Default $50 is $50

Morris and his wife Esther went to the State Fair every year, and every year Morris would say, "Esther, I'd like to ride in that helicopter." Esther always replied, "I know, but that helicopter ride is $50, and $50 is $50." The next year Morris and Esther went to the fair and he said "Esther, I'm 85 years old, and if I don't ride that helicopter, I may not get another chance". To which Esther replied, "That ride is $50, and $50 is $50." The pilot overheard and said, "Folks, I'll make a deal with you. I'll take both of you for a ride, and if you stay quiet for the entire trip and not say a word, I won't charge you for the ride, but if you say one word, it'll be $50." Morris and Esther agreed, and up they went. The pilot did all kinds of fancy maneuvers, but not a word was spoken. He did his daredevil tricks over and over again, but still not a word. When they landed, the pilot turned and said, "By golly, I did everything I could to get you to yell out, but you didn't. I'm impressed." Morris replied, "Well, I was going to say something when Esther fell out, but $50 is $50."
