "B",

  • you'd do it twice.

  • (Rafi Fine) How would they see what you've wrote them?

  • Would it be like you pick up the phone and it's in Morse code or something?

  • You'll probably need to move it first and that'd be "A".

  • Wait, are you sure you can even text message?

  • You can't.

  • You couldn't.

  • There was no texting?

  • (Benny Fine) It was a trick question. There was no text messaging.

  • Oooh. Why'd you guys do that?

  • Then how--How?

  • They wanted to talk to their friends...oooh, that's how.

  • They would call.

  • (Benny Fine) You had no texting and no cell phone,

  • which means the only way you could talk to your friends

  • is if you were at home and they were also at home

  • and you called each other.

  • Yikes!

  • That was probably very difficult for you guys.

  • What if you got into an emergency?

  • I don't know how they would do that back then.

  • I wouldn't be able to do that.

  • It definitely made it harder, but still, people got around.

  • People survived!

  • That's horrible, especially if you haven't seen them in a long time

  • because you're super busy and then you finally get to talk to them

  • and they're not even home!

  • (Benny Fine) What was the last time you used a payphone?

  • What's a payphone?

  • What's a payphone?

  • What's a payphone?

  • This is a payphone?

  • Never.

  • Never.

  • I don't think I've ever used a payphone.

  • My parents have used them.

  • I know what a payphone is. I heard that Avril Lavigne song!

  • (Benny Fine) Have you ever seen on the street a booth that has a phone in it?

  • Yeah.

  • All it said was a blue sign that said, "Call booth."

  • I didn't know what it was.

  • (Benny Fine) You'd put money in, 50 cents, to use the telephone to call someone.

  • That's kinda like torture.

  • (Benny Fine) So we went over everything with you about this old phone,

  • -(Benny Fine) but when I give you this phone-- -Oooh!

  • (Benny Fine) Would you know how to make a call?

  • Phone.

  • Then you go press these numbers.

  • See, I'm calling that person. Oops, I'm calling that person!

  • Press the button that says "phone", put it on your ear and talk!

  • You don't have to do all this wacky stuff.

  • This is why humans are devolving. (laughs)

  • (Rafi Fine) Phone technology has changed a lot!
