Mother on Phone: Jimmy? Jimmy, is that you?

Jimmy: Hi, Mommy!

Mother on Phone: Oh, baby, I miss you. Are you being a good boy?

Jimmy: Yes, Mommy.

Mother on Phone: Are you brushing your teeth?

Jimmy: Yes, Mommy. I miss you, Mommy.

Mother on Phone: I know you do, swetheart.. I miss you, too. But don’t worry, you’ll be home soon.

Jingle: “Reach out.. reach out and touch someone.

Reach out.. reach out, and just say hi..”
