"'Right, Emma. We always did see things from the same angle.'

Reach out. Reach out and touch someone.

Feeling fit, and all's right with the world? The how about spreading that sunshine to a faraway friend? You can bet your leotards a simple phone call will really brighten her day. So get in touch. That phone call can keep a faraway friend close. Reach out and touch someone who's waiting to share your day."

Is that ad ever goofy...these days they'd have to slap a "don't try this yourselves without calling the doctor first folks" disclaimer on it.
