"You owe me 78 dollars" is a phrase used when sarcastically demanding financial compensation, when it is completely inappropriate. Legend has it that the amount of $78 is based on a true story, where a bill for car maintenance was split between the members of a road trip, to fix damage that occurred a year after the trip.
