Regis has just undergone several hours of oral surgery to fix several dental problems that he has been living with. When he arrives home, he is in great pain and is unable to talk. Kelly, one of Regis’ friends, comes over to see if Regis needs any help. When she enters Regis’ apartment, Kelly sees that the place is an absolute mess. Kelly says to Regis “hiring a cleaning lady to clean this place is going to cost you $200. I’ll clean up for you for $150. Clap once to say yes and clap twice to say no.” Regis claps once.

George is the owner and manager of Babe’s baseball Memorabilia shop. One of the most valuable items in George’s shop is a baseball bat signed by the 1918 Red Sox, the last Red Sox team to win the World Series. Pedro is an avid Red Sox fan and he would love to add the bat to his extensive collection of Red Sox memorabilia. Pedro goes to George’s shop to ask about the bat and George tells Pedro, “It is one of my favorite pieces and I would hate to part with it, but I suppose I would be willing to sell it for $10,000.” As soon as Pedro hears this, he runs out of the store and heads straight for the bank where he withdraws $10,000. He returns to George's shop with the money a few hours later, but George tells Pedro that he is not interested in selling the bat. Enraged, Pedro sues George, arguing that he and George had a binding contract to sell the bat for $10,000. Pedro will probably win the case:
