Memory of the Month: Celebrate good times … come on!

In honor of GEICO’s 75th anniversary, we’re sharing an image from GEICO’s past each month this year and inviting you to exercise your caption-writing skills.

We’re coming to the end of our yearlong celebration of GEICO’s 75th anniversary, so it seems only appropriate that this Memory of the Month involves a photo of a celebration. And what says “PARTY!” more than a squeezebox, a top hat and what appears to be a stethoscope?

We don’t know what the occasion was here, but based on the lighting fixture, it’s clearly not a GEICO office building. The three principals are holding scripts in their hands, suggesting some sort of skit in progress. The woman seems rather amused by it all. So what’s going on here? Give us a scene description and some dialogue, please.

    I almost believed you were a doctor if it wasn’t for the top hat, microphone, accordion player, the forty people in this room and the fact that this is a banquet hall!!
