In the homicide office, use your phone to call the Sierra Customer Support Line: (209) 683-6858.
When you call this number there is also a 30% chance that Al Lowe (designer of Leisure Suit Larry) answers the phone. He'll say the following:
Hi This is Al; Al Lowe.
Well, hello Sonny Bonds. I don't know how you got me --must have been a bad connection. But since you sound like a potential customer, let me tell you about a new game out.
I just finished a great game called Leisure Suit Larry Goes Looking for Love in Several Wrong Places (LL2 for short).
You'll love becoming Larry Laffer, who's a little bit like all of us - a jerk, a nerd, and a loser.
But you can help Larry improve his self-esteem by finding the girl of his dreams.
So how does it sound?
Well go to the nearest software store and buy a copy - the funniest and funnest game I've ever played - and I'm sure you'll like it just as much as I do.
If this sounds like a promo, it is. But then why else did you call me?
Please note though, that Leisure Suit Larry is NOT, I repeat NOT, based on my own personal experience.
I gotta go now. I'm working on my new game "Leisure Suit Larry III featuring Polyester Patty."
Oh, and by the way, "Have a nice day".

You can also call Sierra's BBS line (which tells that BBS is so popular that all 16 lines are busy): (209) 683-4463
