Hugh Fink's dad does not understand time zones. (1:34)

DIFFERENT TIME ZONES.

THIS IS THE EASTERN TIME ZONE

INDIANA'S CENTRAL TIME ZONE.

MY FATHERDOES NOT GET TIME ZONES.

I TALK TO HIM ONCE A WEEK.

WE HAVE THE SAME CONVERSATIONOVER THE PHONE EVERY WEEK.

"WELL, IT'S... IT'S 8:00 HERE.

MY FATHER IS A NICE GUY.

HE USES SLANG TERMSTO DESCRIBE GAY PEOPLE

I WENT TO COLLEGEIN NEW YORK CITY.

MY FATHER CALLS ME UP.

HE SAYS, "IF YOU NEED CASH, MAKEA COLLECT CALL FROM HUGH BROKE.

"THAT WAY,I'LL WIRE YOU THE MONEY

BUT I WON'T HAVE TO PAY FORTHE LONG-DISTANCE PHONE CALL."

A MINUTE LATER, MY PHONE RINGS.
