RACHEL: We won't tell anyone. Except what you do for Gregg Stepford from Evanston, Ill. He writes, "I am beginning to think my pickup line needs some work. I usually say to girls, 'According to the latest fashion trends, pants are so OUT.' Got anything better? The drinks thrown in my face are starting to make my dry cleaning bill pretty difficult to bear."
STEVE: That's a horrible line.
RACHEL: It's not good, Gregg.
STEVE: I don't really have any pickup lines for him. I haven't had to use any since high school.
RACHEL: Your pickup line now is, "I'm STEVE Francis."
STEVE: Nah, I just give the eye and the nod. That's all it takes.
RACHEL: Oh really. Is that what got your girl now?
STEVE: I don't know. I guess she was forced to mess with me because I've known her for so long. But also just being nice and sweet.
RACHEL: And the eye.
STEVE: Hey, the eye never hurts.
RACHEL: So next I picked a Maryland boy out from the mailbag just for you. Elmore Maldive from Baltimore wants to know, "Do you know any good home remedies? I don't trust doctors."
STEVE: I know if you have a cold, cognac and tea, to knock everything out.
RACHEL: That seems like it could be a cure for just about anything.
STEVE: I've heard that a million times, and I've tried it too. A little couch time never hurt either.
RACHEL: Good to know. Although you might be getting back into pickup line territory there cognac, couch time ...
STEVE: And the eye.
RACHEL: Right. Now lastly, I have to ask, what's your best piece of advice for the people out there?
STEVE: I don't have that much advice. But I do know how to hot-wire a car. I had to do it to my own car when I lost the key in college once. I just started messing around with the wires, and it worked.
RACHEL: I'm not sure this is a skill I'd be advertising. So what are you saying to everyone?
STEVE: Hey, only do it if it's your own car. And hope you don't run into the police. Then you'll really need help.
