Teller in the Bank – From the Abbott and Costello radio show, “Marilyn Learns to Drive” – Bud tells Lou what position his brother has in his job at the bank. A joke in the same vein as their classic “Who’s on First?” routine
Lou Costello: Can you recommend anybody to help me with my taxes?
Bud Abbott: Sure, my brother can help you. He works in the bank.
Lou Costello: Oh, sure, my mother wanted me to ask you what he does in the bank?
Bud Abbott: Teller.
Lou Costello: As soon as you tell me.
Bud Abbott: Teller in the bank.
Lou Costello: Tell’er in the bank? How can I tell ‘er in the bank when you won’t tell me!
