    Some friends and I were thinking of other phrases that are so foreign to the experience of current generations that you’d actually have to explain the origins of the term:

    Roll up the window

    Dial up a number

    Drop a dime

    Turn the channel

    Insert another quarter

    Be kind — rewind

    and (almost) Phone Book, but I think they’d still know what one is.
