The Moviephone Effect is when you answer a phone and the caller keeps pushing buttons like it's supposed to do something. This is named after an episode of Seinfeld where people would dial the fake Moviephone number, pushing buttons, and Kramer replies with, "Why don't you just say what you want?"
- "Hello, thank you for calling X. Is there a -"
- BEEP BOOOP BEEP BEEP BOOP BEEP!
- "Can I get your account number please?"
- "I just typed it. Didn't you get that?"
- "No. Why don't you just say the number?"
Also may occur when they reach the wrong menu in the Phone_Tree_Of_Infinity and think they can keep pushing buttons.
