“Turn the page or flip the dial or pick up your roll of quarters and leave the booth. “

I am familiar with the first two, but what does “pick up your roll of quarters and leave the booth” mean?

Best I can think of is a reference to payphones but it still doesn’t make sense.

Either a video game or a prono peep show.

Porno peep show - we used to laugh at the guys watching these when I was a teenager a long, long time ago. Precursor to porno on the internet. Shows back then couldn’t even begin to measure up with what is on some TV shows now which are free - but it’s all they had.

Well, considering his brand of humor .... maybe he’s talking about the guys that set their phones on ‘vibrate’, put them in their pocket (not the hip one), then call themselves from a phone booth. It’s an old joke .... you can tell ‘cause I doubt there are many, if any, coin pay phones any more.
