“Where’s my tone gone?”

I’ve often suggested that television is surprisingly free of jargon. This position is somewhat hard to maintain when faced with exchanges thus:

“Where’s my tone gone?”

“What do you mean?”

“I’m sending tone to the racks relay, but I can’t find it. Where’s it gone?”

“What’s it routed to?”

“The DS, SP, Digi, DV and SX decks. Everything but the D3.”

“Try the other Digi?”

“Nahhhhh Oh! I know! It’s that weird 440Hz for the M&Es, not 1K”

“Oh that’s what the hum is! Who the hell uses 440?”

“Read the delivery spec sheet.”

(does so) “Gaaaaaah!”

Why are Fridays never simple?
