Morris and his wife Esther went to the  state fair every year, and every year Morris would say, "Esther, I'd like  to ride in that helicopter."

And Esther always replied, "I know Morris,  but that helicopter ride is 50 dollars and 50 dollars is 50 dollars."

One year  Esther and Morris went to the fair,  and Morris said, "Esther I'm 85 years  old.  If I don't ride that helicopter, I might  never get another chance."

Esther replied, "Morris that helicopter is   50 dollars and 50 dollars is 50 dollars."

The pilot overheard the  couple and said,  "Folks, I'll make you a deal.  I'll take  the both  of you for a ride.  If you can stay quiet for the entire ride, and not say  a  word I won't charge you!  But if you say one word, it's 50  dollars."

Morris and Esther agreed and up they went.  The pilot did all kinds of fancy maneuvers, but not a word was heard. He did his dare-devil tricks over and over again, but still not a word.

When they landed, the pilot turned to Morris  and said, "By golly, I did everything I  could to get you to yell out, but you didn't.  I'm impressed!"

Morris replied, "Well, I was going to say  something when Esther fell out, but 50 dollars is 50 dollars."
