I listened to "The $50,000 Deal" on FM&M tonight and could appreciate it from the perspective of someone who is learning machine shorthand. In this episode, Molly took a phone message down in shorthand . . . and then couldn't decipher it!
In their quest to decipher the message, one of the people they appealed to was the local court reporter. Unfortunately, he got called away to court before he could help them out!
