NBC Nightly News Bids Bye to Booth

But to know the phone booth was to love it.

[Charlie answers phone] Mojave Phone Booth, Charlie speaking!

O'Neill: There was Charlie, a desert dweller who, with nothing better to do, started answering the phone when it rang, and became a celebrity.

Voice of caller: Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam!

O'Neill: There were the thousands of people who called the 760-733-9969 number from around the world, just to see if anyone would answer.

Unidentified woman answering phone: Mojave Phone Booth!

O'Neill: What will happen to Charlie? He, of course, has no phone now, but a friend of a friend found him and he called us, from another pay phone.
[On the phone]

Charlie: I have no idea. I seen a newspaper yesterday on it, and it was just a quick deal, they just grabbed it and run with it.
